These risks have a clear impact on the safety and health of workers in numerous sectors. In order to specify these challenges more precisely and to identify suitable measures for enabling occupational activities to remain feasible under the changed conditions, it is necessary to identify and address research gaps at an international level.
Ensuring occupational safety and health in times of climate change in a green economy are of high priority for the German G7 presidency in the Employment Track. Therefore, the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) and the Institutes of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) seek to address relevant topics in a networking event.
This networking event will be a platform to discuss climate change-related challenges, research results, lessons-learned and solutions for a healthy and safe work in times of climate change on an international level.
Post Workshop on 18 October 2022
As part of a post-workshop, the topic of regulations in the area of climate change and OSH will be deepened. This half-day event will be held as well at the DGUV Academy in Dresden.
