Safety, Health, and the Environment in the Engineering Curricula: The Institute for Safety Through Design Donald S. Bloswick, Wayne C. Christensen, Robert B. Roemer University of Utah/National Safety Council/University of Utah

There appears to be a need for the consideration of safety, health, and environmental issues in the design process. In response to this need, the National Safety Council Institute for Safety Through Design was established in 1995. The mission of this organization is to reduce the risk of injury, illness, death, and environmental damage by integrating decisions affecting safety, health, and the environment in all stages of the design process. One priority of this organization is the development of safety and health related material which can be integrated into the undergraduate engineering curriculum. A symposium was held in 1996 and another is planned for 1997 to bring together industry, government, and academic representatives to exchange information relating to safety, health, and environmental issues in the design process.
