Computer Engineering Safety 

Course Overview

 

Health and Safety considerations must always come first when working with computer equipment. The level of danger varies with the type of equipment and type of work being done; therefore, it is very important to be aware of the risks and take appropriate precautionary measures when working with equipment that has the potential to cause serious injury. 

 

When working with computers and other electrical equipment the potential for electrocution and electrical burns is real. Therefore, it is better to think about safety first than later. Always follow the safety guidelines and warnings that are posted on various equipment, workplace related safety policies and procedures, and government regulations. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. So do your part, and when in doubt consult an expert. Never take chances.

When working with computer technology there are health and safety concerns that need to be considered to create a safe working environment. Here are some areas of concern:

  • Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). Repetition of tasks causes damage to muscles, tendons, and nerves in the body. This can happen when using a computer. 

  • Using proper methods to move heavy computer equipment to avoid back injury.

  • Encouraging short breaks to reduce stress & eye strain when working with a computer display extensively.
