Invited are representatives of G7 occupational safety and health institutions as well as scientific and research organizations which deal with the occupational safety and health dimension of new climate change-related challenges.
Heat, UV radiation and solar exposure, extreme weather
Climate change increases workers’ exposure to heat and solar UV radiation. Consequences include lower performance, higher stress levels, and the danger of dehydration.
Spread of infectious and allergic diseases
Changes in precipitation and rising temperatures will lead to expanded distribution areas species and pathogens in areas where they are currently not or seldom observed.
Decarbonization, circular economy, alternative energy
Decarbonization is one of the most important factors to limit the effects of climate change. Renewable energies, reformed mobility, and circular economy pose new challenges.
Psychological effects of climate change: impacts and strategies
Changing environments, increasing heat, and unstable weather pose our mental health at risk. Feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression may increase as a result.
