Working-, radiation- and laserprotection

Specialists: the Representatives

For numerous special task areas beyond the normal administration the University has representatives. One focal point is the large area of security: data protection and hazardous material officer, the safety engineer and the Radiation Protection Agents fall into this category. And if once again computer viruses have taken root onto a computer, virus protection officer helps in the data center. The Equality Officer cares about the equality of men and women in the university. Contact for all aspects of the disabled is the severely handicapped employee representative for the employees and the Disability Officer for the students.


At our institute representatives are engaged for radiation protection, x-ray protection, laser safety and for the safety.
