XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work 2017

The XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work – Global Forum for Prevention will take place in Singapore, 3-6 September 2017. The Congress will be co-organized by the ISSA with the International Labour Organization and hosted by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM).

Held every three years since 1955, the World Congress is a unique international Forum that brings together approximately 3,000 safety and health experts, decision makers from the field of social security and the public sector as well as employers' and workers' representatives from around the world to exchange ideas, research and best practices on highly topical issues in the area of occupational safety and health.

In line with the World Congress motto, A Global Vision of Prevention, the ISSA is coordinating an international campaign for a "vision zero" global prevention culture for workplace safety and health, in which strategies for occupational safety and health are not limited to the workplace, but also contribute to human well-being and benefit economies and societies.
