Welcome to the Safety Artisan!
Hi everyone, and welcome to The Safety Artisan, a series of #Safety #Engineering #Training videos.
Want to Learn?
Perhaps you are a student, frustrated at the lack of system safety training resources available online. Maybe you are an engineer, looking to get into safety or you need to know how to conduct a safety task allocated to you.
Want to Hire?
You might be looking to hire and want to know what to put in a job description, or what to look for in the CVs/resumes that you receive. Perhaps you are a recruitment agent wondering how to best to match applicants to vacancies. You might be a fellow trainer, looking for useful information, or reading up on the subject.
Want to Understand?
Maybe you are a manager who needs to understand what your safety staff do. Or perhaps you think that you might need to bring in a specialist: What are your options? What do you need? Really, what is the best way to achieve it?
If any of these issues sound familiar, then read on…
“The system safety concept calls for a risk management strategy based on identification, analysis of hazards and application of remedial controls using a systems-based approach.”Harold E. Roland; Brian Moriarty (1990). System Safety Engineering and Management. John Wiley & Sons. ISBN 0471618160
“Functional safety is the part of the overall safety of a system or piece of equipment that depends on automatic protection operating correctly in response to its inputs or failure in a predictable manner (fail-safe). The automatic protection system should be designed to properly handle likely human errors, hardware failures and operational/environmental stress.”Wikipedia
Safe design is a process defined as the integration of hazard identification and risk assessment methods early in the design process to eliminate or minimise the risks of injury throughout the life of a structure being designed. It encompasses all design including facilities, hardware, systems, equipment, products, layout and configuration.Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner
Work Health & Safety
Australian Work Health & Safety law, or WHS, addresses both design and workplace, or occupational, safety. It’s a very powerful and elegant approach, and it yields a lot of useful content, whether you are in an Australian jurisdiction, or not.
