Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student, after absolving the course, will be equiped by elementary competences for understanding industrial risks. He/she will be able to identify basic risks as well acute as chronic, corresponding to chemical substances, physical processes, height, pressure, energy and mass transfer and other typical processes in industry.

Teaching methods

Summary

Industrial risks as a phenomenon accompanying technological development. Chronic and acute risks, chemical risks, physical risks, biological risks, stress. Historical case studies of major accidens: Bhopal, Flixborough, Feyzin, Piper Alfa, Mexico, Chernobyl, Toullouse. Methods of industrial risk analysis, deterministic and probabilistic approaches, indexing, screening and complex methods of risk analysis. Risk management in industry, OSHAS, legislation in EU and the Czech Republic.
