The International Commission on Occupational Health Conference 2018 took place from April 29th to May 4th 2018, in Dublin, Ireland. WIEGO's Senior Advisor Francie Lund attended the event.

The theme of this edition of the triannual conference is “Occupational Health and Wellbeing: Linking Research to practice”. The main goal is to contribute to academic development by sharing state-of-the-art research, knowledge, and experience in the OHS field.

Francie Lund will be presenting the paper “Bringing OHS closer to the changing world of work: research, advocacy and intervention with informal workers in seven countries”, a five-year, seven-country study which sought to understand the growing gap between what OHS conventionally provides and what informal workers need or find useful for the improvement of their working conditions and well-being.
