European Systems Safety Society Competition 2018

European Systems Safety Society Competition 2018

Win a 3D printer for your school! This competition is open for Year 7 and Year 12 UK students. Closing date: 30th November 2018.

The Challenge:

We challenge groups of pupils to work together to:

  • identify a hazardous situation (new or existing, funny or serious);
  • explain the likely consequences of potential hazardous events (there may be several different consequences, each with a different severity and/or likelihood);
  • assess the risk of each different outcome (based on likelihood and severity);
  • propose solutions to reduce risk (if necessary) by making the hazardous event less likely and/or reducing the severity of its consequences;
  • distil their thoughts via art or IT into a poster, concept solution, PowerPoint presentation, animated cartoon or video; and then
  • email their Entry Form and upload their results to the ESSS website for scrutiny by the judging panel.
