The Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) in association with the University of Liverpool established a project to incorporate risk education into the curriculum of an undergraduate engineering degree course. Integrating risk education into the curriculum has involved defining risk education as a set of learning outcomes, and designing a tool to ascertain students’ awareness of risk issues and key concepts. Teaching materials are being developed that use real accident case studies, student interaction and team-building exercises to enhance students’ understanding of the concepts of hazard and risk.
Level of Education: Continuing vocational education and training
