Abstract

Aim of special session

Successful examples of collaborations and WHWB projects for building occupational health and safety capacity will be illustrated, noting how better interactions with other national and international organisations could increase impact. Discussion will focus on how to increase these collaborations and how WHWB can expand its footprint globally, to improve its current offerings in terms of delivering training, mentoring, development and translation of guidance materials, and technical assistance to build knowledge and capacity in occupational health and hygiene, particularly for under-served workforces in both developed and developing countries.
