Safety & Health For Engineers

2 Days / 1.4 CEUs

Engineers have moral and legal "safety, health, and environmental" responsibilities to employers, workers, product users and the public. They also have an important role in the product quality and economic competitiveness of companies employing them. It makes good economic sense to incorporate "safety and health" activities in engineering practices to meet the moral and legal requirements.

Most engineers graduate with little formal "safety and health" education and "pick up" some knowledge while working in the industry. This is unfortunate since the engineer can greatly contribute to "safety and health" in the workplace by having a basic knowledge of the fundamental concepts of "safety and health," hazards in the workplace and safeguards and controls needed to improve safety and loss prevention.

What You Will Learn:

  • The importance of "Safety and Health" for engineers
  • Fundamental Concepts
  • Laws, Regulations and Standards
  • Safety Programs, Accident Investigations and Auditing
  • Process Safety Management Overview
  • Selection and Management of Contractors
  • Incident Investigation
  • Source of Safety and Health Reference Materials Facilities

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the methods and priorities of controlling industrial hazards
  • Explain the elements and purpose of an effective safety program
  • Explain the differences between regulatory standards and industry consensus standards
  • List typical hazards and safeguards related to machine guarding, electrical equipment, high noise/vibration, chemicals and other typical industrial safety concerns
  • Perform a Job Hazard Analysis
  • Utilize safety and health reference materials to obtain required task specific safety information.
Conducting A Safety Audit

1 Day / 0.7 CEUs

This course will present key issues for conducting effective safety and health audits. It will begin by defining audits and their role and comparing them to other essential safety management components such as inspections. It will then summarize how to set objectives and conduct the planning and design of audits. Effective techniques for auditing and the writing findings will be covered in depth. Also covered will be the management of audit recommendations. OSHA's policy actions on audits will be summarized and how this policy may affect audits and other compliance management issues.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the role of audits in safety program management
  • Establish objectives--compliance and/or best practice
  • Plan and design the safety audit
  • Gather information and interviewing techniques
  • Evaluate written programs versus actual practice
  • Establish findings and prepare the report
  • Learn to make recommendations to management
  • Discuss OSHA's policy on audits
Emergency Planning And Response

1 Day / 0.7 CEUs

Webster defines an emergency as an unforeseen combination of circumstances or the resulting state that calls for immediate action. An emergency can and does happen anywhere. Yet general businesses don't put emergency pre-planning at the top of the list. We assume that if something happens, we call 911 and they will take care of it.

All industries whether they are the traditional manufacturers of large quantities of materials or the new goods and service industries have the survival of their enterprise in common. Competition has driven our industries from a market-reactive to aggressive proactive planning of manufacturing facilities, locations, and activities based on a number of fiscal parameters. This course provides a basic understanding of the fundamental industrial emergency pre-planning and potential avoidance.

Attendees of this seminar will learn and practice skills necessary to select sections of their facility with highest potential risk and pre-plan them. Investigation of the hazards is the first step to eliminating them. The remainder of pre-planning is directed to optimization of response resources. Attendees are encouraged to bring facility information, layout, etc. for use as class projects.

Intended Audience: This course is designed for supervisors, ESH professionals, facility engineering staff, safety committee members, and others who may respond to accidents or incidents, or who may be responsible for reporting on them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate their facility for emergency potential
  • Estimate resource needs required to reduce risk to acceptable levels
  • Conduct a needs based "GAP" analysis
  • Produce an integrated emergency response plan
  • Exercise to plan to improve it
Process Safety Management

1 Day / 0.7 CEUs

This seminar will overview both the concepts and regulatory requirements of process safety management.
