About APOSHO

The Asia Pacific Occupational Safety and Health Organization (APOSHO) is an international body composed of non-profit professional Organisations devoted to the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases. Although full membership is given to nongovernmental Organisations in the Asia-Pacific region, any occupational safety and health Organisations, even in the regions other than the Asia-Pacific, can join the APOSHO as associate or affiliate members.

The first APOSHO Annual Conference took place in Singapore in August 1985 chaired by the chairperson of the National Safety Council of Australia. It was called initially “the Coordinating Committee of Asia-Pacific National Safety Councils” and later in 1992 renamed as now at the 8th Annual Conference. As of 2020, the members are from 39 organisations from 21 different countries or districts.
