CIOSH 2023: Strong Comeback in Shanghai
As the leading trade fair for safety and occupational health in China, the 104th China International Occupational Safety & Health Goods Expo (CIOSH 2023), organized by China Textile Commerce Association (CTCA) and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (MDS), will be grandly held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) Hall E1-E7 from 13-15 April 2023. Following three years of epidemic prevention and control measures, the situation has stabilized in China, allowing the labor protection market to enter a phase of rapid recovery and rebound. CIOSH 2023 will attract over 1,500 exhibitors from 14 countries, showcasing their latest protective equipment and technology in an exhibition area exceeding 80,000 square meters.
Seamlessly Integrating Online and Offline Platforms
CIOSH 2023 encompasses four major sectors: Safety at Work, Security at Work, Health at Work, and Emergency Rescue Management. Renowned domestic and international exhibitors, including 3M, Honeywell, Ansell, SATA, JSP, MSA, DELTAPLUS, Lakeland, Cortina, UVEX, CM Chaomei, Xing Yu Gloves, DS, East Asia Glove, Hanvo, SOMO Zhongmai Safety, SAFETY-INXS, and TELPS, will assemble on site. At the same time, CIOSH 2023 has introduced an innovative online platform - CIOSH VIRTUAL. By offering online displays, live streaming, interactive features, and real-time communications, it breaks time and space constraints, facilitating exhibitors and visitors to continue their business exchanges and cooperations beyond the physical exhibition. So far, nearly 1,300 companies have joined the CIOSH VIRTUAL, showcasing more than 3,000 products online and attracting over 70,000 views.
CIOSH Industry Technical Seminar, Sustainable Development Emerges as the Key Focus
The annual Industry Technical Seminar, held concurrently with CIOSH, serves as an excellent platform for professionals to discuss product solutions, share industry insights, and exchange ideas on relevant policies. In 2021, China integrated climate change mitigation measures into its 14th Five-Year Plan, established a 2030 carbon peaking action plan, and proactively pursued the goal of carbon neutrality by 2060. Under the development objectives of "carbon peaking" and "carbon neutrality," the sustainable development of the personal protective equipment (PPE) industry has become the primary theme of this year's seminar. Experts from China Carbon Low-carbon Certification (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd., China Certification Centre, Inc., and SGS-CSTC Standards Technical Services Co., Ltd., will examine related policies, the effects of "carbon neutrality" on the PPE industry chain and the industries using PPE from different angles. They will also explore the future direction of PPE and offer professional guidance for the transformation of relevant enterprises.
Fall Protection Zone
Falls from height are one of the most common accidents that cause serious injury or death to workers. Effective fall protection requires not only protective equipment, but also professional instructions and training. Therefore, CIOSH set up a new Fall Protection Zone in 2021, which received unanimous acclaim. CIOSH 2023 has continued to invite SKYLOTEC, rothoblaas, JECH, Mode and NTR Safety, five companies that specialize in protection at height, to conduct on-site demonstrations on fall testing, fall protection solutions and aerial rescue, and provide visitors with the most professional fall protection guidance and training in Hall E7.
Two New Zones for Occupational Health
CIOSH has always implemented the strategy of expanding the business scope in a diversified way, which devotes itself to providing innovative opportunities and new driving forces for the sustainability of the occupational safety and health industry. This year, focusing on the "occupational health" sector, the exhibition will launch an Ergonomics Zone and an Exoskeleton Technology Zone for the first time.
People with sub-healthy status in the office are gradually becoming younger, and the "red light" of health is turned on both psychologically and physically for more and more employees. Day by day, health at the workplace has become an important proposition in workplace design. Centering on this topic, CIOSH 2023 works with MARATTI, the ergonomic unicorn brand in China, to set up the Ergonomic Zone in Hall E6 and launch the "enterprise upgrading" plan. It proposes highly targeted solutions for health at the workplace from two directions, namely the enterprise office environment, as well as the ergonomic office equipment. The Ergonomic Zone will be divided into three sections including ergonomics, light fitness and global concept. Visitors will be invited to experience a safe, healthy, comfortable and efficient working environment.
Situated in Hall E6 as well, the Exoskeleton Technology Zone emphasizes safety protection and occupational health for workers across multiple fields. Exoskeleton robots, a type of wearable robot, provide protection and enhance the wearer's abilities like an external skeleton, thus helping workers reduce labor injuries while increasing work efficiency. CIOSH 2023 has invited ULS Robotics, the exoskeleton technology sponsor for Film "The Wandering Earth 2," to display a range of commercial exoskeleton robots, guiding the visitors from the realm of science fiction into reality, and demonstrating the low-loss, highly efficient new working paradigm of human-machine collaboration.
CIOSH 2023 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) runs from 13 to 15 April. From April 13 to 14, the opening hours are 9.00 am to 4.30 pm, and on April 15, the opening hours are 9.00 am to 2.00 pm.
