The Section on Prevention in Transportation of the International Social Security Association (ISSA), together with its member BG Verkehr, has produced five fact sheets on COVID-19 protective measures for various transportation sectors in six languages. Additional Korean versions of the fact sheets are translated and published by the Korean Occupational Safety and Health Agency (KOSHA).
The fact sheets on infection prevention in road haulage, waste disposal, postal logistics/CEP and taxi and driving school operations are now available for free download at the BG Verkehr coronavirus website in English, German, Polish, Romanian, Russian and Turkish. In addition, Korean versions of the fact sheets are translated and published by KOSHA. In the fact sheets, BG Verkehr's prevention experts have compiled industry-specific recommendations for infection protection.
These industry-specific recommendations specify the time-limited occupational safety standard of the German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS). This occupational health and safety standard is the guideline for the protection against infection across all sectors. During work and in practical cases, company physicians and occupational safety specialists offer a competent point of reference.
Information on the coronavirus and the associated health protection is developing dynamically. Therefore, the fact sheets are regularly reviewed to ensure that they are up to date. You are kindly invited to visit the information page on coronavirus more often.
