In the age of globalization, cross-border issues are gaining importance for statutory accident insurance systems. The DGUV as the umbrella organization of German accident insurance institutions is therefore increasingly involved in international affairs. At the centre of our work are all matters relating to the temporary or long-term relocation of employees to other countries, for example employees being posted abroad or changes in residence.
However, the DGUV´s international activities extend well beyond this. Together with international social protection- and OSH-organizations and with accident insurances in numerous countries, it promotes the exchange of experience and good practices on an international level and the establishment of common standards. The objective is the improvement of social security and occupational safety and health – both in Germany and abroad.
