KOSHA, Host of 31st ICOH Congress in 2015 2011.06.21
Author : KOSHA

 ●  The Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency (KOSHA) won the bid for the 2015 International Congress on Occupational Health.       





    KOSHA will use its best endeavors to successfully hold the 31st ICOH Congress in Seoul in 2015.

We believe that the ICOH Congress will elevate the international status of not only KOSHA but also

Korea on the whole as the Seoul World Congress on Occupational Safety and Health did in 2008.


      In addition, Director General Kang Seong-kyu of the Occupational Safety and Health Research

Institute of KOSHA became the first Korean ICOH board member.


◎  Background of ICOH Congress and ICOH
     The International Congress on Occupational Health is a triennial event held by the International

Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH). The Congress aims to build a healthy working

environment for all by promoting exchange of experiences and information on occupational health

and preventive measures.



 - The International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH) is an international
    non-governmental professional society whose aims are to foster the scientific progress, 
    knowledge and development of occupational health and safety in all aspects.
    It was founded in 1906 in Milan as the Permanent Commission on Occupational Health.
    Today, ICOH is the world's leading international scientific society in the field of occupational 
    health with a membership of 2,000 professionals from 93 countries. Dr. Kazutaka Kogi of Japan
    has recently been elected as President.

 - There are approximately ten Korean members of the Commission.

 - ICOH conducts R&D and develops technology in various fields of occupational health ranging

    from chemical-induced illnesses, cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal diseases,

    toxicology, and atypical workers. The Commission has 35 Scientific Committees.

 - The 29th ICOH Congress was held in Cape Town, South Africa from 20th to 27th, March, 2009

    with the theme?Occupational Health, a Basic Right and a Valuable Asset to Society.

    Occupational health professionals around the world shared their knowledge and expertise at

    various seminars and sessions. The 30th Congress is scheduled to take place in

    Cancun, Mexico in 2012.
