International Seminar of the ISSA

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

Organized in collaboration with the ISSA sections:

° Metal Industry
° Electricity
° Machine and System Safety

Main Topics:

Risk Assessment
Knowledge Transfer

H.-J. Bischoff, ISSA Section on Machine and System Safety,Mannheim, Germany
Ch. Schenk, AUVA, Vienna, Austria

In collaboration with
A. Causevic, AUVA, Vienna
B. Huber, AUVA, Vienna
M. Brand, Consultancy/Coaching, Maria Enzersdorf, Austria

Simultaneous interpretation German – English

What can you expect?

The international seminar will remain faithful to its tradition of interaction in relation to the involvement of the participants and will offer new didactic possibilities. The technical experts will not „only“ give a lecture on the individual topics, but they will be also integrated into an overall choreography using innovative methods. Let yourself be surprised! Use the opportunity and participate in our raffle!

11.00–12.30 Session 1:
Risk Assessment

Illustration Michael Hüter

What is actually meant by the term „risk“, what are the parameters that increase a risk? What about our personal risk assessment, do we always assess risk correctly? What do you need to know in order to reliably assess a certain risk? If you are interested in these topics, you are in the right session. Together with our experts, we will approach the concept of risk and also learn about new approaches to risk assessment other than the familiar ones and also „try out“ one or two examples.

How we subjectively – sometimes even wrongly – assess risk.
M. Wittlich, Instiute for Occupational Safety (IFA) DGUV, Saint Augustin, Germany

12.30 – 14.00 Lunch break

14.00–15.30 Session 2:
„Digitalisation – Health and safety at work 4.0“

Illustration: Michael Hüter

New and automated technologies are increasingly having an impact on health and safety at work. This can create opportunities and possibilities to make work easier for people and to avoid exposing them to certain dangers – or the danger of new, unprecedented dangers and threats that need to be addressed. In any case, increasing digitisation is changing work situations, processes and risk scenarios, which in some cases require a radical reorientation with regard to technical, organisational and personal health and safety at work.

Risk assessment in a digital age

Colleague Algorithm: The interaction of human beings and artificial intelligence in professional life
V. de Zeeuw, IBM Germany GmbH, Frankfurt, Germany

15.30 – 16.00 Refresh & Talk: Coffee, tea, cold beverages and brain food

16.00–17.30 Session 3:
„Knowledge Transfer

Illustration: Michael Hüter

The „traditional“ frontal teaching with or without Power Point can certainly still be used, but should move more and more into the background. Not least also by new technical possibilities, knowledge Transfer can take place effectively and also efficiently: Terms and topics such as „Augmented Reality, 3 D Simulation, Virtual Commissioning” offer technical approaches and possibilities for new forms of knowledge transfer. As far as the didactic framework is concerned, terms such as “webinar, self-determined learning or blended learning” are possible options to traditional approaches. Let‘s find out together – supported by experts – which possibilities and alternatives there are in comparison to the classical lecture.
