The two-day course on Applied Safety Science and Engineering Techniques merges Safety Science and Hazard Based Safety Engineering principles within the overall framework of a safety management process. The objective of this ASSET Process is to achieve, maintain and continuously improve safety. This ASSET Process has been synthesized from other current, mainstream principles of risk assessment and risk management, including ISO/IEC Guide 51, IEC Guide 116, ISO 31000, ISO/IEC 31010, ISO 14121, ISO 14971 and IEC (60)300-3-9.
You will learn the basic relationship between hazards, exposure and harm to persons, property and the environment and the means to safeguard against harm. As an example of these relationships, the mechanisms by which products can cause injury to the human body are explored in the workshop. You will also learn to use models and tools that can help you analyze those mechanisms and determine how best to prevent harm from occurring, in the framework of risk management, systems engineering and other relevant principles.
The ASSET Process and its guiding principles can be applied to virtually any industry and product segment.
You will put your skills to the test by applying ASSET analysis to some familiar electrical products. And you will finish the workshop prepared to address difficult safety issues using a multi-disciplined, team-oriented approach, supported by science as well as your own experience and judgment.
