This spring, London will host the first Global Healthy Workplace Awards and Summit to find the worlds healthiest workplaces those using the most innovative programs and practices to make the biggest impact on the health and well-being of employees and their surrounding communities.



The Summer School "Occupational health crossing borders" will take place in Munich from the 19th to the 30th of August 2013.


The summer school is targeted at occupational safety and health professionals. It provides information about occupational safety and health systems around the world with special focus on Europe. In addition, we will be focussing on Basic occupational health services (BOSH). In small groups, participants will develop cross-country projects in this field. The idea is that these projects will be carried out by the participants after the course.
