IEEE STARS: HEALTH AND SAFETY

Health and safety is one of the oldest engineering concerns. Sanitation engineering and public health drastically improved the quality of life amongst ancient peoples, through the construction of aqueducts and sewage drainage systems. Working with machinery can greatly simplify certain tasks, but also leaves room for dangerous workplace accidents. With the Industrial Revolution, machinery became much larger and more complex, and the need for safety became a much more prominent concern. Topics in this category deal with the concern for human safety in and out the workplace and the general well-being and healthiness of the population.
