The XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work 2017 will be held from 3 to 6 September, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands. This year, with the motto “A Global Vision of Prevention”, 4,000 international and local occupational safety and health (OSH) delegates will gather to share their OSH experience, knowledge and best practices.

Why is it important to engage youths in the prevention dialogue?

Young workers today are the future leaders of our economies, and their safety and well-being will shape the world of tomorrow. However, they are also 40% more likely than older workers to suffer occupational injuries due to:

  • Lack of skills, experience and training;
  • Inadequate supervision;
  • Limited knowledge of OSH hazards and risks; and/or
  • Lack of understanding of their rights.

The SafeYouth@Work Congress, organised alongside World Congress 2017, seeks to highlight the critical need for awareness of safety and health issues for youth in the workplace, by bringing their voice to the World Congress. More than 200 Youth Champions from around the world, aged 18–24 will be participating in the SafeYouth@Work Congress.

SafeYouth@Work Dialogue

The SafeYouth@Work Dialogue on young worker OSH vulnerability will be a key highlight of the World Congress 2017 programme. In a plenary session before 1,000 delegates, the Dialogue will provide a platform for cross-generational exchange and collaboration among OSH experts, policymakers, employer and worker representatives and young professionals on the subject of "OSH for Youth".

Through the Dialogue and other youth-centred interventions at the Congress, the ILO aims to foster youth leadership on OSH issues, and promote their active engagement to improve OSH conditions for young workers.

The SafeYouth@Work Dialogue will take place at the World Congress on Tuesday, 5 September from 13.30 – 15:30.
