Symposium Electricity & Safety
3rd Intl. Symposium Electricity and Safety | 5-6 November 2018 | Dresden / Germany


The industrial use of electricity has always been the driving force for our economic development. This ranges from energy supply to the social networks of modern communication, which would be inconceivable without electric current.

Electric current, however, can also present hazards if it is not applied safely. New technologies are emerging rapidly and are associated with new electrical risks. To ensure that people can work safely with these technologies we need to identify the new risks, develop best practices and prevention measures and implement them.

Therefore, various research activities are being carried out to investigate the effects of electric current on human beings. The results yielded by previous experimental work or obtained in today‘s numerical simulations provide an important basis for answering recent questions in the field of electrical safety. In addition to the results from the field of electropathology, the Symposium will also cover protective measures and battery technologies.

The event is intended for representatives from the research, industrial and standardization sector.
