A list of general health and safety factfiles provided by the IET
The following IET factfiles discuss a range of health and safety issues including colour vision defects, advice on interconnecting mains powered equipment, and electrical safety - a perspective based on incidents.
This document outlines the principle of health and safety risk management for engineers and technicians.
An introduction to colour vision defects and engineering.
The Joint Institution Group on Safety & Risk (formerly the Inter-Institutional Group on Health and Safety) is responsible for coordinating the efforts of the engineering institutions in common areas of health and safety policy.
The mission of the Group is to work together by consensus to promote action and enhance awareness and knowledge of health and safety risk issues in the interests of the engineering profession.
This paper by the Joint Institution Group on Safety Risk (formally the Inter-Institutional Group on Health and Safety) highlights the essential and growing role of engineering in supporting health and safety risk management and economic sustainability, listing some key steps for engineers, managers and government to consider.
The Joint Institution Group on Safety Risk (formally the Inter-Institutional Group on Health and Safety) has produced a schedule of guidance describing in broad terms the continued health and safety risk assessment and mitigation learning that is likely to be required as part of a professional’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
This paper by the Joint Institution Group on Safety Risk (formally the Inter-Institutional Group on Health and Safety) identifies the key issues for professional engineers in health and safety risk communication.
The teaching of safety, health and environmental risk (SHE) issues to undergraduates studying engineering courses is an important part of the education of future engineers, and is generally thought to be an area insufficiently covered in current courses.
