IPAF – the International Powered Access Federation – is a non-profit organization focusing on the safe use of MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms).
One of the reasons for exhibiting at OS+H Asia is the growing number of members in Singapore, whom we want to support with our presence here. The exhibition is very successful for us, we had a number of high-level meetings, for example with the Device Prime Minister, representatives from the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) but also construction companies and contractors. This is an attractive opportunity for us and our members to spread the safe use of MEWPs as the interest in Singapore is huge.
Here we can also reinforce our safety campaigns for example for the safe use of safety harnesses.
Furthermore IPAF holds its first IPAF Asia Conference concurrently to the exhibition. This event is supported by the MOM and features high-level speakers who will talk about the safe use of MEWPs.

We provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from head to toe since more than 50 years. Besides our own products we also distribute brands like Quebee and Safeware. OS+H Asia is ideal for us to launch new products for example new PVC boots or chemical absorbents. Our mission is to educate visitors about PPE and advocate safe working environments. OS+H Asia is the only platform for WSH and we are extremely satisfied with the quantity and good quality of the visitors to our booth.

The Singapore Institution of Safety Officers is once again glad to support OS+H Asia. This exhibition is significant for us as Singapore moves from just doing safety to changing the culture of safety. We are delighted that Messe Düsseldorf Asia is promoting workplace safety and enlarging the knowledge and outreach to people to let them know how to do it right and how to do it well.
We have a good mix of exhibitors here, ranging from hardware to software for all that is needed to create a safe and healthy working environment. There are a number of new features at the exhibition, for example step leaders.
SISO and MDA have been partners for the past eight years and we are looking forward to working together in future. The exhibition is an excellent platform for people to get to know what they need to work safely. Concurrently to the exhibition we have organized the second Forum on Workplace Safety & Health, together with MDA. This is an essential part of the exhibition where people can meet to learn and exchange ideas about the challenges to come.
The safety landscape in Singapore is evolving from being just reactive to a more active approach and self-management. We aim for workers not only to work safe because they are told to, but because they want to.
Seet Choh San, President, Singapore Institution of Safety Officers
We are exhibiting at OS+H Asia to show our new product – THORZT – for the first time in Asia. This is an ideal opportunity to check the business opportunities in Asia. The exhibition has been amazingly successful and we achieved a very good understanding of the market potential. We have had visitors from all over Asia at our booth. Our main aim is to find distributors for our new electrolyte, replenishment drink as well as for our range of PPE products. We met a lot of potential distributors, more than we expected. So this has been a great show to launch our new product and to see what is going on in the Asian safety market.
Will Bird, Paramount Safety Products
The exhibition has been good for us; we come back every time to promote new products. We are very happy with this year’s turn-out.

We would like to thank the organiser for organising such a great exhibition. This year 3M is celebrating its 40 years anniversary in safety leadership. OS+H Asia provides us with an ideal platform to reach out to our customers and more importantly to elevate the knowledge to our customers. At this year’s exhibition we launched a number of innovative products and with the help of Messe Düsseldorf Asia we have organised a private event for our customers. Our customers really appreciated this networking opportunity. 3M has been very supportive of OS+H Asia and we are definitely coming back the next time and many years to come.

VISITING DELEGATION (JAPAN) We are here with twelve members and this is the first time we are visiting OS+H Asia and we are very happy with our visit. The exhibition is very useful and have seen a lot of distributors and manufacturers of PPE.
