Working time reporting for Germany: Implementation, scientific preparation and utilization of the BAuA-Working Time Survey 2019

Project number: F 2452 Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Ongoing Project Planned end: 2022-03-31


This project is part of the "Working Time Reporting for Germany" initiative. This initiative aims to implement the BAuA working-time survey as a panel survey and to communicate and to publish survey results on working time and working-time aspects in Germany for different target groups (science, politics, social partners, professional public, etc.). BAuA working time survey participants are employees in Germany who work at least 10 hours a week.

In the third wave of the BAuA working-time survey around 7.500 employees who have already participated in the first and / or second wave (2015 and 2017 surveys) will be interviewed in 2019. In addition, about 3.000 employees who have not previously taken part in the BAuA-Working Time Survey will be interviewed. In a computer-assisted telephone interview participants answer questions regarding their employment situation, working time aspects and other working conditions as well as their health and well-being.

The findings from the data from the various waves of the BAuA working-time survey will be distributed via scientific reports, peer-reviewed papers and presentations.
