Occupational skin diseases (BK 19) represent the second most frequent occupational disease. To address this, "the Austrian Workers' Compensation Board" (AUVA) launched the pilot project "BK 19 - Prevention and Rehabilitation of Occupational Skin Diseases" in 2015. The evaluation supports AUVA in fulfilling its legal mandate according to the ASVG for the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases effectively and efficiently. It enables organizational learning for the upcoming rollout, serves as a steering tool for the management of the branch office, and makes the results of the pilot project explicit. The approach of the evaluation is based on the integrative modular system for evaluations in the area of ??prevention that AUVA deals with, and focuses on outputs, the outcomes of the intended target groups, and implementation accuracy with regard to the rollout. A mixed-method approach consisting of written questionnaires and interviews is used.
