The German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) will be hosting the "Safe and healthy university" conference for the third time. The key topic is the influence of new technologies upon work processes in universities and research establishments. Conference delegates will discuss safety and health as a quality feature in teaching and research.
During the 2nd Strategy Conference on Occupational Health and Safety in February 2011 the participants identified five core topics (“pillars”) to serve as a common frame of reference for implementing health and safety strategies. At the 3rd Strategy Conference we will move beyond these pillars: we will provide a net-work for stakeholders from different policy areas to reflect on and to discuss the most relevant core topics and we will identify where their various views intersect.
The university is a place of teaching and learning, researching and experimenting. People with very different tasks and areas of expertise work under the same roof: professors, students, research assistants, administrative and technical staff. The 2nd university conference in Dresden wants to contribute to a condition where all the people named above can carry out their various tasks without hazards and where safety and health are recognised as a quality feature of a university.
A key outcome of the 1st Strategy Conference in January 2009 was the call for better coordination between international and national strategies on safety and health at work. The 2nd Strategy Conference will offer international experts and high-level policymakers the opportunity to explore how the various international strategies can be better linked with one another and how implementation at the national level can be better coordinated. The common goal of the conference organisers is to promote a worldwide prevention culture.
