On completion of this block course, participants will:
- understand risk, and the factors influencing perception and acceptability of risk;
- be able to give definitions of safety-related terminology and discuss how the use of terminology varies between countries and industrial sectors;
- have an understanding of typical safety-critical systems lifecycles and the roles of the major groups of techniques within the lifecycle.
This block course provides an introduction to the basic concepts and principles of system safety, including risk, hazard, accidents, and failure, and techniques for safety analysis and assessment. It also provides a brief overview of related material, such as legal issues, management of safety critical projects, and human factors.
Topics include: - Introduction to accidents, hazards and risk; - Formal definitions of safety engineering terminology; - Legal and moral context; - System lifecycles view of safety activities; - The concept of Safety Risk and making decisions about risk; - Introduction to Safety Cases; - Overview of safety analysis techniques; - Safety-critical software; - Introduction to Safety Cases; - Introduction to Safety Management
In the end, participants have to complete an assessment approximately over the next six weeks which results in the final grade for this course.
