Abstract According to the German Occupational Safety and Health Act (Arbeitsschutzgesetz, see CIS 02-501), employers need to carry out an assessment of working conditions to determine what occupational safety and health measures need to be implemented, and to strive for the continuous improvement in working conditions. These provisions can be met only if a suitable occupational safety and health organization system is implemented within the company. This report presents examples of good practices in the assessment of working conditions implemented by enterprises in the following sectors: non-ferrous metal foundry; regional bus transport operator; care institution for the elderly; brewery; chemical company; sugar manufacturer; textile company; water supply; laundry; cleaning tasks in day nurseries; hospital; machinery manufacturer; police force.
