Sydney set to host 23rd World Congress on Safety and Health at Work
It has been announced that Sydney will host the 23rd World Congress on Safety and Health at Work at the International Convention Centre on 27–30 November 2023.
Australian President of the World Congress, Andrew Gavrielatos, said, “This is the first time Australia will host the event and given the technological advancements we’ve seen in recent years, the timing couldn’t be more appropriate to showcase our progressive approach to work health and safety”.
The theme of Sydney’s Congress will be ‘Shaping change: Collaborating for a healthier and safer world of work’.
“The congress has become one of the world’s largest events for the international occupational safety and health community – attracting thousands of delegates from across the world,” Mr Gavrielatos said.
The World Congress on Safety and Health at Work was established in 1955. It is held every 3 years, each time hosted by a different country, as a global forum to advance worker health protection.
“The world is changing and so is the world of work. The World Congress is a forum for the global health and safety community to come together to shape change and create safer work for all,” Mr Gavrielatos said.
The Sydney World Congress is being co-organised by the International Labour Organization, the International Social Security Association and SafeWork NSW.
