Message from the President

Dear ICOH Colleagues,

The various guidance documents produced through our ICOH activities are utilized as important references for assessing and controlling health and safety risks at work. Many of them result from ICOH Scientific Committees or international task forces in which ICOH members are involved as key experts. We all know we need to accelerate our joint work in this direction.
When I attended the meetings of some of our Scientific Committees held this year, I was pleased to note that concrete plans are envisioned for producing useful guidance documents by these SCs.
