About the Chair Methods of Safety Engineering/Incident Research

Safety Engineering is all about the risks the modern industrial age presents to humans and to the environment.

Safety Engineering is an indpendent course of study at Bergische Universität Wuppertal (University of Wuppertal).

To cover all aspects associated with risks of different kinds, a methodical basis is necessary. Technical components as well as organizational and behavioral aspects are to be integrated in this methodical basis.

The Chair of Methods of Safety Engineering/Incident Research as one of currently 12 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


During all of our research we are in close cooperation with our partners from industry, academia and public authorities.
