This year, VPPPA is a supporter of the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work, taking place in Singapore. The World Congress is the largest international event that focuses on workplace safety and health. 

Since 1955, the triennial World Congress has provided a platform for the exchange of knowledge, practices and perspectives for all policy makers, occupational safety and health practitioners, business leaders, union representatives, social partners and everyone with an interest in workplace safety and health. The World Congress 2017 is jointly organized by the International Labour Organization, International Social Security Association and the Ministry of Manpower, Singapore. It helps to advance the global agenda for workplace safety and health and typically attracts over 3,000-4,000 international delegates.

The motto of the XXI World Congress 2017 is "A Global Vision of Prevention" and three main topics will be discussed:
-Vision Zero - From Vision to Reality
