Success at Health and Safety Trade Fair CIOSH 2023
The 104th China International Occupational Safety & Health Goods Expo (CIOSH 2023) closed with great success at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNICE) on April 15. Jointly organized by the China Textile Commerce Association (CTCA) and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (MDS), CIOSH 2023 was the first occupational safety and health trade fair to be held in China following the extensive relaxation of epidemic-related restrictions.
A total of 1,522 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions showcased their state-of-the-art protective equipment and technology on more than 80,000 square meters of exhibition space. The three-day exhibition attracted a total of 47,616 trade visitors, representing an increase of 32.6 percent compared to CIOSH 2021 and 90.4 percent compared to CIOSH 2019, which was not only on par with pre-epidemic levels but even higher.
The annual Industry Technical Seminar is a critical component of CIOSH. On April 13 and 14, the Industry Technical Seminar brought together protective equipment professionals with university professors, technicians, certified testers, and corporate executives. With a focus on the sustainable development of the personal protective equipment (PPE) industry, the 16 seminars focused on topics such as the application of new materials and technologies, the impact of “carbon neutrality” on the PPE industry chain as well as current national policies and environmental changes. Experts also explored the correlation between the PPE industry and the growth of China’s manufacturing sector, offering new perspectives to attendees.
Since “safety belts” used in some scenic areas in China had proven unsafe, high-altitude safety issues have been brought to the forefront of public discourse this year. As a result, a Fall Protection Zone was set up as key area of CIOSH 2023.
New features at CIOSH 2023 were the Ergonomics Zone and the Exoskeleton Technology. The ergonomics area, designed by CIOSH and MARATTI – the cult brand for ergonomics in China – offered very specific solutions for the less than optimal health of employees in office jobs. Visitors were invited to relieve their backs by using ergonomic seats, maintain office fitness through healthy dynamic balance stations and effectively address the health problems associated with prolonged sitting. In the Global Concept Center, visitors experienced the energy created by creative workplace space designs for Generation Z.
The Exoskeleton Technology Zone featured two exoskeleton robots for upper extremities and waist from ULS Robotics, demonstrating a low-loss and high-efficiency working model achieved through human-machine integration. Visitors tried on the exoskeleton robots and felt the support provided to their arms and waist, making it easier to perform heavy and repetitive tasks.
The 106th China International Occupational Safety & Health Goods Expo (CIOSH 2024) will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from April 25 – 27, 2024. A+A, the world leading trade fair for safety, security and health at work will be held soon in Düsseldorf, Germany from October 24 – 27, 2023.
