IAD takes part in university competition TU Meet & Move

“At TU Meet & Move, the entire university meets for a major sports and health event in the university’s athletics stadium. In addition to informational activities and demonstrations of a wide range of sports offered by the unisports centre, there are various competitions, which visitors can take part in.

As every year, employees and friends of the IAD formed a team for the ultramarathon. In the best possible weather conditions and moods, the team “Ergonauten” ran a total of 42.2 km and reached the 19th place out of 39 teams. The evening ended with a cozy get-together in the university stadium.”

4th edition of the textbook and reference work “Arbeitswissenschaft” is published

Complexity and dynamics characterise today's working world and create high demands on the performance, innovation and adaptability of companies and their employees. The design of efficient and productive work processes, in which employees enjoy harmless, bearable and reasonable working conditions, as well as being able to develop scope for action, contribute their competences and develop them in cooperation with others, is therefore becoming increasingly important. As a textbook and reference work, the book explains the essential models and methods for the analysis, design and optimisation of work processes with regard to the mentioned criteria. Central subject areas of research and teaching in the field of human factors & ergonomics such as workers, forms of work, company and work organisation, group and team work, working time, work management, occupational safety, occupational health promotion, work environment and ergonomics are represented systematically and conveyed on the basis of practical examples. The fourth edition has been completely revised.
