Oeko-Tex to partake at A+A trade fair in Düsseldorf

Oeko-Tex Association is participating at the industry's largest gathering of occupational health and safety companies at A+A 2015 trade fair in Düsseldorf being held from October 27-30, 2015 in hall 05, stand C 01.

Experts from several Oeko-Tex facilities will be available to advise the more than 60,000 expected visitors on the advantages and certification possibilities in the area of workwear and protective clothing.

As per a press release, more than 500 of the roughly 14,000 Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificates issued every year are allocated to workwear and protective clothing companies in all stages of production.

“In addition to ensuring specific, functional properties and a good fit, proving that the textiles are free from harmful levels of more than 300 substances, plays an important role in the certification process,” it said.

“For workwear and protective clothing, tested and certified textiles are critical as clothing is often specified and provided by the employer who is responsible for providing proper protection,” Oeko-Tex added.

In a special exhibition area in Hall 7 at the 'Safety & Security' Innovation Park, Jutta Knels from Oeko-Tex will give two lectures to educate visitors on importance of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 in workwear and PPE.

As part of the 'Global Sustainable Textiles' event at the Congress Center Düsseldorf Süd, Oeko-Tex general secretary Georg Dieners will take part in a panel discussion on 'Eco-Social Purchasing'. (AR)
