Aim of special session New advances in moving research into practice has greatly assisted in delivering our OSH information and making an impact. Increasingly OSH researchers and their organisations must make a concerted effort to better translate the findings of their research to their stakeholders, partners, workers, employers and especially to the general public to assist in making better health decisions. This session will address the key factors and relevant case studies that help us understand the factors that improve systemic planning as well as what strategies assist communicating with hard to reach audiences, the general public, key organisations, health professionals, policy makers and assess the impact and relevance of the information and the messages we are delivering. Sustainability of the activities will be addressed.
