International Conference on Road Safety at Work

18 August 2008

February 16-18, 2009, Washington, DC

Road traffic crashes are a leading cause of workplace death, injury, and disability in many countries around the world. Workers, families, businesses, and society all suffer the consequences of workplace crashes. Because rapid motorization and economic development go hand in hand, workers in the developing world are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the risk of road traffic crashes.

The International Conference on Road Safety at Work, organized by the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and co-sponsors, will provide a forum for business and professionals to plan to meet the need.

On-line registration and further information will be available shortly here.
