Set against the backdrop of increased globalisation, fluctuating business climate, stringent regulatory pressures and difficult workplace environments, the protection of worker health represents a considerable challenge.

The economic downturn has downsized employee health systems and preventive infrastructures; which is making effective interventions at the workplace difficult. Held under the patronage of H.E. Abdulla Bin Khalid Al Qahtani, Minister of Public Health, the Employee Health & Wellbeing Conference aims at reducing the economic burdens of workplace injury and illness.

Embedding the theme, “Global Action Plan : Protect Worker Health – Let the Business Thrive”; the conference program is designed to enhance professional capabilities of OH practitioners through peer-led interactive sessions, thought provoking debates, real-life case studies, and solution based masterclass. The conference promises to offer a rich selection of industry-leading education and debate on the following:

  • Occupational Health: A Key Determinant for Sustainable Development
  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Evidence & Risk based Health Surveillance

  • Future Delivery & Influence of Occupational Health

  • Cultivate Healthy & Safety Resilient Workplaces – Above & Beyond Workers Welfare

  • Industrial Hygiene in Health Protection – Partners in Success

  • OH At 35,000 Feet - Air Industry Medical Challenges

  • Preparing for the Unexpected : Pandemic & Disaster Management
