More than 400 delegates from over 40 countries are expected to attend the four-day scientific exchange and debate at the Allstream Centre in Toronto.

According to Dr Cameron Mustard (pictured below) who is president and senior scientist of the Institute for Work & Health (IWH), every three years since 1992, PREMUS has gathered together scientists, students, practitioners in occupational health and safety, epidemiologists, ergonomists, industrial engineers, clinicians and policy-makers, with the goal of promoting multidisciplinary research and the translation of that research into applicable use.

“Following a successful eight conference at Busan, Korea, we will offer an exciting and provocative programme of keynote presentations and symposium sessions. The IWH has had a longstanding focus on work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), and we are proud to continue PREMUS’s 20-year history as an international platform for the exchange of knowledge and expertise in MSD research and intervention practice related to the prevention of work-related MSDs,” he added.
