A hub for experience sharing

The DGUV Präventionsforum+ serves as a digital hub for networking internal subjects and departments. It’s a space to collaborate on health protection regulations and manage projects.

Employees can supplement or even shift their project group work online, ensuring detailed documentation of steps and outcomes. Employees can supplement or even move their project group work online, ensuring detailed documentation of steps and results.

A portal for 6.000 participants

Following a Europe-wide tender, the DGUV chose Fellow Digitals' Intranet (originally called Viadesk) as the platform for the Präventionsforum+. Fellow Digitals offers social intranet environments for companies of all sizes, accessible globally after registration. The portal, designed for up to 6,000 users, is expanding to more countries, including Austria, Switzerland, and Italy. Employees can access platform information from anywhere, share their own data, or retrieve it anytime, thus enhancing remote work.

Tracing projects and processes

The platform’s advantage lies in its ability to keep projects and processes traceable and to make results accessible for sharing across departments, even at a later stage. Employees benefit from the results of previous projects, sharing successes and learning from failures. Despite the size of the platform, no one is overwhelmed by information overload or even excluded from emails. A sophisticated rights allocation ensures that everyone gets only the information they need, maintaining efficiency without compromising the flow of information. External participants don’t have access to protected data or project groups, so internal information stays internal, and workgroups operate without external interference
