Safety & Health Expo, Europe's largest annual health and safety event, returns on 11 - 13 May 2010 to the NEC Birmingham. The event, which will be hosted in partnership with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), was a huge success in 2009 attracting more than 19,000* industry professionals to the show.

Adrian Newton, Portfolio Director of Safety and Building Management at UBM Live, organisers of Safety & Health Expo, said: "We took the opportunity in 2009 to launch a raft of exciting new features to compliment the established mainstays of the event. These features were born out of comprehensive industry research and were a huge hit amongst our visitors. We will therefore be expanding the programmes in all our features to further enhance the visitor experience and look forward to building on last year's successes."

More than 300 industry renowned companies will showcase their latest developments at the extensive exhibition, including 3M, ARCO, BM Polyco, British Red Cross, Connaught Compliance Training Services, Draeger, Moldex, Safety Media, Scott Health & Safety and Traka.
