Prevention in the field of collaborative robotics

Year : 2018
20 pages
Type : Thematical Note
Ref : Eurogip-129/E
Theme : Occupational risk prevention

EUROGIP summarizes in this note the thoughts highlighted in various work done notably in France, Germany and the Netherlands in the field of collaborative robotics and risk prevention measures that could be implemented.

Collaborative robotics concerns robots capable of interacting with human beings as part of industrial processes. The human being and the robot thus share the same work area to carry out all or part of their tasks, whereas a “conventional” industrial robot is characterized by its physical remoteness and the fact that there is no collaboration with a human being. Although the stated objectives and expectations of the market players may diverge, it turns out that the identified risks are largely the same. And yet, societal issues involving collaborative robotics and increased interaction with human beings are apparently not neglected.

Year : 2016
32 pages
Type : Thematical Note
Ref : Eurogip-118/E
Country : France, Germany
Theme : Statistics

To generate finer trends and allow comparisons, EUROGIP publishes bilateral indicators in Germany and France from 2010 to 2014.

The information in this document are intended to complement the harmonized statistics published by Eurostat. The challenge for EUROGIP is to identify, among the data available for the two countries, those to ensure both data comparability and monitoring over time. This document presents not only statistical data, but also financial ones, in particular active annuities paid to the insured following an accident at work, commuting accident or occupational disease. It will be regularly updated to enable consistent monitoring of information over time.

The information put into perspective by EUROGIP come from official data of the competent bodies of the two countries concerned, namely the National Fund of the Occupational Risks Department of Health insurance for employees (CNAMTS) in France and Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung (DGUV) in Germany.

TTIP and possible impacts for occupational injury insurance

Year : 2015
6 pages
Type : Thematical Note
Ref : Eurogip-111-E
Theme : Regulation

Since the negotiations began in 2013, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) has aroused numerous discussions.

For some, it represents a hope of extraordinary economic growth. For others, it means the dismantling of public services. Now, in negotiations that are confidential it is very hard to measure what impact the agreement will have on social matters and in particular on occupational injury and disease insurance. There is no doubt that it will have impacts on occupational safety and health (OSH) standardization and certification. This is the conclusion that EUROGIP stands in this note.
