Industries and organizations across the world are facing stiff challenges in meeting the safety and health requirements of the stakeholders. Some of the important reasons are (i) poor preparedness, (ii) absence of trained personnel due to low or no safety education at university level, (iii) lack of scientific research, and (iv) weak industry institute partnership. Upon assessing the present status of safety engineering, management and analytics, and to cater the stakeholders’ needs & requirements, IIT Kharagpur, being an internationally recognized technical institution of India having a number of experts with proven knowledge, expertise, and consulting & research experiences in relevant areas, has established the Centre of Excellence in Safety Engineering and Analytics (CoE-SEA) in July 2020.
VISION: The CoE-SEA embodies to act as the hub for learning & practice, knowledge creation, standardization, repository, and dissemination of knowledge and information covering the broad domain of safety engineering & management, occupational and environmental health, human factors & industrial ergonomics, disaster management, and related analytics.
MISSION: (i) To become global benchmark for education, training, consulting and research, (ii) To create national level repository of safety and related data, (iii) To be a continuous source of support to industries and service organizations, (iv) To develop highly qualified human resources through post graduate and PhD programs for strategic level positions in industries, (v) To build in competencies in working professionals through outreach programs, (vi) To develop and implement industry 4.0/5.0 technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual and augmented reality, and internet of things (IOT) based solutions for accident prevention, (vii) To develop model organizations as the world benchmark, (viii) To develop industry consortium of major, medium and small scale industries for effective industry-academia interactions and providing sustainable solutions.
WHAT DO WE OFFER?: Education, Research, Consultancy, Training, Product, Software & Services, Internship, etc.
Greetings from IIT Kharagpur and welcome to the Centre of Excellence in Safety Engineering and Analytics (CoE-SEA).
The CoE-SEA is one of the important centers of IIT Kharagpur under the Institute of Eminence (IoE) Scheme. It aims to become the world leader in education, research, outreach, and technology transfer in the areas of safety engineering, management and analytics, and the destination for the world reputed professors, researchers, scientists, technocrats, management consultants, industry giants, and socially relevant entrepreneurs.
The CoE-SEA is looking for bright young PDF, student interns, academic leaders and industry professionals (world-wide) for conducting cutting edge research and outreach programs in all domains of safety engineering & management, occupational health, safety analytics, risk assessment, ergonomics and human factors.
The CoE invites industry and service organizations to join the industry consortium and help the CoE in achieving the objectives. The modes of help could be through partnership, sponsorship, or associateship. The guiding principle for deciding on the partnership, sponsorship, or associateship will be based on the industry type & brand, and the extent of support (e.g., funding, expertise sharing, etc.). In return, the CoE will support the member companies in developing the knowledge base and services through research, consultancy, training, and other outreach programs. The CoE also will help the MSMEs towards improving their competency in enhancing the safety and occupational health of employees at the workplaces.
