OSH India 2021: Creating Awareness and Building Businesses in Occupational Safety and Health Industry

 South Asia’s largest trade show for Occupational Safety & Health industry

by Informa Markets in India


Informa Markets in India, India’s leading B2B event organiser, has announced the 9th edition of OSH India, South Asia’s largest trade show for the Occupational Safety and Health industry in the business hub of Mumbai. Slated for the 16th and 17th December 2021 at – Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, the safety show will bring together renowned exhibitors, consultants, business experts and key government officials under one roof, to discuss global best practices and seek solutions to some of the most pressing challenges in the field of workplace safety and health.  


OSH India, one of the country’s most awaited annual exhibitions for the safety industry, is expected to attract over 120 brands and is supported by associations - International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), World of Safety & Health Asia ( WSHASIA ) and Safety Appliances Manufacturers Association (SAMA). 


Ensuring health and safety in the workplace is a critically important issue; organizations that invest in occupational safety perform better, reduce turnover, and help workers do their jobs more effectively. Workers employed in manufacturing and allied sectors such as automobile, oil and gas, construction etc. are becoming especially aware of occupational hazards and, consequentially, the companies are developing a safe working environment. As a result of the increasing awareness around the significance of occupational safety & health compliances amongst Indian organisations, the government is consistently emphasising on developing infrastructure and providing workplace safety coupled with rise in global investments. Moreover, COVID-19 has forced companies to act quickly and decisively to keep workers safe. As employers endeavor to slow the spread of the virus while keeping a supportive and productive work environment, they’ve had to adapt new business processes and address existing structures that are lacking. 


The expo aims to bring together renowned exhibitors, consultants, business experts and key government officials on an industry platform to exchange global best practices and knowledge pertaining to workplace safety and health.  OSH India will be visited by professionals such as  Safety Managers, Consultants, personnel from Defence Establishments, Disaster Management Experts, Distributors and Manufacturers of Health & Safety Products,  Electrical Contracting/ Engineers, Facility Managers, Logistics Professionals,  Municipal Authorities, System Integrators and Town Planners from across India and global market. 


Speaking on the announcement and return of OSH India 2021, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, “Occupational Safety and Health of employees is a decisive factor in organizational effectiveness and focusing on spreading awareness is the need of the hour, especially with the gradual return to the workplace in a new normal amidst the pandemic. Moreover, increasing casualties at unsafe industrial workspaces has drawn attention to the significance of occupational health & safety compliances amongst companies worldwide. With regular emphasis by governments on developing infrastructure and providing workplace safety coupled with the rise in global investments in the sector, there is a huge opportunity for the suppliers and service providers from across the world to showcase their innovations and knowledge amidst an industry landscape of a vastly untapped Indian market. The OSH India expo, once again in its in-person avatar seeks to also spread awareness in focused areas such as occupational safety and health for working women, people working at heights or working with hazardous substances, workplace ergonomics, and very significantly, employee wellness when morale is at a low. We are certain that the industry will find our endeavour extremely relevant.”


The key sponsors includes : Gold Partners -Ansell & Venus Safety & Health, Silver Partner – ABN Equipments & Redstar Safety, Hygiene Partner – M.N Rubber ( Shuklaz hand gloves ) and other key brands include,  Diamond Protect, Udyogi International, Ion Science, Tarapro, Youngman, Garware Technical Fibres Ltd, Portwest UC, Joseph Leslie, Lancer Footwear, IPAF, System 5S, H2 Safety, Axnoy and many more.


This year’s two-day conference alongside the expo will discuss and deliberate on global best practice with delegates and help identify solutions and provide to the most persistent challenges in workplace safety and health. The key sessions and panel discussions at the conference will be attended by industry experts from across the country and leading international organizations such as – Tata Coffee, Tata Consulting Engineers, Nayara Energy Limited, Hindalco Industries Limited, Piramal Enterprises Limited, Sterling and Wilson Solar, Dupont Sustainable Solutions, JLL Property Management Consultants India, National Peroxide Limited, Bosch Ltd, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India,  Rustomjee Constructions, Pfizer and more.

Being associated with OSH India 2021, Mr. Hemant Sapra, President – SAMA said “The concept of Safety has redefined itself yet again with this passing year. As face masks have become an absolute necessity for everyone, there is a tremendous potential for all PPE companies to meet the rising consumer demands. However, as manufacturers, this also implies for us to be responsible in supplying the right PPE conforming to the right safety standards. Increased emphasis on research and development and continued support by the government shall foster manufacturers to stretch their capabilities and reach newer heights. Moreover, with growing safety awareness across all industries and end users, the PPE market in India looks at a brighter future ahead.”


Speaking at their participation at OSH India 2021, Mrs. Wendy Leslie Pereira, Director, Joseph Leslie & Co.
