China first: safe event course in Chinese

UBM Asia has commissioned X-Venture to run the IOSH-accredited ‘Safe Management at International Events’ course in China in Chinese for the first time this month.

Based on the g-Guide, a downloadable document that sets out minimally accepted safety standards for the global exhibition and event market, the two-day course will be run twice in Shanghai from 17-20 November.

The course came about after Simon Garrett, managing director of X-Venture Global Risk Solutions and author of the g-Guide, joined forces with UBM Asia and UBM Sinoexpo to translate the relevant course materials into Chinese.

The two-day course will be run by two Hong Kong trainers and safety consultants that are both chartered IOSH members.

“The rapidly growing trade exhibition market in China is challenging even for leading event organisers like UBM especially when it comes to health and safety,” said Mr Garrett.

“This is part of a package of measures to improve health and safety and facilitate further growth on a sustainable basis. I am delighted that we have been given this opportunity by UBM.”
