PES Seminar: Development of Safety Culture in Engineering Practice

Gary Johnson and Dr. Jin Jiang, IEEE London PES Chapter Chair Gary Johnson answering questions

The IEEE London PES Chapter hosted a seminar by Gary Johnson entitled “Development of Safety Culture in Engineering Practice” on 15 May 2017 at Western Engineering. Mr Johnson is an internationally recognized expert in safety-related instrumentation and control systems, safety and reliability analysis, and severe accident monitoring systems for nuclear power plants. His presentation discussed the importance of establishing safety culture in the work place by looking at several past severe nuclear accidents. In each case, investigators learned a lot of valuable lessons during post-accident analysis, and subsequently made operation of the systems safer through regulations, engineering safety analysis, and culture changes. He also explained some of his own personal principles of safety analysis for engineering systems.
