Aim of special sessionThousands of companies globally report publicly on their occupational health programs and impacts. This information is used by a variety of stakeholders, such as investors, to inform decision making about companies. The availability of this information is, however, not yet widespread, and there are challenges with the quality and comparability of the data. A number of efforts are underway to improve and standardise this information. This session offers to learn from key organisations and experts in the field about latest developments on what is expected from companies regarding occupational health measurements and public disclosure. This session will also unveil the updates to the GRI Occupational Health and Safety reporting standard, which will outline minimum transparency expectations for companies globally around occupational health – including basic data on work-related illnesses, the management of health hazards, and the use of occupational health services and worker health promotion programs.1Ms. Nancy J.
