We look back at a very successful anniversary event and conference held on September 6-8, 2023 in Stockholm. This was the largest event ever organised by PEROSH and it was fantastic to see all the networking that took place and new friendships that emerged. We welcomed quite a few registered stakeholders, amongst them a significantly large group of former PEROSH directors.
We sincerely hope all participants have enjoyed it as well. Feel free to send us any feedback on the event so we can improve it in the future (email@example.com). At the end of the conference, it was announced that HSE would be our next host in Manchester in 2025 and INAIL in Rome in 2027.
A special thanks goes to the Swedish team of SAWEE, our host in Stockholm.
All presenters, also the keynote speakers, who gave approval to have their presentations video recorded and their slides used, have been added to the PEROSH repository. Please follow this link for all videos and slides; hyperlinks are offered to see them immediately.
Program and Book of Abstracts
The final program and book of abstracts are posted on the conference webpage and are now public.
The PEROSH history booklet is also available in digital form and can be downloaded from the PEROSH repository. Please follow this link.
Early-stage researcher awards
During the conference 27 early-stage researchers competed for three PEROSH early-stage research awards associated to the three conference topics. This was far more than what we expected. These awards were given to the following researchers.
Session “Work organisation and OSH”
Johanna Nold (BAuA)
“Work less, feel better? Evidence on working time changes and wellbeing in Germany”
The jury found that: “Johanna Nold presented a very relevant topic, and she demonstrated high scientific and technical quality. All relevant aspects of the project were covered, and her presentation was clear and pedagogical. It was easy to get a good overview of the project, and she has a good potential for a successful research-career in the time to come.”
Session “OSH questions and Techniques”
Julia Linke (IFA/DGUV)
“A reference material for non-volatile PAHs – development, production and analysis”
The jury found that: “Julia Linke is a winner of the award presenting her project in a very solid manner, both logical and pedagogical. She actively involved the audience, talked freely and fluently. She has a clear potential for becoming a very competent researcher.”
Session “Anticipating future questions”
Moritz Schneider (IFA/DGUV)
“Prevention of slip, trip and fall accidents using machine learning”
The jury found that: “Moritz Schneider held an excellent and comprehensive presentation. The experiment he carried out has high quality and has clearly the potential of having high impact on the field of occupational safety and health. Moritz was clearly a worthy winner of the award for early-stage researchers.”
PEROSH again congratulates these young colleagues with their awards.
