Man und Machinery – from an Eternal Conflict to an Exciting Challenge

The major problem in the field of application of ergonomic principles in machinery construction is not

so much a lack of good ergonomic solutions, but a deficiency in communication between ergonomists,

designers, manufacturers, buyers and users of machines, experts in standardisation and the public

authorities. This lack of communication provokes too often the construction of machinery without

adequate ergonomic design.

In the session it is to be discussed why it is so difficult to:

• include ergonomic principles into design of machinery?

• minimise the efforts required and difficulties encountered by employers integrating machinery in

the workplace?

• ensure that the feedback from the end users is taken into account?

The session will present the view of the different stakeholders onto these questions in an “ergonomic”

form by alternating short presentations with an extensive open discussion. The Chairmen of EU-Commission

machinery working group, of CEN/TC 122 (Ergonomics) and of CEN/TC 114 (Safety of Machinery)

will discuss with the congress visitors ways out of the eternal conflict. Additionally, ErgoMach will

present the added value of a comprehensive cooperation and its idea to realise it.

Occupational Diseases

In 2011 further limitations to the freedom of movement for workers within the EU drop out.

The national social security systems within the European Union still differ. This is also true for the compensation

of occupational diseases. The European list of occupational diseases promotes the process

of convergence of the national systems, but it failed to clear the existing differences. The EU commissioned

analyses in this field and aims for proposals for enhancements.

Two lectures from the German perspective highlight the issue from the medical, the legal and the

social-politcal point of view. Some remarkable developments in the neighbour countries Denmark,

France, and Switzerland are to be presented and discussed.

Coordinators: Bundesministerium für Arbeit und Soziales (BMAS), (Federal Ministry of Labour and

Social Affairs), Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung (DGUV) (German Social Accident Insurance)

Chairpersons: Puran Falatouri, BMAS und Dr. Andreas Kranig, DGUV

The Gesellschaft für Arbeitswissenschaft (GfA) concentrates in this session on the interaction of ergonomic

design and maintenance of the machinery. Surveys of the European Agency for Safety and Health

at Work showed that maintenance is a high-risk activity with some of the hazards resulting from the

nature of the work.

Maintenance work was rarely in the focus of work scientists. The implementation of ergonomic findings

and principles within the context of the machinery directive offers good opportunites for the improvement

of maintenance work.

International ILO Conference

Promoting Preventative Safety and Health Culture: International Instruments, National

Strategies and Good Practices

Every worker has rights to decent and productive work which give them a stake in lasting

peace, prosperity and progress. This is something that cannot be compromised, even

during a time of global socio-economic suffering such as economic crises, natural disaster or political

unrest. In order to ensure decent working conditions and occupational safety and health (OSH), the

International Labour Organisation (ILO), in collaboration with social partners as well as other international

and regional organisations, promotes national strategic approach which aims to strengthen national

OSH system through the development and implementation of national OSH policy and programme.

The 2011 ILO International Safety Conference, coinciding with A+A Congress, will focus on the application

of international tools on OSH strategic approach at national and enterprise levels. In particular,

good practice in construction and health sectors, which face high and emerging risks to occupational

accidents and diseases, will be highlighted. The conference will offer an excellent forum to share experience

of different stakeholders and learn how to put in practice at each level.

Organiser: International Labour Organisation (ILO) in co-operation with the International Social Security

Association (ISSA), the German Federal Association for Occupational Safety and Health (Basi) and

Messe Düsseldorf
