Welcome to the official website of the 19th International Conference "Man and Working Environment". This year, the main topic of the Conference is Оccupational and Environmental Safety Engineering & Management (OESEM). OESEM International Conference is organized by the Faculty of Occupational Safety in Nis, Serbia, and will be held online on 24-25th November 2022. This Conference should serve as an ideal platform for researchers, scientists and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of occupational and environmental safety and management.
At no point in human history have society faced such a variety of risks and hazards in the working and living environment. A general increase in the volume of industrial production and novel manufacturing processes are rapidly changing the world. With that come changes in the frequency and intensity of risks and hazards, regardless of preventive measures taken and efforts to reduce them in integrated and innovative ways. On the other hand, the exponential development of Industry 4.0 and increasing automation and robotics have imposed the questions of safety 4.0, management of psychosocial risks and ethical debates in understanding the significance of human work. Moreover, demographic development and the explosion of consumer needs, global warming, climate change and other environmental issues started changing the living environment, inducing new hazards and progressive ecological anomalies. OESEM Conference aims to promote multidisciplinary research on various issues in occupational safety, environmental protection, environmental management and sustainable development. Another goal is to promote critical reflection and review of the existing practice, as well as new models and research approaches to “safety science” on the path to achieving sustainable development. Bearing in mind that Cluster 4 - Green Agenda and Sustainable Connectivity, which includes Chapter 27 - Environment and Climate Change, was opened at the Intergovernmental Conference on the accession of the Republic of Serbia to the European Union, this Conference is an ideal opportunity to discuss these topics on a deeper level. Special focus of the Conference will be to further redefine the priority directions of the Republic of Serbia and the possibilities of international cooperation within the context of Cluster 4, Chapter 27.
