Mining and safety go side by side
Occupational health and safety (OHS) is an emerging market sector in Botswana. Therefore, there is a growing need for occupational health and safety training, as well as the range of products and services that support this. In September, Electra Mining Botswana, a leading mining, industrial and power-generation expo, will be held together with the recently launched A-OSH Expo Botswana.
The show will take place at the Gaborone Fairgrounds from September 10 to 12. It will be an all-encompassing event showcasing the latest technologies, machinery, products and solutions related to mining, industrial and power generation, as well as all things associated with occupational health and safety.
As a forum for trading, networking, learning and product sourcing, the co-located events will provide an excellent opportunity for local and international exhibitors, industry associations, government officials and industry professionals to connect over three days at one venue.
Charlene Hefer, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, says: “A-OSH Expo Botswana is an ideal vehicle to promote occupational health and safety in Botswana. This experience is further supported through our partnership with local Botswana firm, TRM Group, which is a forerunner in occupational health and safety in Botswana.”
Gorata Manyaapelo, MD of the TRM Group, says: “The TRM Group has proved to be pioneers and leaders in occupational health and safety. Our company is at the helm of ground-breaking initiatives for the safety, health and environment movement in Botswana. This event is a great platform to showcase the industry and latest trends in this sector.”
In addition to new products and live demonstrations, a full programme of free-to-attend seminars will also take place alongside the event. Hefer says: “The seminars will provide an excellent learning opportunity for exhibitors and visitors at the show. Speakers will address a variety of topics pertinent to both industries, and will add value with their knowledge and expertise.”
“With its local and international participants and leading brands on show, Electra Mining Botswana and A-OSH Botswana Expo will be of benefit to exhibitors who want to expand their footprint in Botswana and also to visitors who want to source the latest products and services, and to learn about new technologies and solutions,” concludes Hefer.
