College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Design of Engineering Hazard Controls
This course addresses the application of scientific and engineering principles as well as methods to achieve optimum safety and health through the analysis and design of processes, equipment, products, facilities, operations and environments. Subjects will include; product design, plant layout, construction maintenance, pressure vessels and transportation vehicles and systems. These subjects will be discussed in relation to all regulatory requirements.

This course provides students with the basics on how to mitigate injury and minimize economic loss caused by illness and incidents. The course presents information on establishing priorities, collecting and evaluating data to help anticipate and identify problems, and explores methods and procedures to reduce or eliminate illness and incidents. The course brings to the student the broad spectrum of topics, specific hazards, best practices, control procedures and resources currently acknowledge in the field of Occupational Safety and Health.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Explain how to achieve safety through design, and the benefits of doing this.

2. Formulate general safety considerations in designing facilities, and select the significant codes and standards involved in building and facility layout.

3. Assess construction work practices, maintenance and equipment for safety considerations.

4. Select the codes governing boilers and unfired pressure vessels, and summarize the principles of inspecting this equipment as well as major safety considerations and hazard control.5. Compare different types of hoisting apparatus and cranes, and describe corresponding safety rules for their safe use/operation.

6. Compare types of transportation vehicles and systems, and formulate methods to reduce hazards associated with them.

7. Summarize the general safety requirements for operating heavy-duty equipment, and explain safety issues related to their maintenance.

8. Assess the hazards and sources of potential exposure in manufacturing and production activities and in automated lines, systems, and processes and compose and apply corresponding injury prevention strategies.

9. Assess administrative controls, safety procedures, and mechanical safeguards aimed at reducing hazards and incidence rates.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

10. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter. (Effective July 1, 2013)

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
