Creative printer and experts in durable printed safety products, XIC, is bringing the North-east’s only dedicated QHSE event, The Safety Expo, to P&J Live on Thursday, September 21, 2023.
Open to everyone, but particularly suited to QHSE and procurement professionals, the expo is free to attend and aims to highlight local businesses’ immense talent for health and safety products and services.
Showcasing training providers, workwear and PPE suppliers, equipment demonstrations and safety literature specialists all under one roof, the event provides the ideal opportunity for attendees to network with exhibitors and discover innovative solutions that align with their operations.
Additionally, with environmental concerns remaining at the top of companies’ agendas, cleaner technology and solutions will also be at this year’s forefront, with EV charging and chemical free products being exhibited.
A number of local businesses have already signed up to exhibit at the event, including this year’s gold sponsors, Aquaterra, Clyde Training, Drager, Omniscient Safety Innovations (OSI), P3 Business Care, Red Wing, STC INSISO, Step Change in Safety, Total Safety, Synergy and Steven J Innes.
Bringing the latest in QHSE equipment, attendees will be able to witness in-person demonstrations from a variety of organisations including AquaTerra, Drager, Forest Training and Total Safety,
During the event, host Steven J Innes will be presenting on behalf of his business, Synergy, as well as introducing an influential lineup of speakers which features entrepreneur Bob Keiller, Brett Townsley of OSI, Alan Smith of STC INSISO, Jim Grimmer of P3 Business Care and Steve Rae of Step Change in Safety.
Covering an array of topics from how you can be more persuasive when it comes to change, to removing psychological barriers to improve mental health and considering long-term consequences from our choices, this year’s programme is set to captivate the crowd and deliver useful advice that can be easily implemented into business strategies.
Jason Moir, director at XIC and organiser of The Safety Expo said: “The North-east has incredible organisations on our doorstep which are paving the way for QHSE advancements on a global scale.
“The forward-thinking approach to this sector needs to be celebrated, and following smaller scale expo’s in the past, we’ve witnessed first hand the demand for this type of event.
“The 2023 Safety Expo is back and bigger than ever before and our primary aim is to not only help unlock the potential of these businesses, but enhance QHSE operations across the region as a whole.”
As experts in creating high quality print materials for these organisations, XIC, along with its bespoke safety tag division, Inspection Tags, will both be exhibiting at this year’s event, helping organisations effectively highlight important information through designing and delivering engaging safety campaigns.
Catered by P&J Live, both attendees and exhibitors will be able to purchase food and refreshments from the venue’s street food range, offering the perfect environment to informally network.
