Welcome to Ystad, Sweden and the 2012 Nordic Meeting We are delighted to welcome you to the 2012 Nordic Meeting on Agricultural Occupational Health and Safety which is held at Ystad Saltjöbaden, Ystad, in the very south of Sweden. This Nordic meeting is organized every second year in one of the Nordic countries and this year it is hosted by the Swedish Committee on Working Environment in Agriculture and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Alnarp. The theme of the meeting this year is “Health and Safety in Agriculture – Nordic and world-wide perspectives” (with a focus on the modern type of agriculture) – to underline the importance of working together across the borders of organizations, authorities, countries and continents. We all need to collaborate and learn from each other to improve and further develop the working conditions in agriculture and close-related sectors.
