Abstract Changing conditions in the world of work raise new questions concerning safety and health protection as well as the development of individual aptitude during the various phases of working life so as to ensure long-term employability. Sustainable employability presupposes being conscious of the importance of preserving one's state of health and good long-term individual management of one's health. Indeed, one needs to be in good health in order to develop professional skills. This report comments on various aspects of long-term employability and highlights certain gaps in German health policies.
