10th International Congress on Occupational Safety and Health, which we plan to hold between 11-14 July 2020, has been canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic.

As it is known, the New Type Coronavirus, which emerged in the city of Wuhan, China, has been defined as an intercontinental epidemic by World Health Organization, by affecting all the countries of the world by showing global spread. Many national and international organizations planned as of 11 March 2020, when the outbreak occurred in our country, were canceled or postponed within the framework of the measures taken.

In this context, we postponed the "10th International Congress on Occupational Safety and Health" that we planned to hold on 3-6 May 2020, with the announcement we published on 19 March 2020, to 11-14 July 2020. However, the "10th International Congress on Occupational Safety and Health" has been canceled in order to contribute to the healthy execution of the normalization process.

We would like to thank Scientific Advisory Board Members of our Congress, to local and foreign speakers who are invited, to our valuable academics who have started to evaluate the abstracts, and to those who have registered as a participant, to all health and safety professionals and everyone who is interested. The fees of participants who register to our Congress will be refunded, and the rights of our participants who have contributed academically to our Congress will remain until the next congress date is announced. As the evaluation process has not yet started for the competition applications with the theme of “Strong Communication, Safe Workplace” to be organized, it is important that the applicants act in line with the announcements to be made from the congress website.

With the hope of organizing our Congress soon, Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you all in Turkey soon!

Best regards.


General Directorate of Occupational Health and Safety
