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.  

Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House


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?
