Find, connect, renew in safety

to the Library

Around a hundred years ago, the field of safety engineering arose from the need to better ensure occupational safety within the industrialization. Process safety followed later and safety science grew into a diverse field with many different aspects. Today the field is still developing strongly. Whereas other knowledge collections focus on a specific component within safety management, this knowledge collection focuses on the discipline and the profession of safety expert.

In this collection you will find information on, among other things, general developments of the profession, the diversity of training and courses, as well as insights on the position of the safety profession in today's society and industrial developments.
