Risk Assessment

Which dangers hide at your workplace?

Risk Assessment - What's that supposed to be good for?

We want you to go home healthy from work. Not only today, but every day during your working life, so that you can enjoy your retirement healthy and fit.

Dangers at your place of work are not always immediately recognizable. Especially the psychological strain at the workplace can be very subtle.

Sometimes late effects only occur after a long time. To prevent this, a so-called risk assessment (GBU) must be prepared for your workplace. This is required by law. The GBU is a very good method for this, in order to recognize endangerments early and to take from it measures for the improvement of the situation.

Strictly speaking, your employer must create this GBU. Since the employer (the state of Baden-Württemberg) cannot be present at every workplace in the case of the University of Constance and does not know the conditions, the responsibility was passed on to the respective department or group leader in the context of a transfer of duties.

You are not the only one to create a GBU: the safety engineers and company doctors will be happy to advise you.

Do you know whether or which hazards exist at your workplace or that of your employees?

You will find all documents on the page "Documents and Forms" (only visible after registration). Members of the university may copy and adapt the files. If you look at the pages from "outside", please contact us. We will be happy to provide you with material.
