About APOSHO 2023

Organised by

Asia Pacific Occupational Safety and Health Organization logo


The Malaysian Society for Occupational Safety and Health (MSOSH) is looking forward to hosting Annual General Meeting & Conference APOSHO 2023, which will bring delegates from over 40 countries to discuss Occupational Safety and Health issues in Asia Pacific.

The three-day event, themed ‘Moving Forward Beyond Compliance hopes to discuss issues and trends relevant to policy makers, OSH practitioners, and the future wellbeing of workers.

In addition to the Plenary Sessions, there will be focused sessions on current issues such as occupational health, mental health and wellbeing, digitization and its impact on OSH, industrial hygiene and several other areas related to OSH.

We hope to bring together thought experts and practitioners to discuss these issues and challenges, so we can explore some of the challenges in OSH and explore the options available for managing them, whether through policy changes, or practical applications of OSH concepts and practices, or adoption of new technologies and approaches.

We also hope to bring together policy makers, researchers, practitioners and others involved in the area of OSH to generate discussions, ideas and share experience.
