Safety Engineering is an engineering discipline that applies engineering principles in order to design and implement systems with acceptable levels of safety. Safety Engineers evaluate and review specifications of machinery to ensure they meet safety regulations and are safe to operate. They design and implement safety programs to prevent and decrease the possibility of human error in engineered environments.
