Students will use the system safety techniques taught in this course to perform a risk
assessment of a current product or process and develop a written report. The risk assessment
will include identification of hazards and recommendations for risk reduction. Grading will be
based on how completely hazards are identified and if multiple methods from this course are
used to identify hazards and assess risk. Hazards should be documented through photos or other
graphics. Each student will complete an individual report. The report will include a separate title
page that lists the course (i.e. IENG 461 System Safety I), student’s name, and report title. The
remainder of the report (not including the title page) will be at least 4 pages and 1200 words in
length. Each student should organize his/her paper in 4 sections
1- Introduction – Should answer why the student chose to analyze this product or process.
2- Methods – Should answer how the student analyzed this product or process (i.e. what
system safety techniques were used and how). Include discussion of which part of the
hazard control hierarchy is being used in risk reduction suggestions.
3- Results/Conclusions – Should explain how the product or process could be improved
from a safety perspective.
4- References – List any references (including websites) necessary for the analysis (e.g.
standards, regulations, journal articles).
