Safety through design is not a precise science. Since it is not a “one size fits all” type of effort, it will require customization within a company. But, the basic concepts of early involvement in the design stage and careful evaluation of hazards and risk assessment are universally applicable. Safety Through Design focuses on providing significant insights into the different concepts of design, and their potential integration and application in a company's operations.
This important textbook on the leading edge of safety theory and implementation teaches students how personnel at each level of engineering should be given responsibility for building safety into the job, right through production. It demonstrates how responsibility extends to product design, machine design, plant layout and condition of premises, selection and specification of materials, production planning, and duties of managers and employees. A great text for safety and engineering students alike.
