Safety “10x” series
This is a series of useful knowledge-based applications, which will be of interest to the practitioner and student of fields related to pure risk and safety.
Safety 101 – A compendium of risk and safety terms and their origins
Our first application, Safety 101 is a compendium of safety and risk terms and their origins. Available at the iTunes store since January 2010, this application was written by Professor Derek Viner because of the absence of dictionaries covering this field. The application contains some 200 terms of interest to both practitioners and students in these fields and succinct coverage of the main contributions of eleven published authors in the fields.
It is hoped that Safety 101 will help to stimulate debate about the terms and concepts used. To this end, we welcome suggestions and comments from users.
- August 2010. A revised application icon and a number of new terms have been added. This modification will be available soon on the iTune site as a free update.
- 18th April 2010. We added icons on function tabs and made some minor editorial changes
Safety 100 – Hazard Identification
