Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection


With lockdowns easing across Europe and many employees returning to work, the Austrian Labour Inspectorate (ZAI) is organising a webinar to help workers and employers adapt to new levels of employee protection post-Covid-19.

Speakers discuss the long-term effects of the SARS-CoV-2 virus upon the working life. They present effective protective measures implemented in different sectors and delve into the changes that will be necessary to build a culture of risk prevention in order to establish safe working environment for all.

Alongside providing forecasts for operational Covid-19 protective measures at a company level, speakers also discuss the recommendations of organisations with a focus on ensuring occupational safety and health (OSH) and that workers are protected from the virus in the long term.

Participants watching the webinar remotely have the opportunity to ask the panel any relevant questions they may have.
