Work, Stress and Health 2015: Sustainable Work, Sustainable Health, Sustainable Organizations
United States

Work, Stress and Health 2015: Sustainable Work, Sustainable Health, Sustainable Organizations

 May 6–9, 2015 Atlanta, Georgia

The eleventh International Conference on Occupational Stress and Health, "Work, Stress and Health 2015: Sustainable Work, Sustainable Health, Sustainable Organizations," will be held at the Westin Peachtree Plaza on May 6-9, 2015, with preconference workshops and opening events on May 6. This conference is convened by the American Psychological Association, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology.

Scope

The Work, Stress and Health Conference series addresses the ever-changing nature of work and the implications of these changes for the health, safety and well-being of workers. The conference covers numerous topics of interest to labor, management, practitioners and researchers, such as work and family issues, new forms of work organization, changing worker demographics, best practices for preventing stress and improving the health of workers and their organizations. Expert presentations and informal meetings with leading scientists and practitioners will provide an exciting forum for learning about the latest developments in occupational health psychology.

Sustainability, Occupational Safety and Health

This year, the conference will give special attention to the concept of "sustainability," and the integral role of occupational safety and health in sustainable economic growth. For enterprises, sustainability refers to the potential for maintenance of business success over the long term. For workers, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well-being. However, it has become increasingly clear that these two conditions are inextricably connected. In business, sustainability efforts have most commonly focused on environmental responsibility — at least historically so. But this is changing. Increasingly, corporate sustainability interests have expanded to include social responsibility, labor practices and occupational and environmental safety and health.

Underlying this development is increasing evidence, on one hand, of the economic threat of hazardous working conditions. The International Social Security Administration estimates that the economic burden of work-related injury alone is equivalent to 4 percent of the world Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and, in some countries, as high as 10 percent of the GDP. In the U.S., annual costs of occupational injuries and disease have been calculated at $250 billion. On the other hand, is mounting evidence of superior market performance of enterprises that nurture a culture of health and incorporate social concerns in their sustainability efforts. Thus, sustainable work and health are integral to organizational and economic sustainability.

1st International Energy Drinks Conference
Australia
11/06/2014

1st International Energy Drinks Conference

6-7th November 2014 Geelong, Victoria, Australia

Caffeinated energy drinks are the focus of a new and rapidly progressing public health conversation in a number of countries. With most developed nations experiencing an exponential growth in energy drink sales, there are emergent fears amongst many health advocates about the health and behavioural effects of energy drink use. A developing interdisciplinary group of independent, government-supported and industry-funded researchers are working to investigate the: health and behavioural outcomes of consumption; consumption by young people; consumption of energy drinks with alcohol; impacts of excessive consumption, and; public health and policy issues surrounding availability and product labelling. In this context, an international conference on Energy Drinks Research will be held in Geelong, Victoria, Australia on 6-7th November 2014. The conference will be an interdisciplinary meeting of international non-beverage industry affiliated researchers at the forefront of energy drinks research.

2nd International Congress on Cardiovascular Technologies (CARDIOTECHNIX 2014)
Italy
10/25/2014

2nd International Congress on Cardiovascular Technologies (CARDIOTECHNIX 2014)

25 - 26 October, 2014 Rome, Italy

CARDIOTECHNIX is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication

Technology has been essential for the advancement in cardiology diagnostic and treatment since the first accurate recording of the electrocardiogram and its development as a clinical tool in 1895, also the year of the discovery of X-rays by W.K.Röntgen, followed by ultrasound application for medical diagnosis by Dussik in 1941, and many other technologies. In the XXI century significant advances continue to be witnessed even more frequently and it seems evident that there is a very high potential of improving healthcare quality by combining medical knowledge in the area of cardiology with engineering technologies, especially those derived from communications, electronics and informatics.

This congress intends to be a meeting point of both academics and practitioners, in order to promote the exchange ideas and developed synergies.
