Safe and healthy at work by Persuasive Technology? Experimental laboratory and field study on the effects of new forms of IT-based feedback at work

Project number: F 2327 Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Completed Project

Description:

In everyday life, occupational safety and health behavior is ensured particularly through education, standard operating procedures and adequate information. Their effectiveness is very different depending on the respective application, while in sum, a significant deficit concerning the implementation must be stated. Modern, adaptive computer systems are potentially able to assist the user by influencing his behavior through real-time evaluation feedback. This Project investigates the effects of different feedback-media on a) user behavior and b) distraction from the primary work task.
