Besides, education, training, consultation and exchange of information and good practices are essential for prevention and promotion of such measures. Through OSH South India 2018 and SAFE South India 2018, we have provided an opportunity for stakeholders across the health, safety and security industries to showcase their innovations and technology, understand new industry trends, network and create new business connections. This is an industry that banks on newer and improved technological innovations on a constant basis. Naturally, there is an immense growth potential along with the learning and networking opportunities for suppliers and service providers at these expos.”

“Notably, for the first time since their inception, the co-located OSH and SAFE expos for South India have been brought to Hyderabad this year as a strategy to rotate them across the several key Indian cities in South India. This move also aims to bring the expos closer to the end-user community and spread awareness across this region on Health & Safety best practices. The response we have got here has been extremely encouraging.” He further added.
