IOSH’s first conference in West Africa will take place on 22 January at the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria.
Shaping the Future of Occupational Safety and Health in Africa also celebrates the launch of IOSH’s Level 3 Health and Safety for Business qualification across the continent, and the No Time to Lose campaign tackling occupational cancer will be presented too.
This free event is being described as a tool to “shine a light” on risks such as asbestos which are prominent across working environments in Africa.
It will be a prime opportunity for business leaders to hear from IOSH Chief Executive Bev Messinger and Vice-President Kayode Fowode, as well as Director-General of Lagos State Safety Commission, Mr Lanre Mojola.
With just over a month to go, leading voices in the African OSH community are taking to social media harnessing the event as a spotlight to raise awareness of poor working conditions. This signals desire for change and improvements to safety and health at work.
Places are being snapped up quickly, but there are still some available via Eventbrite.
