“Update on Silicosis Detection and Relief – Sharing Experiences”
29th June 2022
18.30 – 21.00 (Jakarta Time)

Please register at:

Workers are exposed to silica particles in several occupations which can cause silicosis. However, a large
number of cases of silicosis are undetected, undiagnosed or misdiagnosed due to lack of health surveillance
and detection systems. In this webinar, you will find updates on the surveillance, prevention and control of
silicosis that remain a challenge for occupational health professionals, governments and all other
institutions involved in worker health, safety and welfare.
