Track 1: Women Occupational Health
Identifying issues and problems in the occupational women health remains a challenge. Much of women's work remains anonymous, unpaid and uncounted such as in agriculture, food production and the marketing of home-made products and work in the home. Within the paid labor force, women are disproportionately focused in the informal sector, moreover the scope of industrial regulations, trade unions, insurance or even data collection. Women may undertake paid work at home, or part time or full time paid work with household work and the care of children, the sick and the elderly. They are inclined to move in and out of the paid labor force during distinct life stages; within the paid labor force they may have a variety of different jobs and occupations in succession.

Track 4: Occupational Hazards:
Hazardous waste sites pose a multitude of health and safety concerns, any one of which could result in serious injury or death. These hazards are a function of the nature of the site as well as a consequence of the work being performed. Several factors distinguish the hazardous waste site environment from other occupational situations involving hazardous substances. One important factor is the uncontrolled condition of the site. Even extremely hazardous substances do not endanger human health or safety if they are properly handled. However, improper control of these substances can result in a severe threat to site workers and to the general public. Another factor is the large variety and number of substances that may be present at a site. Any individual location may contain hundreds or even thousands of chemicals. Frequently, an accurate assessment of all chemical hazards is impossible due to the large number of substances and the potential interactions among the substances. In addition, the identity of the substances on site is frequently unknown, particularly in the initial stages of an investigation. The Project Team Leader will often be forced to select protective measures based on little or no information. Finally, workers are subject not only to the hazards of direct exposure, but also to dangers posed by the disorderly physical environment of hazardous waste sites and the stress of working in protective clothing.

Modern occupational safety and health legislation usually demands that a risk assessment be carried out prior to making an intervention. It should be kept in mind that risk management requires risk to be managed to a level which is as low as is reasonably practical.
The calculation of risk is based on the likelihood or probability of the harm being realized and the severity of the consequences. This can be expressed mathematically as a quantitative assessment (by assigning low, medium and high likelihood and severity with integers and multiplying them to obtain a risk factor), or qualitatively as a description of the circumstances by which the harm could arise.
The assessment should be recorded and reviewed periodically and whenever there is a significant change to work practices. The assessment should include practical recommendations to control the risk. Once recommended controls are implemented, the risk should be re-calculated to determine if it has been lowered to an acceptable level. Generally speaking, newly introduced controls should lower risk by one level, i.e., from high to medium or from medium to low.
· Identify the hazards
· Identify all affected by the hazard and how
· Evaluate the risk
· Identify and prioritize appropriate control measures
Track 6: Occupational health services
It is desirable that some sort of occupational health services be established in every country. This may be done either by laws or regulations, or by collective agreements, or as otherwise agreed upon by the employers and workers concerned, or in any other manner approved by the competent authority after consultation with the representative organizations of employers and workers concerned. The coverage of workers by occupational health services varies widely, ranging from 5-10 per cent at best in the developing world up to 90 per cent in industrialized countries, especially those in Western Europe. There is therefore a universal need to increase worker coverage throughout the world. Ideally, each country should progressively develop occupational health services for all workers, including those in the public sector and members of production cooperatives, in all branches of economic activity and in all enterprises. The occupational health services provided should be adequate and appropriate to the specific health risks of the enterprises. These services should also include the necessary measures to protect self-employed persons and informal sector operators. To that end, plans should be drawn up to affect such measures and to evaluate progress made towards their implementation.

The occupational safety and health status of the workforce is influenced by numerous variables; not least it’s changing analytical structure, the advancement of new technologies and a declination in the importance of economic sectors that initially dominated, such as industry and mining. This is bringing about transition not only in the numbers of jobs in every sector, but also the categories of jobs that are accessible. The workforce age profile is changing. New technologies are creating new league of employment.
Globalization implies that health threats that were once distant easily spread around the world in a short span. If these preserves the health of its workforce and manage its economic strength and its competitiveness, it needs to meet such challenges proactively. This Outlook provides an overview of the present and future patterns that are relevant to occupational health, the major workplace risks and their prevention.

Track 8: Human factors and ergonomics
Human factors and ergonomics (commonly referred to as HF&E), also known as comfort design, functional design, and systems, is the practice of designing products, systems, or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people who use them.
The field has seen some contributions from numerous disciplines, such as psychology, engineering, biomechanics, industrial design, physiology, and anthropometry. In essence, it is the study of designing equipment, devices and processes that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. The two terms "human factors" and "ergonomics" are essentially synonymous.
The International Ergonomics Association defines ergonomics or human factors as follows:
Ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.
HF&E is employed to fulfill the goals of occupational health and safety and productivity. It is relevant in the design of such things as safe furniture and easy-to-use interfaces to machines and equipment.
Human factors and ergonomics is concerned with the "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments. It takes account of the user's capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that tasks, functions, information and the environment suit each user.
To assess the fit between a person and the used technology, human factors specialists or ergonomists consider the job (activity) being done and the demands on the user; the equipment used (its size, shape, and how appropriate it is for the task), and the information used (how it is presented, accessed, and changed). Ergonomics draws on many disciplines in its study of humans and their environments, including anthropometry, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, industrial design, information design, kinesiology, physiology, cognitive psychology, industrial and organizational psychology, and space psychology.

· Space Psychology
· Health Effects of Alcohol
· Industrial and organizational Psychology
Track 9: Agriculture Health and Safety
Agriculture workers are often at risk of work-related injuries, lung disease, noise-induced hearing loss, skin disease, as well as certain cancers related to chemical use or prolonged sun exposure. On industrialized farms, injuries frequently involve the use of agricultural machinery. The most common cause of fatal agricultural injuries in the United States is tractor rollovers, which can be prevented by the use of roll over protection structures which limit the risk of injury in case a tractor rolls over. Pesticides and other chemicals used in farming can also be hazardous to worker health, and workers exposed to pesticides may experience illnesses or birth defects. As an industry in which families, including children, commonly work alongside their families, agriculture is a common source of occupational injuries and illnesses among younger workers. Common causes of fatal injuries among young farm worker include drowning, machinery and motor vehicle-related accidents.
The 2010 NHIS-OHS found elevated prevalence rates of several occupational exposures in the agriculture, forestry, and fishing sector which may negatively impact health. These workers often worked long hours. The prevalence rate of working more than 48 hours a week among workers employed in these industries was 37% and 24% worked more than 60 hours a week. Of all workers in these industries, 85% frequently worked outdoors compared to 25% of all U.S. workers. Additionally, 53% were frequently exposed to vapors, gas, dust, or fumes, compared to 25% of all U.S. workers.

The sustenance security testing business sector is anticipated to reach $15,040.7 million by 2019. In 2013, the business sector was overwhelmed by North America, trailed by Europe. The Asia-Pacific business sector is anticipated to develop at the most astounding CAGR amid the gauge period.
An incessant condition is a human wellbeing condition or infection that is tireless or generally durable in its belongings or a sickness that accompanies time. The term unending is normally connected when the course of the sickness goes on for over three months. Normal ceaseless ailments incorporate joint pain, asthma, tumor, COPD, diabetes and viral sicknesses, for example, hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS.
Sustenance security is an investigative control portraying taking care of, planning, and stockpiling of nourishment in ways that avert foodborne sickness. This incorporates various schedules that ought to be taken after to maintain a strategic distance from conceivably extreme wellbeing dangers. The tracks inside of this line of believed are wellbeing in the middle of industry and the business and afterward between the business sector and the shopper. In considering industry to market rehearses, nourishment wellbeing contemplations incorporate the roots of sustenance including the works on identifying with sustenance naming, nourishment cleanliness, nourishment added substances and pesticide deposits, and in addition strategies on biotechnology and sustenance and rules for the administration of administrative import and fare review and certificate frameworks for nourishments.
An aliment safety risk analysis is essential not only to engender or manufacture high quality goods and products to ascertain safety and forfend public health, but withal to comply with international and national standards and market regulations. With risk analyses victuals safety systems can be fortified and victuals-borne illnesses can be reduced. Victuals safety risk analyses fixate on major safety concerns in manufacturing premises—not every safety issue requires a formal risk analysis. Sometimes, especially for involute or controversial analyses, customary staff is fortified by independent consultants. This session includes temporomandibular problem, Rheumatoid arthritis, Spinal stenosis, Food safety- Standards & regulations, Food quality control and safety measures- Consumer labeling, Food safety, Risk assessment and management, Food toxicology and microbiology-Spoilage prevention and control and Novel methods for the evaluation of food adulteration and authenticity.
