The German Federal Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (BAuA) was formed on 01.07.1996 as a public law institute. The aims and focal activities of BAuA as reflected in the tasks assigned to it are oriented towards the basic concern of maintaining and improving safety and health at work. The approaches adopted to achieve this are the safe design of technology and the humane design of working conditions. An essential element here is the maintenance and promotion of health and work ability on the basis of an all-embracing notion of health and health-based behaviour. The BAuA experts that will contribute to the project have extensive expertise in psychosocial factors, health aspects of working time arrangements, flexible work styles, the ageing workforce, research methods and data analysis, cooperation with social partners, networking at European level and internationally.
