Practical guidelines for adapting work to older employees and providing age and ageing-appropriate working conditions
BAuA supports all those who are confronted with demographic change in their daily workplace by means of action guidelines already tested in companies and administrations. The aim is to develop strategies for healthy and productive ageing.
The long-announced demographic change currently is in full swing. Businesses and society have begun to face the challenges of an aging society. Maintaining workability and employability throughout the working life is the key strategy for healthy ageing. The core element of this strategy is achieving an expanded prevention culture in businesses and administrations.
In the future, BAuA will be presenting proven action guidelines, already applied successfully in companies and administrations. The list of these action guidelines from BAuA and INQA is currently under review. An update will take place in the spring of 2017. The individual approaches, which the action guidelines offer, must then be adapted to the respective specific characteristics of the companies.
Within the scope of the model programme of the German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) to combat work-related illnesses and within the framework of the Initiative New Quality of Work (INQA), BAuA has initiated and supported a variety of projects and products.
