International Occupational Health - Current situation and future trendsOrganized by: University of Helsinki, Department of Public Health/Occupational Health Topics:
Scope and purpose of the Conference
Globalization has a growing impact on conditions of work and occupational health as well; It sets new challenges, provides new opportunities and needs for protection of workers health in rapidly changing work life. Occupational health needs of workers develop quantitatively and qualitatively in both the industrialized world and in the emerging and developing economies. New occupational health problems are identified and several re-emerging diseases have been recorded. The scope of occupational health is expanded from traditional occupational medicine to comprehensive occupational health, covering not only detection and prevention of diseases but also prevention of several other conditions, such as psycho-social problems and challenges to promotion of work ability of workers. New strategies, methods and approaches in occupational health practices are warranted and developed.
International organizations, national governments and professional communities need to keep abreast with the developments and challenges of the current situation and on the trends of future. The younger occupational health experts are going to work in growingly international settings and their work will more than before be modified and affected by international factors and trends.
The purpose of the Conference is to get an overview of the current international and global situation in occupational health, identify the existing challenges and have a look at the future perspectives and trends.
