Thank you for visiting the 38th International A+A Congress!

From 24 to 27 October 2023, stakeholders and decision-makers in occupational health and safety from industry, trade, administration, politics and science met at the 38th International A+A Congress.

Dr Christian Felten, Managing Director of Basi, commented: „We are delighted that the interesting and high-quality contributions from our speakers in the 46 sessions attracted so many interested listeners. Almost 3,000 guests were provided with a wide range of possible solutions for sustainable occupational health and safety, which are currently in high demand in practice, for example due to mental stress, mobile working and digitalisation in the workplace.“ According to Mr. Felten, the congress as the central German joint event for safety and health is also gaining European and international appeal thanks to the noticeable interest shown by guests from abroad.

The presentations of the lectures are available to interested visitors. Please send an e-mail to info@basi.de.
