2nd International OHS Executive Meeting

At the Kameha Grand Bonn, Am Bonner Bogen 1, 53227 Bonn, Germany

About the 2nd International OHS Executive Meeting

As globalisation continues a pace, the role of international health and safety is increasing with it. But the focus has broadened over time and is now no longer merely restricted to ensuring health-friendly, safe workplaces. Today’s concept of occupational health and safety also includes prevention of mental stress, work process design in line with health and age-related requirements, intercultural matters and flexible, needs-led work models that enhance performance.

It is against this backdrop that decision makers will be meeting in Bonn for the 2nd International OHS Executive Meeting on 18 and 19 September 2014 to share knowledge and report on the lessons they have learned. The programme comprises expert presentations and thought-provoking panel discussions as well as a conference dinner on 18 September with plenty of opportunity to meet and network with other delegates. The meeting will be an ideal forum for you to talk to delegates from around the world about strategies, trends and best practice.

We look forward to seeing you in Bonn!

Dr Reinhold Bartl studied psychology and began working as a consultant, coach and professional speaker in 1994. He is a skill enhancement instructor in the areas of communication, leadership and HR development for profit and non-profit organisations. Despite the multi-faceted nature of psychology (a science that has fascinated him for decades), the questions he asks himself and others are always similar in nature. They centre around how people can find and grasp the freedom they need in order to incorporate the things that really interest and motivate them into their professional and private lives in a fulfilling manner?
