The XXII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work is a global forum for advancing worker health protection. In 1955, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Social Security Association (ISSA) organized and held the first World Congress in Rome, Italy. It was the first time that prevention experts and decision-makers from around the world met at a major international congress. The World Congress continues to be the world’s largest event for the international occupational health and safety community – attracting over 3,500 delegates from more than 150 countries. Since inception, the World Congress opens its doors to the world every three years, each time hosted by a different country.
