XIX. World Congress on OSH - 2011

Opening Speech of Minister of Labor and Social Security

Working in a safe and healthy environment is among the most fundamental human rights of the working people in the world. Within this framework, the World Congress aims at contributing to ensure the sharing of knowledge and good practices in the field of occupational safety and health among developing countries, countries with economies in transition and developed countries.

Once more it will be emphasized through the World Congress that occupational safety and health is also of utmost importance for both employees and society due to the process of economic change faced by the world in recent years.

The XIX World Congress focuses on four main topics under the motto of "Building a Global Prevention Culture for a Healthy and Safe Future":

  1. Comprehensive, Proactive and Preventative Approaches to Safety and Health at Work
  2. Systems Approach for Occupational Safety and Health
  3. Social Dialogue, Partnerships and Innovation on Occupational Safety and Health
  4. New Challenges in a Changing World of Work and the Global Economy

An OSH exhibition will be held alongside the Congress, allowing participants the opportunity to witness the latest OSH technologies available.

The Ministry of Labour and Social Security would like to meet you all at a great, well-attended and fruitful event to be held in Turkey in 2011, that will give the opportunity to exchange information among occupational safety and health professionals, employers and managers, trade union representatives, policy makers, public administration authorities, insurance and social security institutions, manufacturers and importers, and all those interested in building a global preventive culture. Your participation in the XIX World Congress will be deeply appreciated.

Please enjoy the many excellent sessions offered at the World Congress and take time to visit and explore Istanbul, a fascinating city built on two continents.
