MEDICHEM 2016 is a unique information and communication platform for occupational health professionals and a forum of exchange with colleagues from toxicology, psychology, ecology and other disciplines.

The theme of the congress is "Risk Assessment at the workplace: concepts for emerging issues."

Speakers from academia and industry will review the topics form psycho-social factors at work, industrial hygiene, remediation projects and how they relate to the work of an occupational physician in the chemical industry. A section on free communications will allow members of MEDICHEM to present and share their ideas, learnings or successes with the MEDICHEM community.

We are looking forward seeing many of you in this important and exciting meeting.

With best regards
