Industry Conference "Underestimated Hazard: Falling from Vehicles"

Our international industry conference "Underestimated Hazard: Falling from Vehicles" (21-22 Nov. 2022, Hamburg, Germany) is now open for registration. You are cordially invited to join us!

According to the accident statistics of the BG Verkehr, falls from height when using access steps and working platforms on vehicles or superstructures are among the most frequent occupational accidents. The sectors of freight transport and waste disposal are particularly affected. Here, serious injuries with long periods of absence - or even fatal accidents - occur regularly

What are the causes and how can the number of accidents be sustainably reduced in practice? These questions will be addressed at the industry conference "Underestimated Hazard: Falling from Vehicles" (21-22 Nov. 2022, BG Verkehr, Ottenser Hauptstr. 54, 22765 Hamburg, Germany). A fall can be the result of inattentiveness, but it can also be the result of missing, unsuitable or defective access steps, walkways, platforms, fall protection or hand holds on goods vehicles. This industry conference will focus on:

  • Workplaces on vehicles
  • Railings
  • Steps
  • Covering and uncovering of containers

Keynotes by renowned experts will launch the joint discussion of possible solutions for the prevention of falls from goods vehicles.

Have we caught your interest? Then you can register here free of charge by 21 October.

The ISSA Section on Prevention in Transportation is hosting the event together with its member BG Verkehr. Conference languages are German and English. Simultaneous translation will be provided.
