XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work
3 - 6 September 2017, Singapore
The World Congress is the world biggest gathering of OSH experts and practitioners. It takes place every three years – each year a different country is the host.
XXI World Congress in Singapore was organised jointly by the Ministry of Manpower of Singapore, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Social Security Association (ISSA). It gathered about 3,500 representatives from all over the world.
The motto of the congress was “A Global Vision of Prevention” and it addressed three main topics:
Alongside the World Congress the International Media Festival for Prevention (IMFP) took place. It offered an overview of films and multimedia applications on safety and health at work from all over the world. During the Congress selected films and multimedia products were presented by the members of the festival jury. CIOP-PIB delegated one of the jury members. The Short-List of the submissions are available on the site www.safety2017singapore.com/imfp/.
In response to young worker vulnerability to injury and illness, the ILO was also hosting the SafeYouth@Work Congress – a parallel programme at the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work – which was an opportunity for young people to bring their voice to the discussion on safety and health in the workplace, and to help build a global network of youth OSH champions.
