Safety & Health Expo is back! Discover innovation and inspiration at the UK’s largest dedicated health, safety and workplace wellbeing event 

Safety & Health Expo, powered by SHP, returns to ExCeL London from 16-18 May this year with a packed expo hall, topical seminar programme, inspirational speakers and groundbreaking innovation. 

The UK’s largest dedicated event for health and safety, Safety & Health Expo, welcomes thousands of occupational health, safety and wellbeing professionals to learn about innovation, legislation and best practice, including formal and informal networking opportunities and over 100 exhibiting companies and key associations. 

Charlotte Geoghegan, Safety & Health Expo Event Manager, said: “Every visitor to Safety & Health Expo will have the chance to keep up-to-date with the latest health and safety strategies and regulations, network with peers and assess the latest solutions that will help keep people safe.”  

A key theme for this year’s show is sustainability 

The show’s organiser, Informa Markets, pledges to be the most sustainable event organiser in the world and is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2025.  

“We are committed to taking steps to reduce our carbon and waste footprint. To do this we are using a programme called Better Stands where we work with the contractors and exhibitors to make sure that the materials that they are using are fully sustainable.  

Making sure that the contractors the exhibitors are using are doing the right sorts of things and that they are not travelling too far and that the stands themselves are not making too much of a carbon imprint,” said Charlotte.

NETWORKING CAFÉ in association with Shirley Parsons 

Networking at Safety & Health expoThe Networking Café is the perfect place to build relationships with like-minded professionals.  

Shirley Parsons will also provide a free workshop on public speaking and communications as well as drop-in clinics with HSE Directors, mentors, career consultants and occupational psychologists to give insightful and practical advice. 


Mental health charity Mind will be exhibiting and presenting at Safety & Health Expo as the official charity partner.  

Their presentation will focus on the ways employers can support employee mental health despite the increasing financial pressures they are facing.  


IOSH has six levels of membership

In the Keynote Theatre, sponsored by IOSH, visitors can learn from:

  • The all-new Expo Gameshow 
  • Exclusive content from the HSE 
  • Big panel debates  

…and of course, our ever-popular inspirational speaker series, featuring Professor Sir Jonathan Van-Tam and Dame Joanna Lumley DBE 

“Professor Sir Jonathan Van Tam, who we will remember from the COVID press briefings, is going to talk about crisis management and communicating with impact and I can’t think of a better person to do that.  

His colourful metaphors during these press briefings helped the country to understand the challenges that we were facing, and I think had a big impact on how we behaved during that time.  

His role also has so many parallels with what health and safety professionals are doing, and I can’t wait to hear more from him,” said Charlotte. 


The operational Excellence Theatre will give visitors access to over 20 hours of practical content for senior occupational health, safety and wellbeing professionals.
