Planning and testing of a preventive sensitisation and training measure to avoid physical impairments in the construction sector, especially at work on scaffolding. Construction work puts the supporting and musculoskeletal system under great strain. Data based on a vast number of medical check-ups among construction workers have shown an increase in the number of muscle and skeleton injuries. Special attention has to be given to scaffolding. There, activities are connected with high risks, employee in this sector has to move 6000 kg of scaffolding equipment horizontally and vertically every day. Based on the “construction work specific back training for apprentices” additional information material was developed, which was then applied in theoretical and practical education. Within the workshop carrying exercises as well as exercises of how to pick up and how to pass loads will be demonstrated and trained with the participants. For a better understanding further information is given concerning the function of the musculoskeletal system. Multimedia training modules were developed in this project, which are available on the Internet. By using new media the findings of the project and the tuition materials can be easily distributed. Project partners: - Occupational medical service (Arbeitsmedizinischer Dienst - AMD) and technical advisory service of the institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention in the building trade Frankfurt am Main (Technischer Beratungsdienst der Bau-Berufsgenossenschaften Frankfurt am Main) - Technician health insurance fund (Techniker Krankenkasse ) - Social fund of scaffolding trade (Sozialkasse des Gerüstbaugewerbes) - Industry union of constructing-agrarian-environment (Industriegewerkschaft Bauen-Agrar-Umwelt)
