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 near misses are investigated to assure personnel are rarely hurt on the job. These rules are primarily driven by OSHA regulations. There are many considerations that can build safety into the design of a facility at very little cost. This course will share examples of simple things to consider 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.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Have an awareness of OSHA requirements
- Consider OSHA mechanical integrity requirements for non-hazardous chemical systems
- Recognize the effect of Quality Assurance on reliability and safety
- Recognize the effect of Management of Change on reliability and safety
