AFRICA OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY CONFERENCE 2023

November 29, 2023 @ 8:00 am - December 1, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

Background

Bussynet Advanced Trading’s Occupational Health & Safety is back at the Birchwood Hotel & Conference Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. To be held from the 29th of November until the 1st of December 2023, this year’s conference will dive deeper into the benefits of using technological applications in keeping workers safe in their respective industries.

Obviously, safety directors and officers have had to consider new workplace safety measures following the Covid pandemic and at the conference, we will discuss these issues and how the workplace changed as physical contact with work colleagues reduced.

Besides, with the climate threat now apparent for all – as evidenced by the recent cyclone and flood disaster in Zimbabwe and Mozambique – we will explore what corporations can do to help keep their surrounding environments safe for the whole ecosystem. Sustainable growth by corporations is becoming more urgent by the day, as corporate are required to live in harmony with their surrounding nature.

Among other topics, this year, we will focus on the following:

  • The changing dynamics of workplace health and safety
  • Wearable safety and health technology
  • Safety and Health technologies for sedentary jobs
  • Predictive health and safety technology
  • ESG and its impact on occupational health and safety
  • EHS and the HSE professional
  • The future of work and implications for employee wellness

The three-day event will see experts and stakeholders discuss issues and trends relevant to policy makers, OHS practitioners, and the future wellbeing of workers. There will be focused sessions on current issues such as occupational health, mental health and wellbeing, digitisation and its impact on OHS industrial hygiene and several other areas related to OHS.

We have brought together thought experts and practitioners to discuss these issues and challenges, so we can explore some of the challenges in OHS and explore the options available for managing them, whether through policy changes, or practical applications of OHS concepts and practices, or adoption of new technologies and approaches.

There will also policy makers, researchers, practitioners and others involved in the area of OHS to generate discussions, ideas and share experience. We will also discuss industries most vulnerable to OHS risk, and how they can high standards for health and safety in their respective fields; the conference offers an opportunity to discuss key developments, skills and training and lessons learned – all of which are needed for continuous, industry-wide improvement. It also offers an opportunity for leading practitioners in Health and Safety to come together to network with fellow industry peers and learn from and exchange ideas with those driving change and improvement throughout the sector.
