Become a leader in the future of work.
Join us in Sydney, Australia for the world’s largest international forum of experts and leaders in work health and safety – where new harm prevention strategies are born, and new opportunities identified.
The World Congress on Safety and Health at Work has been at the epicentre of the work health and safety community since 1955. For the first time ever, it’s coming to Australia’s shores.
Spend four days alongside thousands of occupational safety and health leaders, experts, and decision makers from over 120 countries. By attending the Congress, you’ll experience firsthand how collaboration contributes to developing better solutions that safeguard workers’ physical and mental health and wellbeing.
This Congress will provide you access to premium learning, upskilling, networking, and the opportunity to gain continuing professional development (CPD) points.
Across the week, you’ll have your pick of learning and networking opportunities. Find inspiration and motivation at three keynote addresses. Listen and engage with experts at 24 symposia, six technical sessions, and over 30 workshops where you can earn CPD points.
There will be over 39 discussion sessions such as fireside chats and roundtables. And what would a World Congress be without on-site technical tours?
Be sure you make time to check out the International Media Festival for Prevention (IMFP) “Festival Cinema”. Grab some snacks and pop in to watch the best films and multimedia productions about harm prevention from around the world. The IMFP has taken place every three years since 1990 as part of the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work.
Your registration also includes access to grand social events such as – the opening and closing ceremonies and the Australia Night Gala. The Gala will be an unforgettable evening of live entertainment, delicious locally sourced food, and a chance to take a spin on the dance floor.
Whether you’re a first-time delegate or alumnus, the programme provides you ample opportunity to participate in interactive discussions including mock trials and fireside chats. For anyone wanting a more intimate discussion, join a living library session. These sessions are your chance to hear others’ stories and experiences in work health and safety first-hand.
We’ll also be hosting alternative ideas sessions – forums to discuss undefined and undiscovered work health and safety risks. Like a think-tank, you, and conference delegates from all over the world, will collaborate to determine the next trends in work health and safety.
The 23rd World Congress on Safety and Health at Work will be the work health and safety event of the year. Don’t miss it.
Registrations include early-bird, group, and student ticket pricing options.
