Topic: Safety Management Systems in the Aerospace Industry.
Aerospace manufacturing is a high-technology industry that produces aircraft, guided missiles, space vehicles, aircraft engines, propulsion units, and related parts. Most of the industry is geared toward governmental work but some companies like Boeing and Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation (GAS) focus on commercial or private jet manufacturing. This program will provide an inside look at this specialized industry and its health and safety concerns. This interactive presentation will allow us not only hear about a cutting edge and competitive industry but to ask questions on the health and safety issues unique to the aerospace industry.
