The XXII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work will take place in Toronto, Canada, 4 to 7 October 2020. The Congress will be co-organized by the International Social Security Association (ISSA) with the International Labour Organization (ILO) and hosted by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).

Held every three years since 1955, the World Congress is a unique international forum that brings together approximately 3,000 safety and health experts, decision makers from the field of social security and the public sector as well as employers' and workers' representatives from around the world to exchange ideas, research and best practices on highly topical issues in the area of occupational safety and health.

The motto for the XXII World Congress is: “Prevention in the Connected Age: global solutions to achieve safe and healthy work for all”. During the Congress, the ISSA is going to organise Technical Sessions and Symposia on Vision Zero (prevention) and social security related topics.
