Who is APOSHO?
The Asia-Pacific Occupational Safety and Health Organisation (APOSHO) is an international body composed of non-profit professional organisations devoted to the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases.

It was called initially “the Coordinating Committee of Asia-Pacific National Safety Councils” and later in 1992 renamed as now at the 8th Annual Conference.
