Seminar 1st PEROSH Research Exchange Warsaw

160x160-bis

 

Established and young researchers met at CIOP-PIB in Warsaw to discuss and exchange on ‘Translational Research in Occupational Safety and Health’. Max Lum from NIOSH,  Ludwig Berger from Brass Monier Group and Robert Bezemer from TNO gave key note presentations on 22nd  October.

In addition, there were three parallel sessions on:

  1. Ageing at work – examples of translational OSH Research in context of demographic change,
  2. Prevention through design approaches and applications in light of industry 4.0 (incl. AMI, VR-simulations, Smart Factory),
  3. E-Tools for working environments as means of translating research into usable e-solutions.

 

The programme further included a visit to the brand new CIOP-PIB laboratories and a PEROSH networking dinner on the 21st. All together, 70 participants from across PEROSH members and a small number of special, external guests attended this first PEROSH research exchange event.

Below you find a number of videos to watch for further impressions. Also, all key note speeches have been video taped and are available to watch and download below. Presentations of the three parallel sessions are downloadable via the programme.
