Occupational accidents and occupational diseases are costing the lives of millions of employees every year in the world, affecting their health and living standards negatively. Those accidents and diseases cause large losses in national economies. Ensuring safe and healthy working conditions for workers and achieving sustainability of those conditions are the common goal of all countries in the world. This issue was also an important topic in the employment agenda of the G20 summit meeting which was held in Turkey in 2015.

This common goal will be achieved through sharing information, experience, system and best practices, as well as cooperation among countries.

For this purpose, Occupational Health and Safety Conferences, which had been held as regional since 2001, gained qualification as International Congress and Conference on Occupational Safety and Health after the Law on Occupational Health and Safety No. 6331 came into force in 2012. The International Congress on Occupational Health and Safety, which will be held for the ninth time this year, will be organized in Istanbul between 6-9 May 2018 with the participation of leading academicians, experts, national and international organizations, universities, chambers and non-governmental organizations.

At the Congress, occupational health and safety issues will be evaluated under 31 main headings under the main theme "Coordination and Cooperation on Occupational Health and Safety". At the Occupational Health and Safety Fair, which will be organized concurrently with the Congress, the visitors will find opportunities to meet innovations in occupational health and safety.

The Ministry of Labour and Social Security is proud to be your host for this extensive event with high attendance in 2018.

Hereby, I invite you to utilise the Congress sessions and to explore the unique beauty of Istanbul, which is the only city built in two continents.


Minister of Ministry of Labour and Social Security
