Biological Risks Conference
Nancy, 5 to 7 June 2019
INRS will be organising and hosting its next scientific conference on Biological Risks with the support of the Partnership for European Research in Occupational Safety and Health (PEROSH).
Abstract submission is officially open until 30 September 2018.
This conference is the sixth in a series of conferences organised by INRS on occupational safety and health research. The objectives are:
- to review knowledge about the risks related to worker exposure to biological agents
- to report on the strategies for assessing and preventing those risks.
The conference will address risks related to exposure to all types of biological agents (bacteria, fungi, viruses, microbial compounds, etc.), the routes of exposure (contact, injury, inhalation, etc.) and the health effects (infections, allergies, etc.). It will also cover the prevention measures adapted to work situations in different sectors (health care sector, waste treatment and sanitation, agrifood sector, jobs in contact with animals, biotechnologies, etc.).
Researchers, experts, OSH practitioners, physicians concerned by biological risks in the field of occupational safety and health, will be interested in this multi-disciplinary scientific conference.
