After the successful premiere in 2014, TOS+H EXPO, Turkish Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition, will return to the Halic Congress Center in Istanbul from May 4 - 6, 2016. Next year, TOS+H EXPO will be held concurrently with the VIII. International Health and Occupational Safety Conference organized by the Turkish Ministry of Labour and Social Security. Together, they will not only generate important synergies but also provide an all-encompassing market and communication platform for the occupational safety sector.

TOS+H EXPO 2015 will be organized by Messe Düsseldorf and its local partner Tezulaş Fuar, presenting attendees the latest trends and equipment for personal protection, health and security at the workplace. Messe Düsseldorf is renowned as the organizer of A+A, the leading international trade show for the occupational safety industry held every two years in Düsseldorf, Germany (next staging: October 27 - 30, 2015).

Due to the high number of employees (27 million) and the above-average economic growth, Turkey has become an attractive market for protective gear suppliers over the past few years. In 2013, Turkey was the partner country of A+A. Based on this partnership, the cooperation with the Turkish Ministry of Labour and Social Security was formed. According to Faruk Celik, Minister of Labor and Social Security, there has been a clear improvement of safety levels at the workplace with companies placing more emphasis on prevention. Kasim Özer, Director General for Occupational Health and Safety in the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, emphasized: “Establishing prevention customs is an important challenge when pursuing the goal of avoiding occupational accidents and diseases in Turkey.”

The last staging of TOS+H EXPO in 2014 attracted 3,450 visitors and 90 exhibitors. Top international companies such as uvex, Honeywell, 3M, Werksitz, Bata, Mapa, Innotech and Ansell Healthcare Europe as well as Turkish companies including Kaya Group, Yakupogullari and Ismont presented their personal protection products.
