The 2023 Korea International Safety & Health Show (KISS 2033) brought together about 30,000 spectators, including business owners, safety and health officials and workers, the most-ever one. 

KISS 2023 took place for a four-day run from July 3 at KINTEX in Goyang, north of Seoul. 

The exhibition was hosted by Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency (KOSHA) and supported by the Ministry of Employment and Labor (MOEL). 

A tape-cutting ceremony for opening the fair was held in front of KINTEX Exhibition II &A Hall on July 3. 

Among those on hand at the event were MOEL Minister Lee Jung-sik, KOSHA President Ahn Jong-ju, Chairman Park Jong-sun of Korea Industrial Safety Association and Chairman Kim Moon-soo of the Economic, Social & Labor Council. 

In accordance with the enactment of the act on the punishment of industrial disasters, the government elevated the current Industrial Safety and Health Week to the Industrial Safety and Health Month. 

A separate pavilion was set up to inform major industrial safety and health policies, including a roadmap on serious industrial disaster reduction. 

MOEL and KOSHA held a ceremony to celebrate the 2023 anniversary of the Industrial Safety and Health Month at KINTEX. MOEL Minister Lee called for labor-management cooperation. 

“Making worksites safety and healthy is possible by workers’ responsibility and active participation on top of the government and companies’ efforts,” Minister Lee said. 

The fair operated a technology demonstration zone and a foreign buyer lounge to help protective gear and protection device makers boost sales and explore foreign markets. 

Eighteen people were honored in recognition of their contribution to the prevention of serious industrial disasters. 

In accordance with the enact on the act on the punishment of serious disasters, worksites have been scrambling to establish self-controlled, preventive regimes, acquire the latest safety technologies and tactics and employ advanced smart safety and health technologies and equipment. 

Rising concern over industrial safety and health was the reason why KISS 2023 attracted a huge 29,752 spectators, the most-ever figure.
The exhibits were divided into six categories: industrial safety and protective gear, industrial health and occupational health, smart safety, public services and public safety management, chemical industry safety and anti-disaster industry. 

Among the eye-catcher items on display were AI cameras and smart safety balls. It was noteworthy that KISS 2023 attracted many prominent large-sized companies and institutions. 

SK Telecom and SK Shieldus joined forces to showcase 11 items in three areas — vision AI and intelligent safety gear and smart monitoring. In particular, an “AI Camera Solution” that automatically detects a dangerous industrial situation or a collapse inside an elevator attracted many spectators.

POSCO demonstrated “Smart Safety Ball,” designed to detect harmful substances in closed space, known as “unseen killers.” 

Smart Safety Ball, its first kind in the world, is capable of giving a warning signal when it detects certain concentration levels of harmful substances, such carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide.
