Seminari del Màster Universitari de Salut Laboral (Prevenció de Riscs Laborals)

El pròxim divendres 10 de març el Màster Universitari de Salut Laboral (Prevenció de Riscs Laborals) de la UIB organitza el seminari “Safety science some past and recent research areas including construction”, que serà impartida pel Sr. Paul Swüste.
El seminari tindrà lloc a l'aula 4 de l'edifici Mateu Orfila, a les 16 hores i serà impartit en anglès.

Aquest seminari ha estat finançat per la convocatòria dels “Ajuts per a la participació de professorat estranger en Programes Oficials de Màster de la Universitat de les Illes Balears del Programa d'Impuls i Internacionalització per a Estudis de Postgrau de la Universitat de les Illes Balears 2016-17”.


Safety science some past and recent research areas including construction


As a member of the Safety Science Group at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, Dr. Swuste will talk about predictability of accidents. The argument will be that current theories, models and metaphors are too general, or too broadly defined for any prediction. We only can use them for analysis after accidents of disasters have occurred. Dr. Swuste is presently involved in two projects related to process indicators, both for high-tech-high-hazard sectors, as for occupational accidents. He will talk about these two projects too. Although at Mallorca there is not high-tech-high-hazard industries (e.g. high speed trains, nuclear power plants, process industries etc.), the indicators for high-tech-high-hazard sectors can be relevant from a theoretical point of view. However, for the specific context of Mallorca, it is clear that occupational accidents are relevant from a practical point of view.
