A Contribution to a Culture of Prevention
This IAG report examines the concept of fairness and its roots in human rights with respect to creating humane working conditions. It looks at the importance of fairness for occupational safety and health and a culture of prevention as well as the approaches that are suitable for achieving this. As part of a literature review, the spotlight was put on “fair organization”, “fair management” and “fair setting-based prevention”. Their importance for a company’s management processes was analyzed in terms of the company’s culture.
In order to ascertain what role fairness plays at work and its significance to the German Social Accident Insurance, the directors of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) and the International Social Security Association (ISSA) were interviewed.
