Intersec to focus on workplace safety
Dubai, September 24, 2009
Workplace safety will be a key theme at the forthcoming Intersec trade fair and conference in Dubai.
Human error and unsafe behaviour account for almost 90 per cent of all accidents, including those caused by inexperienced and unskilled workers, said a statement.
Safety and health experts will explore solutions to this problem at Intersec, due to take place at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from January 17 to 19, 2010.
Intersec trade fair and conference is the largest event for commercial security, IT security, safety and health, fire and rescue, and homeland security and policing in the Middle East and beyond. It plays a major role in reflecting the security industry worldwide.
The most common cause of accidents or industrial accidents is often attributed to human error such as operational error, judgmental error, or job-related error, all of which are caused by human characteristics. Most of these errors are said to be associated with psychological factors affecting human behaviour, said the statement.
Intersec 2010 will for the first time present an industry-led approach to major topics in the health and safety industry. Leading exhibitors as well as local industry experts will be discussing the latest issues and trends in the industry at the ‘Safety and Health Forum’.
Intersec trade fair and conference in 2010 will host an Indoor Demonstration Area which provides safety and health exhibitors with the option of demonstrating their products and/or services effectively on a larger scale and in a more interactive atmosphere, it said.
The ‘Safety and Health’ segment will have widespread appeal to those involved in construction, law enforcement, municipalities, federal government, hospitality, health care, industrial manufacturing, as well as transportation, the statement added.
The key exhibitors showcasing the latest in safety and health include BM Polyco, BW Technologies by Honeywell, BSI, DuPont, Everlux, HAIX, Honeywell Analytics, Honeywell Life Safety, JSP, Lenzing, MSA, Sperian Protection, Draeger Safety and many other leading companies.
The 12th edition of Intersec is projected to be the largest yet, with over 710 exhibitors from 50 countries and over 17,200 trade visitors from 96 countries expected to take part. – TradeArabia News Service
