The concept: "A new approach towards integrated occupational health and saftey management"
The VGH board commissioned the project for a new approach to occupational health and safety management at the end of 2011. This was followed by an assessment of the existing measures relating to occupational health and safety and ergonomics, prevention and counselling, healthcare promotion, personnel support and development. On the basis of this, a forward-looking concept, tailor-made to the existing conditions was developed. (see table)
The concept was developed by the relevant departments with the support of the Institute of Inter - disciplinary Labour Studies at Leibniz University, Hannover.
