This year’s edition of The Health & Safety Event 2022 will be held on 5-7 April 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham.
It is an unmissable opportunity for health and safety professionals to come together to share best practices and explore the latest innovations and trends in the sector. With a unique range of seminars, practical workshops, and exhibition halls, it attracts thousands of workplace professionals from the industrial, commercial, and public sectors.
With specialist zones, dedicated forums and break out areas, there will be opportunities to broaden your network and start building long lasting relationships with other health and safety professionals. New for this year, The Health and Safety show has introduced an event platform and app to help visitors plan their visit in advance. There will also be networking drinks at the end of day one and two in the networking cafe from 16:30 – 18:00 to meet colleagues and peers. Drinks will be courtesy of the organisers.
Speaking to David Bishop, Event Director of The Health & Safety Show, he said: “The theme of all our events has always been to focus on business resilience because we’re all about helping businesses find tools to combat anything that is thrown at them. The show’s key themes this year will have a big focus on business resilience, sustainability, mental health, and occupational health. These areas will be integral to industries and businesses and how they partner together going forward.”
Seminars and conferences
At this year’s show there will be five different seminars taking place across different theatres. In partnership with Lone Worker Safety Live, The Lone Worker Theatre will bring together experts in their field to explore the challenges for lone and remote workers as we settle into new ways of working after the pandemic.

In partnership with Driving for Better Business, the Driver Safety Theatre will hear from experts sharing a series of presentations and panel discussions covering legislation updates, driver fatigue, distraction, staff culture and vehicle safety.
