The American Psychological Association (APA), in collaboration with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology (SOHP), convened the eighth international conference on occupational stress and health, Work, Stress, and Health 2009: Global Concerns and Approaches, at the Caribe Hilton Hotel, November 5-8, 2009, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Pre-conference workshops were held November 5, 2009. This was the eighth time APA, NIOSH, and SOHP, this time along with the University of Puerto Rico, joined together to convene an international conference on occupational stress and health. The first workplace stress and health conference, Work and Wellbeing: An Agenda for the 90s, was held in November 1990 and attracted about 300 attendees. The widespread interest and need for further information evident at this conference convinced APA and NIOSH to continue the work and to convene the second conference, Stress in the 90s: A Changing Workforce in a Changing Workplace, in November 1992. It attracted approximately 700 individuals from nearly 2 dozen countries. The growing agenda around occupational stress and health evident from the second conference led APA and NIOSH to convene the third conference, Work, Stress, and Health '95: Creating Healthier Workplaces, in September 1995. Over 850 people attended from 20 countries. A fourth conference, Work, Stress, and Health 99: Organization of Work in a Global Economy was held March 11-13, 1999, at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland, with approximately 600 participants from 25 countries attending. The fifth conference, Work, Stress, and Health: New Challenges in a Changing Workplace, was held March 20-22, 2003, at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, with attendance of over 650 participants from 28 countries around the world. The sixth conference, Work, Stress, and Health 2008: Making a Difference in the Workplace, was held March 2-4, 2006, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Miami, Florida, with attendance of nearly 700 from 30 countries. The most recent seventh conference, Work, Stress, and Health 2006: Healthy and Safe Work Through Research, Practice, and Partnerships, was held March 6-8, 2008, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. Attendance for this most recent conference was nearly 750 and attracted participants from 32 countries.
