Chair of methods of safety engineering and incident research
The Chair of Methods of Safety Engineering and Incident Research as one of currently 14 Chairs at the Faculty of Safety Engineering strives towards a scientifically well-grounded approach to all aspects of Safety Engineering. A multidisciplinary way of teaching, learning and working is substantial for adequate solutions for different kinds of problems in the field of Safety Engineering. Therefore, integrating different fields of science - from natural sciences over engineering sciences to fields like medicine and psychology - under the aspect of safety is mandatory. With our teaching we strive to provide our students with the fundamentals of Safety Engineering. This will prepare them for their professional careers and enable them to act responsibly in different fields of work.
Our research efforts are aimed at developing the theoretical and methodological fundations of Safety Engineering as a scientific discipline. Findings from that part of research are then applied to practical research projects and further developed in order to enable users in the fields of industry and science to readily use the methods derived from our research.
Main areas of research
Methodical assessment and management of safety-relevant aspects of industrial plants and buildings Normative and historic fundamentals of Safety Engineering and Safety Science Civil Protection and Emergency Management Innovative fire extinguishing methods for coal-fires in the People's Republic of China During all of our research we are in close cooperation with our partners from industry, academia and public authorities.
