After some freelance consultation services, from 2006 development of a hazardous substances information system for the amalgamated metal industry accident insurer (GISMET). The system received very positive feedback from craft as well as from SMEs. However the accident insuerers needed some time to decide as to whether and how to continue developing the system. Thus it is still password protected. If you are intereseted to test the system please ask for a password at the Kooperationsstelle Hamburg.
A similar system has been put into practice by the accident insurers of the construction and the chemicals industry, see: www.gisbau.de and www.gischem.de

Project manager in the benOSH study, conducted on behalf of the EU Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities in order to establish the operational costs of work-related accidents and ill health. These were then compared to the necessary investments for related measures that have or could have prevented these accidents or diseases. Also benefits like increased productivity through improved processes or machinery etc. were considered. The study was led by the institute Prevent from Brussels. The partners established 401 case studies in more than 50 companies.
