Research at the IAG

Our research activity is focused upon the relationship between work and health. We study for example how work must be designed in order for it to be performed for a long time without detriment to workers' health. In particular, we measure mental stress at work and develop measures to overcome it. We evaluate prevention measures in order to demonstrate and improve their efficacy. Particular research topics are traffic safety and adult learning.

Our topics

We methodically conduct research into:

  • Mental stresses and health
  • Work against the background of demographic change
  • New approaches to adult education
  • Traffic safety in the context of work
  • Corporate health management
  • The evaluation of preventive measures
