The 8th International Safety conference will examine the state of Occupational Health and Safety and the role it plays in the sustainable development agenda in the public and private sectors. It will review the literature on the triple bottom line (people, profits and planets (environment) and how they are affected by Occupational Health and Safety Policies and the effects of work related hazards on sustainable development. The event as a stakeholders’ conference will also reveals the Occupational Health and Safety Three (3) Pillars similar to sustainability; Economy, Environment and Society.

2018 CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

Based on ILO estimates, 2.3 million workers die every year from work-related injuries and diseases. An additional 160 million workers suffer from non-fatal work-related diseases and 313 million from non-fatal injuries per year. The economic costs to companies and economies is significant. The ILO estimates that more than 4 per cent of the world’s annual GDP is lost as a consequence of work-related fatalities, disasters, accidents, injuries and diseases.

In line with the relevant Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets related to Health and Safety at the Workplace, the year 2030 will substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water, and soil pollution and contamination. Also promote safe and secure working environments of all workers, particularly those in precarious employment.

Right now, our soils, freshwater, oceans, forests and biodiversity are being rapidly degraded. Climate change is putting even more pressure on the resources we depend on, increasing risks associated with disasters, such as droughts and floods. Many rural women and men can no longer make ends meet on their land, forcing them to migrate to cities in search of opportunities.

The health of workers is a major determinant of productivity. Health and Safety challenges always leads to discrimination against workers or result in major expenditures for governments and enterprises. A vicious circle of poor health and safety, reduced working capacity, low productivity and shortened life expectancy.

The conference will be addressing the underlying problems of irregular and lack of social protection and will create the platform to promote health and safety at workplaces; because healthy and safe workplaces are more productive factor that make businesses more sustainable.
