Safety Engineer

An ever important engineering field is the safety engineering practice, an applied science strongly related to systems engineering and the subset system safety engineering.  These engineers are tasked with assuring that a life-critical system behaves as needed even when pieces fail. 

Ideally, safety engineers take an early design of a system, analyze it to find what faults can occur, and then propose safety requirements in design specifications up front and changes to existing systems to make the system safer.  In an early design stage, often a fail-safe system can be made acceptably safe with a few sensors and some software to read them.  Probabilistic fault-tolerant systems can often be made by using more, but smaller and less-expensive pieces of equipment. 

Far too often, rather than actually influencing the design, safety engineers are assigned to prove that an existing, completed design is safe.  If a safety engineer then discovers significant safety problems late in the design process, correcting them can be very expensive. This type of error has the potential to waste large sums of money.

Sequence can help you meet your safety engineering requirements. 

We have been in the forefront recruiting and staffing in the safety engineering field. At Sequence, we know and understand the vital role safety engineers have in the construction, engineering and environmental industries. We are the premier executive recruiting and staffing firm committed to providing employment solutions to these major industries around the world. 

We work with clients that approach safety engineering from a proactive and proven process perspective, commonly knows as system safety.  This system safety philosophy, supported by the System Safety Society and many other organizations, is to be applied to complex and critical systems, such as commercial airliners, military aircraft, munitions and complex weapon systems, spacecraft and space systems, rail and transportation systems, air traffic control systems and more complex and safety-critical industrial systems.

The safety engineers we have recruited understand the proven system safety methods and techniques are to prevent, eliminate and control hazards and risks through designed influences by a collaboration of key engineering disciplines and product teams. Software safety is a fast growing field since modern systems functionality are increasingly being put under control of software.

The whole concept of system safety and software safety, as a subset of systems engineering, is to influence safety-critical systems designs by conducting several types of hazard analyses to identify risks and to specify design safety features and procedures to strategically mitigate risk to acceptable levels before the system is certified.

Sequence will find you finest safety engineer the first time, every time. 

Knowing and understanding the technical and professional nuances of the safety engineering vocation is paramount at Sequence.  Our team of experienced, highly skilled recruiters and staffing professionals has broad industry experience.  They know the safety engineering field.
