At Ifsec, 152 local companies and 52 international companies exhibited, while 46 local and 22 international businesses exhibited at the OSH expo.
The Ifsec expo aims to educate organisations on how to equip themselves with proven security and safety solutions to protect customers, employees and assets.
“With some of the most innovative technologies from around the globe and the opportunity to network with a range of industry experts and colleagues, many security professionals turn to these events to keep abreast of the latest industry trends,” says Montgomery Africa commercial events director Ross Cullingworth.
Homeland Security and Safety Africa was a dedicated zone at Ifsec, aimed at delegates representing various government departments in Africa.
It included local and international speakers such as London Metropolitan Police deputy commissioner Tarique Ghaffur, Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Willie Rattingher and international sniffer dogs and drug detection expert John Greyvenstein.
On the other side of the venue, the OSH expo was a showcase of products and services to provide professionals with an opportunity to view the latest industry trends and source the latest innovative products.
“Among other benefits, the event helps to keep delegates up to date with new legislation,” says Cullingworth.
This year, UBM Montgomery Africa and McNaughton & Associates joined forces to hold the National Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Board (NOSHEBO) conference and exhibition concurrently with the OSH expo at the venue.
The conference covered topics including the latest legal implications for companies, exploring opportunities, challenges and advances in the OSH industries in South Africa.
Talks included ergonomics in industries like mining and aviation, focused discussions on occupational hygiene reporting, as well as the upcoming revision of the OHS Act.
