Changes have occurred over the past decades in how safety is viewed at industrial facilities. At one time, employee deaths were considered inevitable at major facilities. Now, even loss time accidents and even near misses are investigated to assure personnel are rarely hurt on the job. These rules are primarily driven by OSHA regulations. But there is much more to consider at very little cost to build safety into the design of a facility. Examples are shown of simple things that can be considered that provide a safer environment for the personnel, and a more reliable facility. This can be considered an ethics course as well as a safety course.
