Industrial Safety Engineering

Por: Swayam . en: ,


Safety is one of the key dimensions of engineering asset management. Safety by design or prevention through design is in the core for maintaining engineering systems safe. The objective of this course is to impart knowledge on different facets and aspects of engineering systems safety, focusing on tools, techniques and methodologies needed for prevention of occurrences of unsafe operations and accidents under different industrial settings. Upon completion of the course, the students will be equipped with concepts of engineering systems safety, dimensions of engineering systems safety, safety design and analysis mathematics, design for engineering systems safety and control for safety, and integrating safety with other operational goals such as quality and reliability.
