HSE dominates OSH Expo
Last year’s Occupational Heath and Safety (OSH) Expo Africa was an exciting and exhilarating event that brought all leading health and safety brands within South Africa together. This year was no different, with companies like HSE Solutions taking the Expo by storm.
HSE Solutions – a South African company dedicated to health, safety and environmental solutions – is one of the leading distributors of PPE in sub-Saharan Africa.
The company regards its involvement in this year’s OSH Expo as a huge success. “The biggest value for HSE Solutions from an exhibition like OSH is the interaction and contact we have with our network of distributors,” says Lauren Clueit, marketing manager at HSE. Exhibitors all have a lot to gain from OSH, with the constant flow of visitors giving them an opportunity to really get their name into the market and show the industry what makes them unique.
HSE had a definite advantage at this year’s Expo after proudly winning the Best Stand Award. “The brand awareness and PR opportunities that have come our way after winning are added value for us,” says Clueit. The leads that HSE has received are already turning out to be profitable, proving that the Expo not only brings in the right visitor, but also creates a platform for inventiveness and originality.
HSE fully supports OSH Expo Africa, believing that it adds significant credibility to the safety industry in South Africa. The Expo – which showcases all the latest innovations of distributors and manufacturers – provides an ideal stage for creativity and imagination. If the 2013 staging of OSH Expo Africa is at all a reflection of 2012, it promises to be a successful and worthwhile event.
“I have high expectations for the 2013 Expo,” says Clueit. “I’m hoping to see an increased footprint of visitors as well as more interactive demonstrations and presentations.”
