Ageing-appropriate workplace design

The AUVA leaflet M028 "Ageing-appropriate workplace design" was developed in the context of the AUVA-funded project "Ageing-appropriate and ergonomic workplace design" from 2013 to 2014. It serves

  • to raise awareness among decision-makers on the subject of older workforces,
  • the promotion of safety and health at work
  • and optimising performance

Information sheet: Visual function

The Workers' Protection Act (ArbeitnehmerInnenschutzgesetz - ASchG) obliges employers to ensure the safety and health protection of workers in the workplace. Among other things, the design of the work has to take the age of the employees into account.

For AUVAsicher, the prevention focus "Age-appropriate work" is a reason to take a closer look at the potential of age-appropriate working conditions for the maintenance of health and work ability. The occupational physicians of AUVAsicher has created an information leaflet on the change of visual function in the course of the working career.
