Dear Industry Leaders,

We are delighted to announce the 3rd BOHS Worker Health Protection Conference (WHPC 2016) in the Middle East, which will be held at Le Royal Meridien, Abu Dhabi, UAE on 25 – 28 September 2016.

Last year’s WHPC 2015 was a tremendous success with more than 125 international delegates representing over 70 organisations including government authorities, regulators, key industry players, analysts and media attending the event. The success of the last two editions of WHPC and the enthusiasm of our delegates and supporters has encouraged us to launch an even bigger and better conference in 2016.

With a packed two days of the main conference along with additional two days of certified professional development courses and an exhibition that showcases the latest products, solutions and innovations, WHPC 2016 will see critical discussions and debates providing practical solutions to tackle the key challenges in occupational ill health and disease, and improve worker health in the region.

With an esteemed panel of high-profile international speakers, the sessions at WHPC 2016 are designed to provide in-depth insights to the key themes which are relevant to todays’ workforce in the region. The panel discussions and presentations will cover a variety of topics on occupational health and hygiene including:

  • Regulatory and Legislative Policies
  • Heat Stress Management
  • Ergonomics and Workplace Design
  • Noise and Vibration Control
  • Mental Health and Worker Resilience
  • Chemical Hazards … and more

We hope you will join us at WHPC 2016 as we work together to raise awareness of the huge burden of occupational disease upon workers, industries and nations; and at the same time highlight the practical preventative solutions provided by occupational hygiene and health.

Kind regards,
