The Institute of Industrial Engineering and Safety Management Systems
We are the professional and qualifying body for those involved in Industrial Engineering, Fire and Safety Management Systems
Who We Are
The Institute of Industrial Engineering and Safety Management Systems (IIESMS) is a non-profit, non-governmental, non-political Irish based professional Institute dedicated to the development and support of Industrial Engineering, Fire Safety and Occupational Health and Safety professions. IIESMS act as adviser, advocate and trainer for engineering professionals working in organisations of all shapes and sizes throughout the world.
IIESMS is committed to the use of sustainable engineering, the enhancement of the efficiency of engineering processes, resource use, and a holistic adoption of environmental stewardship in engineering activities. Improving and creating Sustainable Products and services will support the transition to a “sustainable green economy”. Our focus is to help our members in creating workplaces that are safer, healthier and more sustainable.
Current Research Programme
We’ve all heard of the phrase “Work-Life Flow”, but the reality is, our daily responsibilities don’t always arrive in a balanced way. Work-Life Flow refers to the dynamic equilibrium between an individual’s professional and social roles.
What We Do
What is Industrial Engineering
Industrial Engineering may be defined as “Understanding the design, safety, improvement and installation of integrated systems involving people, information, materials, equipment and energy, incorporating environmental and social constraints as well as economic considerations into engineering decisions”. It draws upon specialised knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, chemistry, biology, microbiology, physics, anatomy, physiology, occupational health and safety, and social sciences to create an approach to developing new products and services that are in tune with “Sustainable Development Goals set out in Agenda 2030 – EU Green Deal goals for Sustainable Industry, Sustainable Products and a Circular Economy”.
What are Fire and Safety Management Systems
The primary purpose of a fire or safety management system is to design, manage, plan and co-ordinate appropriate fire and safety procedures to reduce the risk of death or injury and to ensure as far as reasonably practicable the safety of building occupants. An effective fire, health and safety management proven system of practices, processes, and other measures that employers implement to promote continued health and safety improvement is a critical element of any business’s sustainability. IIESMS membership will help you raise your existing fire and safety management systems to a new performance level. By having a complete fire and safety management system, the organisation can ensure legal compliance and protect lives and assets.
What is Sustainable Engineering
Sustainability in engineering is of great importance to any plans for overall sustainability given the pervasiveness of engineering activities in societies, their importance in economic development and living standards, and the significant impacts engineering processes and systems have had and continue to have on the environment. Engineering is applying scientific and mathematical principles for practical purposes such as the design, manufacture, and operation of products and processes while accounting for constraints invoked by economics, the environment, and other sociological factors.
To serve and support all those working to solve the world’s complex and critical problems sustainably whilst providing a safe workplace that both protects the occupants and the environment.
An inclusive organization that advances promotes and unites the Industrial Engineering and Safety Management Systems profession internationally – in performing (working, acting, behaving) in a sustainable manner that does not compromise the environment for future generations
