Bolstering business and safety in Botswana
To increase awareness of health and safety in Botswana, A-OSH Expo Botswana has co-located with Electra Mining to stage a major event in Gaborone
Electra Mining Botswana is expecting more than 2 000 people to visit its mining, industrial and power-generation expo at the Gaborone Fairgrounds from September 10 to 12. Specially designed to promote business growth in Botswana, displays at the trade show will feature each of the sectors’ latest technologies, machinery, products and solutions.
The event will be co-located with A-OSH Expo Botswana, an occupational health and safety (OHS) initiative aimed at promoting awareness and the importance of safety standards.
“There is currently no OHS Act in Botswana,” says event director Charlene Hefer. “We are excited to have partnered with a local Botswana company, TRM Group, with its focus on promoting a safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly workplace, and increasing health and safety awareness in the country as a whole,” she says.
In addition to new products and live demonstrations, a full programme of free-to-attend seminars will also take place alongside the events. Hefer says: “The seminars will provide an excellent learning opportunity for exhibitors and visitors. Speakers will address a variety of topics pertinent to both industries, and will add value with their knowledge and expertise.”
