Occupational safety and health in Germany during the Corona crisis

German companies had to face up to a number of organisational and economic challenges as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, new regulations have been introduced relating to safety and health at work. A company survey commissioned by the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) and the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) shows that occupational safety and infection protection are of high importance during the Coronavirus crisis. For example, in 98% of companies that have introduced specific occupational safety and health (OSH) measures, the senior management team has been involved in their development and implementation. Companies have adopted a large number of the recommended measures from central government's SARS-CoV-2 occupational health and safety regulation.
