Human health is a valuable asset. To ensure German employees remain healthy at work, the German social accident insurance institutions support companies and insured individuals using all appropriate means.
Objectives, target groups, effectiveness and profitability all play a key role in the selection of suitable prevention tools. The achievement of prevention objectives also involves the organization of prevention campaigns and projects on special OSH topics.
The DGUV uses a variety of events to disseminate information on the latest developments in the field of OSH and provide a platform for the exchange of information between OSH stakeholders.
