With this call for participation, the Basi is now reaching out to all experts in the field of safety and health at work to play a proactive role in shaping the A+A Congress 2021 and developing it further in a sustainable way. Embedding of the congress in the trade fair also gives rise to numerous synergies from which all visitors benefit.

Familiar OSH topics and important innovations for consulting on safety and health measures and their implementation in companies will feature prominently. Space will also be devoted to inclusion and demographic change.

Strategic topics will also form a major part of the congress programme. These include the consequences of the digital transformation for occupational safety and health and, in particular, the challenges posed by the corona pandemic. This explicitly includes the shaping of safe and healthy arrangements for working from home, mobility, mobile work and basic work. Issues of strategic political relevance will also be addressed in the form of Work 4.0, the future of work, and topics relating to the definition of „good work“ and the enforcement of safety, health and sustainability within global supply chains. The concept of Vision Zero – a comprehensive prevention culture with the endeavour of completely eliminating fatal and serious occupational accidents and diseases – is to play an important role, as are the concerns of the Joint German Occupational Safety and Health Strategy (GDA).

Prevention of COVID-19

The further development of the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be predicted by anyone. Therefore, different scenarios are used as a basis when planning the A + A congress program 2021. During a face-to-face event in the CCD, all necessary health precautions, hygiene measures and distance rules are observed. This includes measures to manage the number of people and space as well as hygienic, technical and organizational measures that the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia has put in place for the operation of congresses and trade fairs.

If it becomes apparent that a face-to-face event will not be feasible in October 2021, the Basi office will review the submitted proposals and, in coordination with the senders, convert them into alternative digital event formats if possible.
