The aim of the subject is to introduce with comprehension apprehension of hazards related to technical and technologic processes. The subject is aimed above all at hazards related to chemical and power plants, especially nuclear power plants, where the question of potential hazards and safety is one of the priorities. Last but not least within the scope of the subject students improve their self and presentation abilities, new trends of the branch are presented.

Students will be able to:

  • distinguish terms: danger, hazard, threat
  • know difference between hazard and sense of risk
  • estimate hazards of chemical and power production
  • gain knowledge about new trends of power engineering, basic knowledge of toxicology, material engineering, safety and other branches
  • simulate simple hazardous situations by means of freeware ALOHA
  • principles of evaluation of safety, lifetime and reliability of power and chemical production
  • work separately and also in groups, present their ideas

The student must obtain at least 50% points from ongoing activities - small on-going tests, group work during classes, papers, attendance at seminars, excursions, etc. At the same time, it is necessary either during the course of the lecture to present a short essay on a chosen topic agreed by the teacher by the end of the calendar year in which the subject is taught, has developed a separate project in a sufficient quality. Instructions for drawing up the project are delivered to students during the course. The report and the project are met if the min. 25 points (max. 50).
