[Download the 2020 Symposium Brochure, which includes the Call for Speakers/Presenters, HERE.]

The goals of the annual WSO Symposium always include broadening collaboration among the various sectors of the safety field, building professional skills and knowledge, strengthening professionalism within the membership, broadening networking opportunities, and raising awareness of the value and impact of “Making Safety a Way of Life…Worldwide.”

You’ll connect with leaders, experts, elected officials, and changemakers of today and tomorrow, who are all committed to promoting the continuous advancement of safety and accident prevention technology and striving for a universal level of professionalism and competence among its members and all professionals and practitioners in the multi-discipline of occupational and environmental safety, health and accident prevention.

WSO Symposiums are known for a unique, friendly atmosphere, providing an opportunity for corporate managers and executives, SH&E professionals, advocates of safety and accident prevention, leaders of safety organizations, and WSO members from around the world to network and connect, exchange information, learn about new programs, and gain professional knowledge at a variety of breakout sessions. The WSO Symposium is always the gathering of friends and colleagues, a place to improve performance, and meet new people in the safety field.

WSO Global Safety Roundtable

What better way to round off Opening Day than to hear powerful stories from your colleagues about their own expeditions at work and in life that have led them or those around them to better health and wellness…where ideas are shared, assumptions are tested, and participants are asked to view a perspective through a different lens.

Suggestions, comments, resolutions, etc., of the Roundtable discussion are formatted for submission to governmental legislation and Missions of the United Nations (UN), International Labor Organization (ILO), World Health Organization (WHO), and similar rule-making groups on the local, national and international levels.

Symposium Format

The Symposium provides a unique opportunity for corporate managers and executives, safety, health & environmental professionals, advocates of safety and accident prevention, leaders of safety organizations and WSO members from around the world where the WSO is represented through the WSO International/ National Offices, WSO Chapters, and individual members.

Participation in the Symposium provides a forum for information exchange, networking, professional contact with other members, safety professionals, but most of all, learning about new programs and professional knowledge at sessions, panels and workshops presented during the Symposium.

As a part of the program, Symposium participants are invited to take part in the “WSO Global Safety Roundtable” discussion where the suggestions, comments, resolutions, etc., will be formatted for submission to governmental legislation and Missions of the United Nations (UN), International Labor Organization (ILO), World Health Organization (WHO), and similar rule-making groups on the local, national and international levels.
