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
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. On the one side accidents at work of different
severity (commuting accidents are excluded) and on the other side
work related diseases such as musculoskeletal problems, skin-
and respiratory diseases, psychological stress and cases of violence
The report was published in printed form in December 2011; it will published soon at the website of the EU-DG: >>
