Occupational Health and Safety Forum

Quick facts

The Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Forum is a UN-system-wide forum aiming at supporting agency heads fulfilling their obligations in line with the accountability framework for staff health, safety and wellbeing in a manner which reflects the risks and the contexts in which their organizations work.

The OHS Forum was established by the High Level Management Committee (HLCM) in October 2019 following the recommendation of the CEB Cross-Functional Task Force on Duty of Care “to establish an Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Forum, led by WHO, to serve as a multidisciplinary interagency technical body […]” (CEB/2019/5).
