We ask for your contributions and ideas for the A+A Congress 2021!
The Basi invites to participate with proposals for the A+A congress program.
The call for ideas and topics for the 37th International A+A Congress 2021 is now open. Basi, the Federal Association for Occupational Safety and Health at Work in Germany, is calling on all interested parties to take part in the “Call for Participation”. All proposals can be easily submitted online - more information can be found here.
In his welcoming address, Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Hubertus Heil outlined the current challenges being faced: “The challenges presented by the corona pandemic cannot be resolved by politicians alone. We need the support of experts and practitioners in research, industry and institutes. I therefore cordially invite you, with this call for participation, to submit your ideas during the preparations for the A+A Congress 2021.” Dr Christian Felten, Managing Director of Basi, which is organising the A+A Congress, went over the main points: “Biological substances will be one of the topics on the programme. In addition, developments in digitalisation have raised important questions, such as: What influence does digitalisation have on jobs? How does OSH work in a home office environment? How do you check that regulations are being observed? How do we ensure safety and health at work in supply chains? What do we mean by “Good Work Worldwide”? These are issues that concern us all and which require solutions to be found.
The international A+A Congress and the world-leading A+A Trade Fair 2021 will take place October 26-29, 2021 in Düsseldorf.
A variety of formats and contributions are possible at the 37th A+A Congress 2021, including: • presentations, posters, media, demonstrations • current thesis papers, discussions of controversial opinions, strategy concepts • project results and research findings • practical experiences, good practical solutions • special events for specific target groups
on the following topics and issues: • strategies for occupational safety and health • health at work • prevention of biological, chemical and physical exposure • occupational safety and health, industrial safety
There will also be events and services for selected target groups, industries and networks.
The next A+A Congress will cover the main topics in conjunction with the A+A Trade Fair, the world’s leading event for OSH and decent work design.
The closing date for submissions is 31 January 2021. The congress and an overview of the planned events will be announced from April 2021. All those submitting proposals will be notified in May/June 2021 whether their proposals have been accepted for the 37th A+A Congress.
All necessary health precautions, hygiene measures and social distancing rules will be observed at the congress. Should it become apparent that a face-to-face event is not feasible, the Basi office will assess the submitted proposals and, if possible, convert them into digital event formats in consultation with the contributors.
About the congress
The A+A Congress is the central joint event for occupational safety in Germany - parallel to the A+A trade fair, the world marketplace for products and services for personal protection, occupational safety and health at work. In 2019 more than 5,000 congress visitors came to the A+A Congress at the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf Süd. Some 40 event series provided a forum for discussion of the latest scientific findings and their practical implementation as well as for an intensive exchange between politics and business.
