The focus of the 37th A+A Congress focuses on the sustainable occupational safety of the future. The thematic orientation follows the prevention culture of VISION ZERO. It reads: If measures are coordinated, it is possible to completely avoid serious accidents at work and occupational diseases – or to drastically reduce their consequences. Experts from occupational safety provide answers to key questions: What lessons has the pandemic brought with it and how are they further developed? How does the digitization of work affect health and safety? The specialists deal with mask confusion, collaborating robot and assistance systems as well as concepts for enforcing safety and health within global supply chains. In addition, the goals of the Joint German Occupational Safety Strategy (GDA) with its current focus on good work organization for musculoskeletal stress and the safe handling of carcinogenic hazardous substances remain a central component.
Attendance at the event can be recognized as further training for occupational safety specialists and other company actors – thanks to the multitude of topics and the technical depth in their presentation.
