UAE, 17 October 2017:  Global innovation company, 3M will take part in supporting the development of the vocational education for youth in the UAE and the region as part of being the Global Industry Partner and Local Sponsor of the 44th WorldSkills Competition. The event will take place from October 14th to 19th in Abu Dhabi under the patronage of His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of The UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of The Executive Council.

3M is partnering with WorldSkills to proactively enhance safety and create a better understanding of appropriate protection.

3M Safety delivers workplace safety solutions to safety professionals and occupational workers across the world for more than 40 years, such as Welding and Body Protection and Head, Eye & Face Conservation products.

Nichols added: “We partnered with WorldSkills Competition to bring awareness and understanding of what the 3M brand can bring – Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and safety training fosters a safety culture, as well as improvements in safety standards around the world. We look forward to welcoming everyone to experience science applied to life at our stand.”

This year, 3M's corporate stand will highlight the importance of sustainability through interactive demonstrations and will present the Sustainability Award- Car Painting Skill in partnership with WS International and Glasruit – a brand of BASF. The 3M's Car Painting Skill - Automotive stand will showcase aftermarket care products and solutions that include car body repair and paint spraying as well as car wrapping solutions. Finally, 3M's Health and Social Care Skill stand will provide hands-on experience for 3M safety solutions and latest innovations.
