In addition to the main conference, OSH India in association with TRIBE will

Change. This workshop will provide a comprehensive insight into the world of

discovery from the essential elements of understanding culture and behaviours,
recognising the crucial role that leaders play, learning the best way to
engage with the workforce, and how to get them involved, in order to build a
true acceptance of personal responsibility.  

Speaking on the announcement of the 4th edition of OSH Chennai 2017, Mr.
Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said , "Today, the growing
alertness and need for occupational safety at a global level, along with the
increasing casualties at unsafe workspaces has accentuated the significance of
occupational safety & health compliances amongst Indian companies. With
consistent emphasis by governments on providing workplace safety and
developing infrastructure, coupled with the rise in global investments in the
sector, there lies a huge opportunity for the suppliers and service providers
from across the world to showcase their product and solution offerings.
Chennai, being the second largest industrial hub in the country, serves as a
base for several industries. It has been a constant endeavour of UBM India to
provide a platform to the stakeholders across the industry in this region, to
showcase their innovations and technology, exchange knowledge, and connects
and creates business, thus promoting a robust safety culture across industries
throughout the region."

He added,  "The expo will also feature a power-packed two-day conference,
including a workshop on Culture and Behaviour based safety. I truly believe
that till the right culture and behaviour within a workplace is not
effectuated, systems and legalities can attain little. These knowledge-sharing
sessions will, no doubt, drive occupational safety and health as a priority
for companies, leading to all-round safety, health and productivity of
employees, benefiting the organisation, and the economy at large."

Industry validates OSH Chennai 2017 as an industry platform and reiterates the
objective of the annual expo in Chennai.  

Mr. Roopak   Jakhmola, Tribe Culture Change Limited said, "The conference at
Occupational Safety and Health India 2017 will attract businesses that have
progressive thoughts. It will present a great opportunity to share ideas. It
will also help push the objective of Behaviour and Culture based safety, which
focuses on understanding what people actually do and the reason behind it.
This gets more people involved, encourages teamwork and improves communication
on health and safety matters."

Mr Ankur Jain, Bata India Limited said, "We expect a growth of 20% in personal
protective equipment in the coming 4 years in India. Bata Industries will be
launching a new technology in Polyurethane Rubber for footwear in steel, metal
and mining industries at OSH 2017 that focuses prominently on footwear. The
government as well as regulatory bodies are conscious about occupational
safety, and supportive of the implementation and awareness on the same."

Ms. Meeta Rani, Udyogi Plastics Pvt Ltd said, "Occupation Safety and Health
has grown leaps and bounds in India during the last five years. The MNCs are
now implementing international standards of safety and the management has
begun paying attention towards the wellness of their employees. These safety
practices and culture will see a further upward curve in the next decade. The
government has also been vigilant over occupational safety and health. Safety
equipments, especially PPE, have gained in importance. Hand Gloves are the
most important PPE that consumers/experts have become sensitive while
using/reusing, with features such as its ergonomics/sizes,
flexibility/precision and life-span. Our expectations from OSH 2017 are very
high. It is a consortium for all stakeholders, consumers, companies, safety
professionals and Government Safety inspectors and we will be launching the
currently much in demand products like Proton Retractable Fall Arrestor,
Proton Gloves and Wind Harness."
