Your topics all have a place at the
38th Congress on Occupational Safety and Health of the A+A 2023

Is safety and health at work the topic of your profession, for example in companies, the accident insurance system, public authorities, the research community, or national and international organizations? Have you produced interesting ideas, research results, concepts, practical solutions or means of implementing legal provisions for important OSH topics – and would like to present them? Are you a specialist in training in safe working practices? Are you a decision-maker in business and politics, or a researcher, and are perhaps thinking about strategies for the future of safe and healthy work in the era of digital transformation and pandemics? Do you advise companies on safety and health at work? Or do you represent an industrial interest group, national or international industry association or trade union, or self-governing NGO?

From 24 to 27 October 2023, the full breadth of experts and decision-makers from industry, the trades, public administration, government, the research community and the employers‘ and employees‘ representative bodies will meet at the A+A in Düsseldorf: one of the world’s largest events for sustainable occupational safety and health at work, and one of the world’s largest exhibitions of workplace safety and health products and congress events on the subject. The A+A comprises the 38th International Congress on Occupational Safety and Health, the Safety + Health Meeting Point (TPSG), and the A+A trade fair with over a thousand exhibitors and numerous innovative products relating to safety and health at work. Selected events will also be accessible digitally.

The call for participation for the 38th A+A Congress 2023 is now online.

The upcoming A+A Congress has opened its „gates“. Although we are still some months away from welcoming you personally in Düsseldorf, we are already looking forward to your contributions, presentations, ideas for workshops and posters.

Please find attached our „Call for Participation“ brochure, which takes a closer look at the core topics of the congress.

Feel free to forward the brochure to other potential interested parties. You are also welcome to include the link to our website at on your own website, or share it through your social media channels.

The theme of the congress will be: Sustainable occupational safety and health – today.think.further.

We would like to enlist you and your expertise in order to provide answers at the A+A Congress to how prevention can adapt, sustainably, to the current circumstances. We are also interested in finding ways of working together to integrate occupational safety and health sustainably as a constant factor in our day-to-day work.

As Hubertus Heil, Germany’s Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, says in his welcoming address, there is no going back after the last two years of the coronavirus pandemic. Like many other things, occupational safety and health must be constantly rethought and adjusted.

We are therefore calling on you to participate and to contribute your experience and ideas to the upcoming congress.

Get involved, help shape one of the world’s most important occupational safety and health events, and share your insights and knowledge with others.

We look forward to receiving your contribution. You can access the submission portal directly on our website.

The Basi team is available at any time to answer any questions you may have.
