Aim

The goal of Sustainable Development in industry should be: 1) Achieving safety in production, products, and usage of these products, 2) ensuring human health, 3) protecting the environment and, 4) running the world ecosystem in acceptable steady-state conditions with respect to materials, energy and population. Therefore safety is an important part of sustainability. In fact safety is efficiency and brings profit.

The objective of the course is to give the students an understanding of analysis principles and concepts and give the training in how to apply their abilities to improve human safety, to pro¬tect the environment, and to improve process and system chain quality and productivity. In addition they could evaluate economic risks and assess risk as a result of uncertainties by using special software.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • GAfter completed course the students should be able to:
  • LO1: Apply risk analysis techniques and tools as well as use risk assessment to identify hazardous scenarios as causes of loss in a system or an organization.
  • LO2: Analyze and improve the reliability and maintenance of an item.
  • LO3: Use risk analysis in decision making under uncertainty situations as well as in projects.
  • LO4: Being able to analyze and improve work place safety as well as ergonomic aspects in a production system.
  • LO5: Being able to handle and manage risks in the whole supply chain as well as controlling chaos in logistic system by using cybernetics.
  • LO6 Critically analyze and design a risk management plan for a production system or an organization.

Content

The course covers the following topics:

  • Basic concepts of hazard, risk, safety, reliability, maintenance, etc and how to analyze as well as handle them.
  • Training in the use of risk analysis and reliability tools.
  • How to use risk analysis in uncertain situations as well as in projects.
  • Supply chain risk management
  • Human factors in risk analysis
  • Risk management in complex systems
  • Emergency planning and responses

Organisation

The course is problem oriented there the main part is a project work where the students cooperate in small groups. The group work is also performed in work shops and in a seminar. Further will the course consist on a written "knowledeg test" and a study visit.




Literature

The literature consists of a book in two volumes with the title: Loss Prevention & Safety - A Practical Risk Management Handbook.

Lecture presentations as well as work shop descriptions.


Examination

Project based examination which include written project report and presentation, seminar, work shops and a written knowledge test. The grading scale is based on TH: 5, 4, 3 and failed.
