Safety at work is a set of technical, medical, legal, psychological, pedagogical and other activities, by which are detected and eliminated hazards that threatened the lives and health of people at work and determined the measures, procedures and rules in order to eliminate or reduce these risks.

The purpose of safety is to create safe working conditions in order to prevent injury, occupational diseases and accidents at work or reducing any adverse consequences if the risk cannot be eliminated. Conducting safety is not limited only to occupational diseases, but seeks to prevent any illness or injury, but the greater attention is paid to occupational diseases.

In the working environment many influences are acting on the health and safety of workers. Consequences of adverse working conditions are injuries, occupational diseases, the burden of workers, and the cost to the employer... Safety engineers take care of human safety in operation. Adapting the work environment to man, and man to adapt to the working environment, safety engineer are seeking to reduce nuisance hazards at work and mitigate their consequences.

Safety engineers are establishing procedures, methods and tools for health and safety. Safety at work is mandatory and required by law. Safety engineers are applying legal rules in various fields of human activity, in everyday situations. In any company, especially if the company has more than 50 employees, the employer is obliged to employ the so-called, security experts.

Safety at work

Safety and health at work, can implement Bachelor Engineer of Safety at Work if it means: the act of making a risk assessment of all jobs in the working environment, making the study of the rights to the insurance period with enlarged duration, as well as the audit thereof; performing safety and health at work, health protection of employees: preventive examinations and testing of work equipment (machinery, equipment, facilities, installations, etc..) drafting guidelines for safe operation; tests work environment, chemical and physical hazards, microclimate, biological hazards, etc...

The basis for the implementation of safety is risk assessment. Hazard assessment is made in accordance to recognized methods and it is used to determine the existence of hazards, risk types and extent of the threat. Following the analysis are proposed measures for mitigation of hazards and implement identified control measures.

Fire protection

The basic objective of the program of study direction, Fire Protection, is to prepare students for the application of scientific and technical achievements in solving the problem of fire protection for the development and management of fire protection systems.

Specific objectives of the program are to acquire knowledge and skills in the analysis and assessment of the risks of fire and explosion, the development and application of methodologies, methods, tools and procedures in the management of the system of protection against fire and explosion, monitoring the fire protection, the expertise of fire and explosion, organization and management system, fire protection, planning and quality management systems for fire protection, strategic planning and development of fire protection systems, lifelong learning and the development of knowledge in the field of fire protection, innovation activities and teamwork.

Mastering the program, students acquire professional competence in the assessment and insurance of risks of explosion and fire, control in the field of fire and explosions, optimization and management of available resources in the system, fire protection, preparation of reports on the state of the fire and explosion, making plans and technical documentation in the field of fire and explosion, designing systems for surveillance, fire detection and fire fighting, organization and management of interventions, rescuing, evacuation and rehabilitation of fire and explosion, fire and explosion expertise, training and knowledge management in the field of fire protection and explosion, training, professional recruitment and skills development in the field of fire and explosion, making normative acts in the field of protection against fire and explosion, development methodology, methods and procedures for the management of fire protection, the development of methods and metrics to assess the effectiveness of protection of fire, project management and innovation in the fire protection, organization and management system, fire protection, application of information technology in engineering of fire protection.
