2021 POSTPONEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT
The ICOH Executive wish to advise a decision has been made to postpone the International Congress on Occupational Health from 21-26 March 2021 to now be held in Melbourne from 6-11 February 2022.
This is an unprecedented resolution that has become inevitable considering the impact of COVID19 we are facing in most countries and territories around the globe. The decision was made taking into account all the implications in terms of the welfare of our participants, accessibility of travel, venue availability, budget, governance and overall sustainability.
An exceptional program was planned for the 2021 Congress and the program for 2022 will build on these foundations to address the theme “Sharing Solutions in Occupational Health: Locally, Regionally, Globally”. Through keynote presentations, semi plenary sessions, special and oral presentations, a policy forum and poster sessions the latest developments and research in occupational health and safety will be presented and discussed.
For those unable to join us in Melbourne for the Congress, we are exploring online options to enable participation in what promises to be an outstanding program.
As we progress in planning for 2022, more information will be made available to assist in your planning. In the meantime you’ll find information in relation to frequently asked questions regarding the postponement and planning for 2022 here.
We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you to Melbourne and the Congress in February 2022. In the meantime, we hope you, your colleagues and family remain safe during these challenging times.
