International SOS Foundation Announces the ‘Singapore World Summit’ on Work Related Travel Safety, Health and Security and its Resulting Declaration. Official signing of the declaration will take place at the Summit meeting at the opening of the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in Singapore on 3 September 2017.
“Prevention is crucial, but when prevention is not possible, preparedness and speed are often a key factor in protecting the workforce. The Singapore Declaration will also call on leaders to recognise the necessity of the ability to respond rapidly and effectively to incidents involving mobile workers.”
International SOS Foundation is seeking participation from leaders of government ministries and agencies, intergovernmental organisations, social security organisations, employers’ and workers’ organisations, business leaders and those involved in travel, health and security for organisations of all sizes, NGO’s, safety and health organisations and institutions, senior occupational health and safety practitioners as well as institutions of higher learning and others.
Delegates registered to the Summit, prior to 15 August 2017, will also have the opportunity to see and provide comments on the initial draft of the Declaration, return it to the secretariat and after legal review have the opportunity to see the final draft of the Declaration before the Summit and the signing ceremony.
