The conference theme of "Eliminating Occupational Risk : Translating Research into Action" aims to focus on drawing together the latest work from our scientists around the world and synthesize the conclusions into a series of actions that we can seek to implement in our work.

The event is spread over 4 days, starting on the evening of Monday 28th August and concluding on the afternoon of Thursday 31st August.

This conference will be the 26th and the next conference will be in 2019. We warmly welcome all ICOH and non ICOH members and we hope you will find it a stimulating location in an exciting city with inspiring presentations and excellent networking opportunities.
