The Seminar was hosted by the Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation (SSHFC) in collaboration with the ISSA Technical Commission on Insurance against Employment Accidents and Occupational Diseases.

The Seminar was aimed particularly at board members, chief executives, chief operations officers, experts and technical specialists in the prevention and the handling of occupational accidents and diseases from ISSA member organizations.

The Seminar sessions focussed on the following topics:

  1. Prevention of work-related accidents, including high-risk sectors such as agriculture, construction and mining.
  2. The list of occupational diseases in African countries.
  3. Improving social protection performance in Africa.
  4. Mainstreaming social security activities in the informal sector to minimize workplace accidents.
