The conference covered, inter alia, a range of occupational diseases related topics that have raised serious concern (e.g. asbestos, musculo-skeletal disorders, workplace related mental health issues).

It featured four breakout sessions on:

  • New/emerging workplace risks
  • Diagnostic criteria, data and statistics
  • "Old" workplace risks and related diseases
  • Exposure to chemicals in the workplace and cancer

The conference also dealt with the role of science, current approaches on occupational diseases administration, management and policy, including an analysis of some main national and international systems.
