  • "Über Ländergrenzen hinweg haben kleine und mittlere Unternehmen vor allem eine Erwartung an den Arbeitsschutz: Prävention muss einfach, praxisnah und an den Bedürfnissen vor Ort ausgerichtet sein. Safety-work erfüllt mit seinen Checklisten und Beispielen guter Praxis genau diesen Anspruch."

    Dr. Walter Eichendorf, stv. Hauptgeschäftsführer der
    Deutschen Gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung

  • “For OSH specialists, SMEs are difficult to reach. These companies require support in their approach and must address prevention within the framework of their professional practice. To this end, INRS offers a series of simple, customised tools enabling SMEs to implement an occupational risk prevention strategy in their company on their own.  The “Safety & Work” website contributes to sharing tools developed in different countries and disseminating them to the greatest possible number of SMEs.”

    Stéphane Pimbert, Director general, INRS

  • "Die Safety & Work-Website bietet genau das, was kleine und mittelständische Unternehmen benötigen: Eine schnelle, umfassende und vor allem praxistaugliche Informationsplattform rund um das Thema Arbeitssicherheit und Gesundheit. Die Vermeidung von Unfällen und die Erhaltung der Gesundheit gehören zu den Kernaufgaben der BGN. Safety & Work ist ein wichtiges Medium, mit dem wir unsere Zielgruppe direkt erreichen."

  • « La cultura è la base per ogni crescita professionale; sin da quando  ho assunto l’incarico di Presidente dell'ente bilaterale del turismo di Venezia  mi sono impegnato a diffondere un po' alla volta sempre più i corsi: l’ informatica, l'inglese, la cucina,la  capacità di comunicazione, per arrivare di recente agli aspetti della psicologia, d’ importanza fondamentale Mi sono sempre posto l'obiettivo di far innamorare di questa magnifica parola che è la cultura  i lavoratori del turismo e le persone che, a vario titolo, lavorano con il nostro ente»

    Luigi Puntar, Presidente EBT area veneziana

  • «Dans notre environnement hyper connecté, l’accès à l’information est complexe. Le thème de la Santé et de la Sécurité au Travail est abordé par une multitude de sites. Comment accéder à des informations validées qui font référence en termes de S&ST ? Dans chaque pays, des organismes (tels l’INRS et les Carsat en France) proposent un accès à une information de qualité. Les enjeux des risques professionnels ne sauraient toutefois se limiter aux frontières d’un pays, aux barrières d’une langue. C’est en cela que l’offre Internet « » est inhabituelle en donnant accès à des outils et démarches conçus et mis en œuvre dans d’autres pays, avec des approches souvent différentes. Vous y trouverez des façons originales de dynamiser vos actions de prévention.»

    Georges Lischetti, ingénieur conseil régional, Carsat Alsace-Moselle

Example of the month

Quiz – Campaign „Keep up!“ - Safety on ladders and treads

Falling from heights (whether it is from a ladder or any treads) often results in severe accidents. This does not only involve serious injuries, but there is a range from temporary to permanent disability, possibly with a longer absence from work, or even casualties. One main focus hence should be the conduct and manner of working of the staff members. As a crucial communication medium our Quiz – Campaign „Keep up!” can be used for training purposes by depicting different situations in relation with ladders.
