Since 1990 the International Media Festival for Prevention has been an integral part of the World Congress on Safety & Health at Work. It is jointly coordinated by the ISSA Electricity and Information Sections. The Media Festival offers an overview of films and multimedia productions about safety and health at work from all over the world and provides an opportunity for participants to present their products to a major group of influential international safety and health professionals. The Media Festival seeks to demonstrate that successful prevention work requires good communication, to which outstanding media can contribute significantly.
