Within the framework of the A+A, a special route was put together for visitors. There were stands of selected exhibitors and thematic focuses such as "Smart PSA, Digitalisation of Work and Digital Applications and Solutions".
Visitors were able to experience live what challenges and changes the new world of work brings with it and what solutions are being created for it.
Statement Prof. Dr. Ralph Bruder, TU Darmstadt, on the Future of Work
The increasing ability of technical devices to machine learning leads to new opportunities for occupational health and safety. In this way, measures to improve safety and health at work can be more individualised and personalised. What applications does this open up for personal protective systems? Which concepts of data security and data protection are necessary for this and how are these concepts accepted?
Increasing the degree of automation of technical systems in a wide variety of application areas also results in new forms of human-machine cooperation. How can security be guaranteed in the close interaction of people with independently operating machines? What role does safety play in determining the degree of automation?
The flexibility of work place and time offers many possibilities to react to different life situations. How can occupational health and safety be made possible in heterogeneous places of mobile work? What support is necessary for this? How can the self-responsible awareness for safe and healthy working at various locations at freely chosen times be increased?
The continuous observation and measurement of one's own state of health has become an everyday practice for many people. How does the work design react to this increased health consciousness? Which technical systems contribute to improving health? And what competence is necessary to be able to deal with the multitude of data on one's own health?
We will have to deal with these questions in the future when designing safe and healthy work. On the Highlight Route to the Future of Work, A+A exhibitors will present products, concepts and solutions intended for tomorrow's world of work.
