System safety provides many disciplined approaches to hazard identification and risk analysis. Risk has two components, severity and probability; both must be determined to assess risk. The analytical techniques presented in this module can be used to assess risk to employees, facilities, equipment, production, quality, and the environment. This module presents fifteen techniques from system safety practice. The module is intended for instructors already acquainted with system safety. Instructors may incorporate individual lessons into existing engineering courses or use the entire module to form the basis of a one-quarter or one-semester class in risk assessment and system safety (perhaps entitled 'hazard identification and risk assessment') open to students from any engineering major. It is also suitable for instructors in occupational and environmental safety and health. An important feature of this module is a collection of more than 400 presentation slides, including classroom examples and workshop problems drawn from professional practice. These lecture slides and practice problems (supported by this module) are the result of insights gained while teaching system safety, hazard identification, and risk assessment for more than fifteen years to unveristy students and practicing professionals.
