Where the STEM jobs are

Technical Safety covers a wide range of activities with the common aim of improving the health and safety of those at a facility and the surrounding areas. Activities include:
This is sometimes termed ‘Formal Safety Assessment’ (FSA), and includes all safety or risk assessment activities: qualitative studies, such as HAZID and HAZOP: consequence modelling studies, such as gas dispersion and fire modelling and Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA).
This term used for the design of the safety systems that are required on the installation. It includes Mitigation Systems, such as Firewater Systems (which are sometimes termed ‘Loss Control’ Systems); as well as activities such as Hazardous Area Classification; preparation of escape route drawings; dispersion analysis; and waste management. Once it has been decided which systems are required on a facility, then the engineering of these facilities must be carried out, and must be included in the Safety Design Plan.
This covers assessment of the various aspects that affect the environment that a person works in: lighting, temperature, wind chill, noise, vibration etc., and design of measures to improve those aspects.
Human Factors addresses the design of systems and facilities taking into account the interaction of the people who will operate it, improving ergonomics and minimising the potential for human error.
