New additions for 2015 include the transformation of the SHP legal and cultural arena into the IOSH & SHP CPD Academy. The SHP Arena has been the most popular feature at Safety & Health Expo for many years and with IOSH now involved, topics will be a true reflection of members' interests. With a focus on leadership implementation as well as topical talks on the latest legislative updates, the arena will expect to draw another strong crowd.
Another exciting addition is the International Risk Management Academy in association with the British Safety Council. This theatre is dedicated to those responsible for safety of offices around the world or those working overseas. The new Barbour Academy will be demonstrating innovative approaches to risk management. There will also be a whole day of education on CDM regulations changes that are being implemented 2015. The implications of these changes will be covered across the educational theatres.
Innovation is top of the agenda for the show floor with the new BSIF Innovation Zone, which will be a key focus for visitors seeking the latest products and services on offer in the industry. The zone will provide a theatre with product demos and true innovations from the industry.
