Professional association of the building industry: Comparatively high number of accidents
he German Road Safety Council (DVR) is calling on the Federal Government to commit itself to greater road safety in cities at the beginning of the German EU Council Presidency.
Safety helmets on construction sites are seen as standard equipment when safety is threatened from above. But other parts of the body should also play a major role in occupational safety to prevent injuries and long-term consequences.
You usually see them on men walking through fire: Breathing masks attached to breathing air tanks at the fire station. During the Corona crisis, when protective equipment was in short supply, breathing protection technology from the fire brigades was also used in hospitals. During non-postponable operations with a high risk of infection.
The corona pandemic has not only unsettled companies, but above all their employees. The fear of losing one's job, the prospect of an uncertain future and the changed, new working conditions bear the risk of previously unknown burdens.
People have long since got used to the sight in the supermarket or on the S-Bahn: So-called everyday masks in all colours and patterns, often self-sewn, but now also offered for sale by numerous fashion labels.
The need for partitions and hygiene requirements has been enormous since the beginning of the Corona crisis. Whether in customer contact or in open-plan offices - companies had to hurry to stock up on initial equipment.
One and a half meters distance, better two, is the order of the day in the Corona crisis. What is already difficult to maintain on the road becomes even more complicated in the assembly hall, workshop or warehouse. Distance regulations are a challenge for occupational safety, which companies also want to master with technical tools and apps.
Cleaning is good, disinfecting is better - this seems to be true everywhere since the beginning of the corona crisis. Experts are cutting back: In many cases soap is sufficient, for example when washing your hands at home.
Since the beginning of the Corona crisis, the demand for professional disinfection solutions has increased dramatically, reports Rijk Mallee. He works for the EWS GmbH, which is receiving demand from all over Europe during the crisis. He sees great potential for his solutions, especially in the area of occupational safety.
Since the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, millions of people have been in the home office - for many a completely new experience. Opinions about the home office are divided, among employees and employers alike.

Experts from the field of product testing will help to make urgently needed protective masks available more quickly in the corona crisis. Two special laboratories have developed a rapid test for masks and are currently testing at full speed. At the same time, the shortage of masks poses challenges for the construction industry.
