    OSH regulatory aspects for changing climate conditions

    Occupational safety and health (OSH) regulations provide information and rules for enabling safe and health work in times of climate change. This post-workshop on regulation will revisit the main outcomes and results of the previous day and provide a possibility for a joint group discussion.

    Information about the different regulatory approaches in the participating countries will be discussed in the group in order to identify common challenges, existing solutions and approaches for future joint initiatives and cooperations. Participants will be able to present the situation in their nation in a short way.

Topics in our symposia

Symposium 1:
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.

Symposium 2:
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.

Symposium 3:
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.

Symposium 4:
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.
