34th International System Safety Conference

August 8-12, 2016 | Renaissance Hotel at Sea World | Orlando, Florida, USA

Welcome to the 34th ISSC, the premiere international conference on system safety. The theme for ISSC 2016 is "Developing System Safety Engineers for the Future." The conference technical program is based on training and educating new System Safety Engineers with the focus on tutorials. A separate tutorial track has been established providing approximately 20 hours of basic system safety engineering and management (SSEM) training focused on the new System Safety Engineer. Topics include an overview of SSEM, hazard analysis techniques, MIL-STD-882E system safety process and tasks, and SAE ARP 4761 system safety process and hazard analysis techniques. The training is endorsed by the International System Safety Society and a certificate of completion will be provided. The Technical Program will also include other tutorials, workshops, and panels, which will include risk management for medical devices, advanced system safety engineering and management topics along with tutorials on managing system safety engineers. Tutorials will also include a manager’s guide to mentoring new SSEs, career progression of the SSE, and what the new SSE needs to know to be successful. Paper topics (sessions) will include general system safety engineering, human factors, accident and incident investigation, ground transportation system safety (highway and rail), and electrical and nuclear power system safety. Training sessions can also be provided by sponsors and exhibitors using their products with class rooms provided by the ISSC.
