Occupational Safety and Health

86 organisations and institutions working together to improve safety and health at work. That’s Basi – the Federal Association for Occupational Safety and Health. The A+A Congress, coordinated by Basi, is one of the most important events on the latest OSH topics in Germany and worldwide.

International A+A Congress 2021

At the 37th Congress for Occupational Safety and Health from 26–29 October 2021, stakeholders and decision-makers in occupational safety and health from industry, trade, administration, politics and science came together. Dr. Christian Felten, Managing Director of Basi, was satisfied with the result: “We are very happy that we could welcome our guests and speakers to a face-to-face congress that deserves its name: A four-digit number of participants (about 1500) experienced a variety of high-quality contributions at the 37th A+A congress and were finally able to interact with each other on site. Within the context of current pandemic conditions, we focused on essential topics. Very important were classic sectors such as exposure to carcinogenic hazardous substances or musculoskeletal disorders caused by work. Visitor interest also focused on topics such as safe and healthy work along international supply chains, New Work, mobile working and problems caused by digitalisation in the workplace.

Information on how to download the presentations will follow as soon as possible.
The 38th A+A Congress will take place from October 24 to 27, 2023.
