Since the Inaugural Roundtable in 1995, the World Safety Organization (WSO) Global Safety Roundtable has become a regular event and an international safety "Think Tank", drawing on international representation from the WSO's annual educational meetings. The WSO Global Safety Roundtable X 2008 was convened on the 11th of June 2008 to assist the WSO in its motto to Make Safety a Way of Life Worldwide as well as to assist in the formulation of specific proposals and resolutions for the United Nations (UN) and its agencies. It was convened during the WSO 21st International Environmental and Occupational Safety and Health Professional Development Conference, Tuscany Suites and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States of America. It sought to build on the resolutions presented at the previous Global Safety Roundtables. Eleven representatives from six countries participated. The major issues arising from the "Think Tank" discussion included: better promotion of the WSO through its conferences and through media releases and related activities, including improved presentation of conferences. Initial areas to be targeted included homelessness secondary to natural disasters, environmental safety and climate change, workers' safety, transportation safety and protection of children and seniors in the workplace. As far as possible, it was recommended that the WSO work through existing global safety campaigns.
