Managing the challenge of SARS CoV-2 (Covid-19) at workplaces:
The Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (BMAS) has published the new SARS-Cov-2 occupational safety rule on 20/8/2020. It was created jointly by the occupational safety committees at the Federal Ministry of Labor and coordinated by the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA). As an appointed Member of the Committee of Workplaces (ASTA) of the German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, I commented on the several drafts, proposed adjustments especially on the part informing employees and employers about the virus, the engagement of all stakeholders required to manage the challenge of SARS CoV-2 (Covid-19), the ventilation part (employee behavioural recommendations and technical solutions) and approved the rule.
