Online self-assessment

German occupational safety and health authorities, the accident insurance institutions and the federal government developed an innovative prevention offer for companies and facilities in the healthcare sector: an internet-based self-assessment tool. With the help of an online questionnaire facilities can quickly and efficiently identify risks and threats to the safety and health of their employees. To each question and topic of the questionnaire they directly receive a recommendation of adequate prevention measures, valuable information and support. After filling in the questionaire, companies can immediately compare their results with the average results of all participants. Thus the new online tool offers effective self-assessment, consulting and a benchmark, free of charge. It helps to improve safety and health of the employees as well as the profitability of hospitals, nursing homes and other facilities in the healthcare sector.
