My name is Cyrene Waern and I’m the senior officer at LO responsible for occupational health and safety.

As the International Workers’ Memorial Day this year is commemorated the same day as ILO celebrates 100th anniversary we have arranged a conference on the subject of: ILO – work environment yesterday, today and tomorrow [24-26 April] https://www.av.se/om-oss/kalendarium/ilo-arbetsmiljoarbetet-i-gar-i-dag-och-i-morgon/
