Film screening: The issues of automation and the dangers faced by mountain rescue workers
The Federal Ministry of Labour, Family and Youth
Films are an excellent way to learn more about occupational safety and health (OSH) topics. On 16 May, attendees have the opportunity to learn about two topics: how automation affects our working lives and the specific dangers faced by mountain rescue workers.
This film screening event from the Federal Ministry of Labour, Family and Youth includes two films. The first, ‘Automatic Fitness,’ is about how automation can lead to an increase in self-optimisation, competition and work intensification and how this can negatively affect our lives with increased stress. The screening is followed by a short discussion. The second film, ‘Safety123’ shows the difficult conditions that mountain rescuers work under every day as they try to make the mountains safer for everyone.
These screenings on 16 May are useful for any OSH professionals who are interested in learning more about OSH issues raised by automation or about the challenges faced by mountain rescuers. After the screenings and discussion, there is a networking opportunity where attendees can discuss specific aspects in more detail.
