The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is delighted to welcome you at its Healthy Workplaces Summit 2019 on 12 and 13 November 2019 in Bilbao.

The conference will start on 12 November in the early afternoon and following the opening session there will be a special ceremony for the hand-over of the Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards 2018-19. The first day of the conference will then close with four parallel sessions, dedicated to:

  1. Carcinogens at work
  2. Good practices and interventions
  3. Sustainable management and substitution of dangerous substances in production processes
  4. Main future challenges for effective prevention.

In the evening, a Networking Cocktail will be organised, where you are cordially invited to celebrate with us in a more relaxed atmosphere the successful closing of the Campaign. 

On the second day, there will be a panel discussion on lessons from the past for the future regarding the management of dangerous substances. Finally, at the end of the conference the Agency will also give a preview of the forthcoming EU-OSHA Campaign 2020-22 ‘Healthy workplaces lighten the load’.
