Overview

Overview

Characteristics of safety and health.

What are the accreditation requirements for safety, health and environmental programs according to ABET?

Characteristics of security.

What are the learning outcomes forhomeland security.

Is there a way to tie the two fields together?

Exploring the evolving relationships between safety and security

Safety and Health

“The safety of the people shall be the highest law.”

Marcus Tullius Cicero

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

Safety the ultimate connector

Safety…. the ultimate connector!

How to define safety as a profession

How to define Safety?…as a profession…

  • “They use qualitative and quantitative analysis of simple and complex products, systems, operations, and activities to identify hazards. They evaluate the hazards to identify what events can occur and the likelihood of occurrence, severity of results, risk (a combination of probability and severity), and cost.”

  • “Besides knowledge of a wide range of hazards, controls, and safety assessment methods, safety professionals must have knowledge of physical, chemical, biological and behavioral sciences, mathematics, business, training and educational techniques, engineering concepts, and particular kinds of operations (construction, manufacturing, transportation, and other like industries).”

    • From BCSP.org (Dec 5, 2010)

Hazard vs risk

Hazard vs. Risk

  • A hazardis any source of potential damage, harm or adverse health effects on something or someone under certain conditions at work.

  • Risk is the chance or probability that a person will be harmed or experience an adverse health effect if exposed to a hazard. It may also apply to situations with property or equipment loss.

Abet asac sh e standards

ABET ASAC SH&E Standards

  • Anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and develop control strategies for hazardous conditions and work practices.

  • Demonstrate the application of business and risk management concepts.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental aspects of safety, industrial hygiene, environmental science, fire science, hazardous materials, emergency management, ergonomics and/or human factors.

  • Design and evaluate safety, health, and/or environmental programs.

Abet asac sh e standards1

ABET ASAC SH&E Standards

  • Apply adult learning theory to safety training methodology.

  • Identify and apply applicable standards, regulations, & codes.

  • Conduct accident investigations and analyses.

  • Apply principles of safety and health in a non-academic setting through an intern, cooperative, or supervised experience.

Safety summarized

Safety Summarized

  • Safety is a social science profession that applies risk management tools and concepts to protect people, property and the environment from hazards & risks.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Homeland security

Homeland Security

  • “The assessment and management of risk underlies the full spectrum of our homeland security activities… We must apply a risk-based framework across all homeland security efforts in order to identify and assess potential hazards (including their downstream effects), determine what levels of relative risk are acceptable, and prioritize and allocate resources among all homeland security partners… We as a Nation must organize and help mature the profession of risk management by adopting common risk analysis principles and standards …”

    • pg 41 of the US National Strategy for Homeland Security.

Hs education standards

HS Education Standards

  • Intelligence- A systematic process of collection, analysis, and dissemination of information in support of national, state, and/or local policy or strategy.

  • Law & Policy - Legal and policy formulations that provide the basic direction of HS means and objectives and establish a context for homeland security within the broader purview of national security.

  • Risk Analysis - A systematic method of identifying the infrastructures, and key resources (e.g., CI/KR) of the US, the threats (i.e., strategic, political, economic, technological, or cultural) to those CI/KR, and the vulnerability of the US to those threats in such a way as to be able to quantify threats and their consequences to the US for the purpose of developing appropriate countermeasures.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Hs education standards1

HS Education Standards

  • Emergency Management - The process of coordinating available resources to deal with emergencies effectively, thereby saving lives, avoiding injury or illness, and minimizing economic losses. This protection process involves four phases that are reinforcing and mutually dependent: preparedness, response, mitigation, and recovery.

  • Critical Infrastructure - Systems and resources, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the US that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and resources would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of these.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Hs education standards2

HS Education Standards

  • Strategic Planning- The process of defining an organization’s strategy (a long term plan of action designed to achieve a particular goal or objective) or direction and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy, including its capital, its technology and its human resources.

  • Terrorism- The threat of violence, individual acts of violence, or a campaign of violence designed primarily to instill fear. Terrorism is violence for effect: not only and sometimes not at all for the effect on the actualvictims of the terrorists’ cause. Fear is the intendedeffect, not the by-product of terrorism.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Hs education standards3

HS Education Standards

  • Strategic Communication – An effects-based approach of synchronized themes and messages designed to enable the implementation of the national elements of power; to include but limited to diplomatic, intelligence, military, economic, financial, information and law enforcement, toward the accomplishment of national and homeland security objectives.

  • Environmental Security - A process for effectively responding to changing environmental conditions that have the potential to destabilize the political economyor governmental infrastructure of a nation or regionwhich reduces peace and stability and thereby affectsUS national security.

Homeland security summarized

Homeland Security Summarized

  • HS is a social science profession that applies risk management tools and concepts to protect people, property and the environment from hazards, risks and threats.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Shared principles

Shared Principles

  • Both use risk management principles and concepts; pre-emptive andanticipatory.

  • Both target protection of people property & the environment to man-made and natural threats, risks, & hazards.

  • Both work with the field of emergency management and preparedness.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Shared principles1

Shared Principles

  • Both are broad field, applied social sciences.

  • Both are central to thesmooth functioning of theU.S. economy.

  • Both are central to the ongoingstability of critical infrastructure.

  • Both require ongoing CQI and exercises to be “good”.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Differences

Differences?

  • Whereas SH&E typically operates at the worksite, HS typically operates at the national level….. But……

  • OSHA / NIOSH / CDC support community health and safety programs.

  • DHS believes that like all emergencies, community preparedness is the key to national security.

ASSE Central Florida Chapter Meeting

J Ramsay, PhD, MA CSP


Safety security

Safety & Security

  • Both are “human centered” activities that use technology and systems to obtain objectives.

  • And…. both run the risk of complacency and ineffectiveness due to a poor culture.

Modern health safety

Modern Health & Safety

  • Health Promotion = an orchestrated series of activities designed to facilitate behavior change and lifestyle choices in order to optimize health.

    • Application => individual, organization, community at the worksite, or at home.

  • Health Protection = typically involves worksite programs designed to maintain state & federal compliance to mandated programs concerning SH&E, work practices and the minimization of workplace hazards.

    • Application => involves industrial hygiene, safety, environmental and occupational health specialists, on individual and organization-wide basis.
