Teaching and learning got a far deeper meaning when the AIRSC ACADEMY OF SAFETY AND DISASTER MANAGEMENT was set-up. Mr. R. Padmanabhan, a great visionary and dynamic leader, laid the foundation of the institute that went on to win the respect and admiration of students as well as other Institutes. The high standard of education imparted at the different Institutes in the fields of Safety Engineering, Safety Management has proved to be the lifeline for many successful careers
Objectives of AIRSC ACADEMY OF SAFETY AND DISASTER MANAGEMENT
To develop high academic standards and quality of education for its programs so as to extend limitations beyond traditional classroom situations.
The increasing number of fire disasters in Railways, Air ways, Shipping, Refineries, Petrochemical Plants, Industries and other strategic places is causing tragic loss of precious lives and large scale destruction of property. This confirms the necessity for Fire Fighting Engineers.
Safety is one of the simplest forms of energy known to man, Ever since man learnt to use it; it has been used for a variety of purpose. In the early days it was used to safeguard one from cold, as a source of light and as a medium of cooking food. Today, we see fire being used for a number of purposes. However, fire, like many other boons, is hazardous. This necessitates due care in its use. Invaluable lives are lost every year due to inadvertent fires. Similarly, property worth crores of rupees is destroyed by uncontrolled fire incidents. A number of industrial units suffer huge losses due to fire. Hence, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of fire and methods of prevention of losses from it, for the safe working of any industry.
Safety professionals play an important role in the safety of all forms of Transportation, Railroads, Aviation, Shipping Corporations, Oil and Gas Pipelines, Chemical Plants and many Engineering involves the identification, Evaluation, and Control of hazards in man-machine system (Products, machines, Equipment, or facilities) that contain a potential to cause inquiry to people or damage to property Safety management consists of a set or safety programme elements, policies, and procedures, that manage the conduct of safety activity. Safety Engineering and Safety Management make up the integrated whole. While Safety Engineering can be viewed as being the administrative or software side of such prevention. Safety Management provides the structure within which the techniques of safety engineering are applied.
Industries worldwide are trying to either eliminate the release of materials that can harm the public or damage the environment, or recover and recycle excess materials for environmental conservation. An environmental Safety Officer can help in regulating these processes. The officer should have extensive knowledge or environmental standards, laws and regulations. Environment at problems exist in many countries and industries. Engineers may work in such diverse industries as Water Supply and Drainage, Irrigation, Mining, Power and Petrochemical and other Heavy Industries.
