COH 2022 - Occupational Safety and Health Challenges in the Post-Pandemic Future of Work
The Nordic Future of Work and OSH group organised a special session on 'Occupational Safety and Health Challenges in the Post-Pandemic Future of Work' during the International Congress on Occupational Health (ICOH) 2022.
The Nordic Future of Work and OSH Group was established at ICOH Dublin 2018 to conduct a scoping review of challenges in the future of work and propose practical recommendations to address them. During this year's ICOH Congress, the group organised a special session to present the main results from their ongoing work.
An experienced panel of speakers from ICOH, the Nordic countries, the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the World Health Organisation (WHO), and EU-OSHA, shared their knowledge on the many challenges of the future of work during the session.
Perspectives on the future of occupational safety and health (OSH) and the 'New Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work 2021-2027' were highlighted in EU OSHA's intervention, held by our Interim Executive Director William Cockburn.
Digital edition a success
The digital edition of the ICOH International Congress ICOH 2022 was successfully held with the participation of more than 1,400 delegates from 98 countries.
- Even if very different from the traditional face-to-face congress organized every three years, the digital format has secured the exchange and sharing of state-of-the-art information, knowledge, and experience within the ICOH network and beyond. 12 Keynote and Plenary sessions, 23 Semi-Plenary sessions, 146 oral communications, 56 special sessions and 581 e-posters enriched the scientific program, said the event organizer in a statement.
From March 4, 2022 to June 30, 2022 all recorded sessions will be accessible to the congress participants at https://ondemand.icoh2022.net
The upskilling of maintenance workers should be one of the most important and ongoing functions of any facilities management.
Reliable Monitoring of Pressurised Components Creep-fatigue life prediction in flexible plant operation
Metal components in chemical plants are often exposed to high temperatures or cyclic pressure and temperature loads, making them increasingly vulnerable to material fatigue. Consequently, the longer the service life of a component, the higher the risk of its failure and of production losses. What is needed, therefore, is a method for quick and realistic analysis of the component condition to enable timely intervention and optimum planning of maintenance measures to be effected.
