Wallace continued: “Everyone attending the Safety & Health Expo is there to raise Health and Safety standards, both individually and as an industry. The event’s a great platform for us to put ourselves in front of Health and Safety decision-makers. We read how their needs are changing, while also sharing our insights on evacuation planning.”

With a wide range of chairs to suit any need, each model is designed to help mobility-impaired people descend a staircase in any emergency without the operator needing to lift anything or have any great physical strength.

Sir Chris Hoy MBE added to Inspirational Speaker listings for Protection & Management Series 2015

Sir Chris Hoy MBE has been added as the final presenter for the Protection & Management Series 2015 Inspirational Speaker slots. Britain’s Greatest Olympian is due to take to the stage at ExCeL, London on Thursday 18 June.

Having won a total of six gold medals and one silver medal across three Olympic Games, Sir Chris Hoy reached the pinnacle of his career by winning his fifth and sixth gold medals at the hugely successful London 2012 Olympic Games.

In his motivational and engaging session, Sir Chris Hoy will talk attendees through the ‘marginal gains’ strategy which he credits for much of his success. Based on the theory that marginally optimising every possible area for improvement will result in profound progress, it’s a strategy that can be translated to any business sector.

Speaking about the announcement, Simon Mills (group director for the Protection & Management Series at UBM), said:“It’s with great pleasure that I can confirm our final high-profile speaker participating in this year’s Inspirational Speaker Series. I can think of no-one more motivating than Sir Chris Hoy. We very much look forward to welcoming him on the final day of the event in June.”
