Eight months before the start of A +A 2017, International Trade Fair with Congress for Safety, Security and Health at Work, some 1,900 exhibitors from around the world have registered and Halls 3 to 11 will be fully occupied. Companies will offer the full range of the latest global trends in industrial safety, health promotion in the workplace and safety management at work. The leading international trade fair for the sector will take place from October 17 – 20, 2017 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The concurrently held 35th International Congress on Occupational Health and Safety will provide comprehensive information on current issues and challenges in the industry. As in the past, the congress will be organized by the German Federal Association for Occupational Safety and Health (Basi) and the program will be available in late spring. Again this year, the Congress will include the conference of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) as a major component in its program. It will consist of three sessions in which industry experts will discuss the following topics: “Occupational health and safety in the global supply chain”, “How companies and employers can collect and analyze occupational health and safety data in order to improve safety and personal protection at work” and “Violence and psycho-social risks in the workplace”.

In addition to the trade fair and congress, other well established A+A program elements will be presented in a range of forums, theme parks and special shows. The trend forum Safety & Security, the theme park, Occupational Fire Protection, Emergency Management and Safe Rescue Operations at Heights and Depths, the stage program on Workplace Design & Corporate Health, the Health and Safety Meeting Point and the A+A Fashion Show are all elements dedicated to certain aspects of the entire spectrum, showing specific solutions for individual sectors.

The A+A 2017 ancillary program will also include activities of this year’s partner country Great Britain. The various events will be attended by representatives of important industry associations, institutions and policymakers. The trade fair, the special shows, the presentations at the Congress and the ILO Conference will all involve participation of the Great Britain Health and Safety Executive, (HSE). HSE is the national independent watchdog for work-related health, safety and illness. It acts in the public interest to reduce work-related death and serious injury across Great Britain´s workplaces. Traditionally, Great Britain has provided the largest number of exhibitors at A+A: 85 companies exhibited at A+A in 2015 on more than 40,000 square feet.
