The course provides an introduction to safety risk management with a focus on issues in human performance. Basic processes in risk management and safety are introduced, including the risk management framework, and concepts of injury and hazard control. Models for managing workplace safety are introduced as these underlie the management systems for other types of risk, and are a useful frame for a consideration of human factors in safety. Students will evaluate conceptual issues surrounding a range of hazards where human interaction with systems is paramount, and consider their measurement, monitoring, and risk management strategies. Commonly employed hazard control mechanisms, which are relevant to human performance will also be evaluated.
