Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
The Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) is a public-law institution without legal capacity based in Dortmund with branches in Berlin and Dresden plus a field office in Chemnitz. As a federal authority it is directly responsible to the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS).
The Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health as a major governmental research institution advises the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs in all matters of safety and health and of the humane design of working conditions. As a federal institution with R&D functions the Federal Institute operates at the interface between science and politics and renders transfer services from the science system into policy, corporate practice and the broader society and vice versa. BAuA's tasks range from policy advice, the performance of sovereign duties and knowledge transfer into corporate practice through to the educational and instructional work done by the DASA Working World Exhibition.
