Safety Engineering

The term "safety engineering" refers to any act of accident prevention by a person qualified in the field. Safety engineering is often reactionary to adverse events, also described as "incidents", as reflected in accident statistics. This arises largely because of the complexity and difficulty of collecting and analysing data on "near misses".

Design of Commercial Building to Mitigate Terrorist Attacks
8 PDH - The purpose of this course is to introduce concepts that can help building designers and building owners to mitigate the threat of terrorist attacks on new buildings. This course specifically addresses four high-population, private-sector building types: commercial office, retail, multi-family residential, and light industrial, although many of the concepts presented are also applicable to other building types and/or existing buildings. The main focus of the material is explosive attacks, but the course does also address measures to protect against chemical, biological and radiological attacks.

Building Securities Initiatives: Energy Savings & Trade-offs
2 PDH - In this course the student will learn about mold basics, health effects, prevention, remediation, personal protective equipment and sampling methods.

Structural Engineering Aspects of World Trade Center Collapse
2 PDH - This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills: Structural description of the north and south towers of the World Trade Center, Key findings of the NIST investigation on the sequence of events from aircraft impact to building collapse, and Recommendations from the investigation.

 

Security Engineering

Security engineering is a specialized field of engineering that deals with the development of detailed engineering plans and designs for security features, controls and systems. It is similar to other systems engineering activities in that its primary motivation is to support the delivery of engineering solutions that satisfy pre-defined functional and user requirements, but with the added dimension of preventing misuse and malicious behavior. These constraints and restrictions are often asserted as a security policy.
