What does a Graduate Safety Engineer do?

Safety engineers develop procedures and system designs that protect people from illness and injury and property from damage. They combine their engineering and health and safety knowledge to ensure that chemicals, machinery, software, furniture, and other products do not harm people or damage property. They maintain and apply their knowledge of current health and safety policies, regulations, and industrial processes and review plans and specifications of new machinery and equipment to ensure they meet safety standards.

Safety engineers identify and correct potential hazards by inspecting facilities, machinery, and safety equipment and evaluate various industrial control mechanisms’ effectiveness. They ensure buildings or products comply with health and safety regulations, paying careful attention after conducting an inspection that requires changes. They direct and oversee the installation of safety devices on machinery, and review employee safety programs, recommending necessary improvements as needed. Safety engineers need a bachelor's degree in environmental safety or engineering.
