Health and safety is one of the oldest engineering concerns. Sanitation engineering and public health drastically improved the quality of life amongst ancient peoples, through the construction of aqueducts and sewage drainage systems. Working with machinery can greatly simplify certain tasks, but also leaves room for dangerous workplace accidents.
