AFRICA OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES CONFERENCE @ Emperors Palace Convention Centre

According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), more than 2.3 million workers die every year, thanks to occupational accidents or work-related diseases. To put this number in perspective, across the world 167,000 people died in armed conflicts in 2015, according to the latest edition of the IISS Armed Conflict Survey. People have more chances of survival in warzones than they do in the places that are supposed to provide them with a livelihood. In addition to this astounding number, each year 313 million accidents occur on the job resulting in extended absences from work.
In South Africa, for instance, mining, fire-fighting, emergency response (paramedics), policing and construction are among the leading causes of death, with hundreds dying while a work. Mining deaths may have fallen from 90 to 81 between 2017 and 2018, but the issue remains that concerted efforts should be made to avoid occupational deaths and illnesses.
The advent one new technology has brought wholly new industries, careers and professions, which have come with their own workplace hazards. Fortunately, new technology has also done well to bring solutions to some eternal questions on how to keep occupational safety standards high within organisations. From wearables, smart personal protective equipment to mobile devices, safety leaders are leveraging mobility and Internet of Things technologies to collect data on how their employees are working and to analyse this it to improve safety in the workplace. Technological research has also looked at how traditional industrial robots, as well as emerging robotic technologies, such as collaborative robots, wearable robotics or powered exoskeletons, remotely controlled or autonomous vehicles and drones, and future robots using advanced artificial intelligence can help in improving occupational safety and health.
The Africa Occupational Safety and Health Technologies Conference will discuss the latest attempts to identify, analyse, control and eradicate workplace hazards. Speakers will give insights and background in safety, health and environmental topics, as well updates in occupational regulations, and how organisations approach safety and health issues in their work premises. To be held at the Emperors Palace Convention Centre on the 28th until the 30th of August 2019, the event will also look at safety and health technologies, inspections and audits, safety controls, and compliance with the occupational safety and health standards.

• To explore new technologies to improve occupational safety
