Come along to get an introduction to the New Zealand Society for Safety Engineering and learn about Safety by Design from an industry expert. This presentation focusses on the underlying principles so that it is equally applicable to all engineering disciplines. The session will include a number of case studies, including an injury caused by a firewood processing machine that was the first upstream-duty prosecution under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
