Student Event: Future Leaders of OSH

Alongside the main APOSHO 33 conference, we will also be hosting a separate student event, Future Leaders of OSH. The event will bring together university students from across the countries represented in APOSHO for a unique afternoon programme. The afternoon programme is designed to support career development and progression, and provide excellent networking opportunities, helping to shape the occupational safety and health leaders of tomorrow.

During this exclusive session, we will also present the Inspiring OSH Student Award. The award will provide a prestigious platform for the winner to present their work, and an opportunity to make a real impact in the field of safety and health. The closing date has now been extended to 24 September 2018.

This half day event will take place in the afternoon of 04 December, day 1 of the APOSHO 33 conference. The session will close with an evening cocktail event, where students will be able to meet and network with delegates from the main APOSHO 33 conference, including senior and established industry professionals.

Bookings are now open for The Future Leaders of OSH and the programme will be launched soon.
