Important Update March 5:
We are sorry to confirm that the EPROH symposium has been cancelled.
This two days workshop has been cancelled due to the constraints related to CoVid-19, as some countries already set up travel restrictions, that the epidemic is growing, and that OH practitioners will be busy at taking care of the workers in their environment, and will not go at risk to a meeting.
In parallel, the JAMU conference that took place at the same time on the same premises is postponed to Septembre 14 and 15.
Emails have been sent to all participants to inform on the cancellation and on the reimbursement.

EPROH scientific committee (emergency preparedness and response in occupational health) was created at the ICOH Congress in 2015. It aims at establishing a network for occupational practitioners interested in developing research, teaching, training and practicing in emergency response in workplaces.
Why EPROH ? A close cooperation between emergency and occupational specialists will help improving emergency care in workplaces and reducing the gap between knowledge and action. A position statement paper on emergency preparedness and response in occupational health has been published so far (Download position statement here). The first symposium during the Triennium 2015-2018 has been held in 2016 in Vienna, on Sunday October 2 as a joint session with the European Society of Emergency Medicine at EUSEM conference (http://www.eusemcongress.org/en/). EPROH met again at the ICOH congress in DUBLIN 2018.
