Safety

Occupational Health and Safety is a set of technical, medical, legal, psychological, pedagogical and other activities which help to detect and eliminate hazards that endanger the lives and health of people at work and determine the measures, procedures and rules in order to eliminate or reduce these risks.

The purpose of occupational health and safety is to create safe working conditions in order to prevent injury, occupational diseases and accidents at work, i.e. to reduce any harmful consequence when the risk cannot be eliminated. This is not limited only to occupational diseases; it seeks to prevent any illness or injury, while the greater attention is paid to occupational diseases.

There are many factors within the working environment which influence workers' health and safety. Consequences of adverse working conditions are injuries, occupational diseases - the burden of workers as well as the cost to the employer. Occupational health and safety engineers take care of safety at work. By adapting the work environment to man, and vice versa, occupational health and safety engineers are seeking to reduce unpleasant hazards at work and mitigate their consequences.

Occupational health and safety engineers are establishing procedures, methods and tools for health and safety at work. Safety at work is mandatory and required by law. Safety engineers are applying legal rules within the various fields of human activity, in everyday situations. In any company, especially if the company that has more than 50 employees, the employer is obliged to employ the so-called safety expert.

Occupational health and safety

A Bachelor Engineer of Occupational Health and Safety can ensure safety at work only if it includes: making a risk assessment of all jobs in the working environment, performing safety and health at work, ensuring health protection of employees, e.g. preventive examinations and testing of work equipment (machinery, equipment, facilities, installations, etc..) drafting guidelines for safety at work; testing the work environment, chemical and physical hazards, microclimate, biological hazards, etc.

The basis for the implementation of safety at work is risk assessment. This assessment is made by employing recognized methods and it is used to determine the existence of hazards, risk types and extent of the threat. This risk analysis is followed by proposed hazards mitigation measures their implement control.

Fire protection

The basic objective of this study course is to prepare students for the application of scientific and technical achievements in solving of fire protection problem as well as for the fire protection systems development and management.

Specific objectives of the course are acquiring knowledge and skills related to the analysis and assessment of the fire and explosion risks, the development and application of methodologies, methods, tools and procedures within the fire and explosion protection systems management, monitoring the fire protection system, fire and explosion expertise, fire protection system organization and management, fire protection system quality management, strategic planning and development of fire protection systems, lifelong learning in the field of fire protection, innovation activities and teamwork.

Upon the completion of this study course, students acquire professional competence in these fields: fire and explosion risks assessment and insurance, optimization and management of available resources within the fire protection system, drafting reports on the fire and explosion situation, making plans and providing the technical documentation in the field of fire and explosion protection, designing systems for surveillance, fire detection and fire fighting, organization and management of interventions, rescuing, evacuation and rehabilitation of fire and explosion affected areas, fire and explosion expertise, fire protection and explosion training and knowledge management; training, professional recruitment and skills development in the field of fire and explosion, making normative acts in the field of protection against fire and explosion, methodology, methods and procedures for the management of fire protection development, the development of methods and metrics to assess the effectiveness of fire protection system, project management and innovation in the fire protection system, fire protection system organization and management, application of information technology in fire protection engineering.
