A recent study by the German Social Accident Insurance produces surprising results. The Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance (IFA) has conducted a research project in which it recorded and interpreted detailed exposure data for the most diverse of tasks performed outdoors.
The risk of suffering an occupational accident in Germany fell once again last year, despite employment having continued to rise. 1.5% more hours were worked than in the previous year. At the same time, the number of reportable occupational accidents per million hours worked fell by almost 2%, to 14.
New forms of work call for new responses in order to protect employees at work. The German Social Accident Insurance Institutions are drawing attention to this on the occasion of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (28 April 2016) by issuing a new publication.
Last chance to register! The official registration deadline for the 4th International Strategy Conference on Safety and Health at Work is 06 March. From 21 to 24 March 2016 the ISC2016 will take a closer look at how work is changing and what this means for occupational safety and health.
The report which was first published in German in 2013 describes recommended procedure for the investigation of working environment.
