Skills@ISH clusters the variety of the lecture programme offered by ISH. Numerous forums, seminars and lectures of ISH offer the possibility to gather information, to exchange, deepen and enlarge skills and the own knowledge around topics about the responsible management of water and energy in buildings.
Organiser: Messe Frankfurt in cooperation with the Association of Air Conditioning and Ventilation in Buildings (FGK)
Location: Hall 8.0 A19 / A31
The Air Conditioning Forum is the information and communication platform of the air-conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation sector. It spotlighted the subjects of European energy saving laws and their national implementation, experiences with the inspection of air-conditioning plants with respect to energy efficiency and BIM for component manufacturers. These subjects were presented in poster displays and introduced and discussed in a high-grade programme of lectures.
The Bathroom Workshop
Cognitive and physical assistance systems to strengthen the core competence of sanitation, heating and air-conditioning fitters at the point of sale
Organiser: Association of the German Sanitation Industry (VDS) and The German Sanitation, Heating and Air Conditioning Association (ZVSHK)
Location: Hall 4.2 G60
The process of demographic change and the energy transition are opening an enormous market potential to the sanitation, heating and air-conditioning trade. Working against this are the shortage of skilled personnel and the increasing age of fitters, which is leading to an ever-greater shortage of staff. The number of apprentices fell between 1998 and 2016 from approx. 63,000 to around 34,000. The demands placed on fitters are climbing due to the increasingly complex nature of the systems installed. According to BG Bau, the accident prevention and insurance association of the building industry, the incidence of muscle and skeletal disease (32 %), defective hearing (25 %) and heart / circulation illness (24 %) climbs as employees grow older.
Initial proposals for this were presented within the framework of the Future Bathroom Workshop in Hall 4.2 of ISH 2019 in cooperation with the Association of the German Sanitation Industry (VDS).More information
