In this sense the monitoring system should be based on existing survey data provided by the institutes involved an empirically verified source of information that gives a factual interdisciplinary overview of the relating social fields.

With the work-related monitoring system the BAuA fulfills its task of systematic monitoring working conditions in consideration of current societal challenges. At the same time it represents a further development of the national reporting practice by meeting the growing requirement of a multidisciplinary perspective through an interdepartmental cooperation approach - condition for politics being able to develop sustainable solution strategies. Thereby the project can lead to a stronger cooperation within the departmental research in general.
