International Forum on Occupational Health and Safety: Policies, Profiles and Services
20-22 June 2011, Hanasaari Cultural Centre, Espoo, Finland
We are pleased to invite you to the International Forum on Occupational Health and Safety: Policies, Profiles and Services, to be held on 20-22 June 2011 in Espoo, Finland.
Decent work is rare among today's global workforce of three billion. Due to health problems or disability, most workers will never reach the retirement age of their countries.
But times of crisis are also times of opportunity. We need a common vision to set our activities on a path of real progress. The international organizations WHO and the ILO are critically important in providing professional support to specialists and political decision-makers in the different parts of the world. The vision important to all of us, whether we are from the industrialized or developing parts of the world, is our well-being in terms of a safe and meaningful work life and life in general.
In occupational health and safety, we aim for solutions that support sustainable work and well-being worldwide. We trust that societies around the world can work together for better work, identify new visions of progress, and create new tools to help us work towards our goals.
Together we can succeed!
