This course examines the principles of safety risk management, focusing on physical hazards. Students will learn about methods of risk identification assessment and control applied to physical hazards including: manual handling, noise, electricity, chemical hazards, as well as learning about issues relating to major hazards and disasters. Students will be asked to apply risk management techniques to these hazards, and will have the opportunity to share and discuss their own experiences of managing risks. The course will also explore different theories of accident causation.
