PPE discussed at London business hubPosted on 20/06/2014
This week saw the start of Protection & Management Week 2014, the country's biggest business event focused on protecting and managing every element of business operations.
With 60% of attendees at the event being decision makers at the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) of Britain, the topic areas were certain to come under close scrutiny. The subjects under the spotlight included fire safety, health and safety, and energy and environment.
There were a total of 21 seminars throughout the week, all free of charge to attend, with 500 authorities in each topic area presenting the sessions.
Each session varied its content and took shape in different ways. For example, mock trials took place to see how injuries at work are handled, while there were also demonstrations and displays of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Other critical areas discussed included the rising importance of cyber security, employee drug and alcohol testing, and CCTV use.
Presented by UBM Live, the group director for the firm said before the show that it will be an expo for the 21st Century. Simon Mills explained:
“Gone are the soulless tradeshows days. We are about bringing people together in an exciting way to do and find business."
Mr Mills went on to say that by bringing together the six major areas of energy, environment, facilities, fire, health and safety, and security, it will help make Britain a safer place for business.
The event took place at the London ExCel exhibition space on June 17th, 18th and 19th.
