Exprotection in expansion

Published:  01 October, 2008

The biannual show now is expected to attract over 25,000 visitors and 800 exhibitors from all risk management sectors you can imagine, meaning that there should be something for everyone.

ANACT – the National Agency for the Improvement of Working Conditions – will present two conferences as part of the Risk Management Forum: Acting to prevent psychosocial risks, and Conducting an occupational risk assessment: the analysis of risk exposure conditions approach.

An Innovation Zone at the heart of the exhibition area will highlight all the latest new products and services of exhibitors in the risk management market. On the opening day the Innovation Awards will be handed out, and recognition given out in: safety/security, fire prevention, health and safety at work, industrial and technological risks, natural risks, workwear, internet user prize.

New to the show this year is also the so-called “Ergonomics Village”, an area totally dedicated to ergonomics, and with about 30 manufacturers and distributors exhibiting.
