TECHNICAL PAPER PRESENTATIONS AT Monthly General Meetings To Date
A PAPER PRESENTED TO THE NIGERIAN SOCIETY OF ENGINEERS,
ABA BRANCH AT HER FEBRUARY 2011 MEETING THIS 28TH DAY OF FEBRUARY, 2011.
BY: Engr Felix C. Nnabugwu MNSE, MNICE, C.Eng
STRESS MANAGEMENT: THE OTHER DIMENSION TO SAFETY AT THE ENGINEER’S WORKPLACE 1. INTRODUCTION:
Every engineer is made to imbibe safety education at the engineering school. The engineer therefore enters the workplace intellectually equipped to manage hazards of the profession. Most engineering establishments, not only take their staff through repeated safety orientations, seminars and workshops but go a step to establish a department charged with the responsibility for safety magement.
These measures are put in place to equip the engineer with appropriate skill to enable him work safely today, so he can live to work tomorrow.
The engineers work in not only hazardous but equally stressful.
Incidentally, little effort is made to equip the engineer with skills that will enable him cope with the stress associated with his work.

May, 25th 2009: Topic -“Talk On Sustaining The Aba Engineer For Proper Readership And NSE Aba Branch In-Roads In The Group Dynamics 2009 in Owerri”
Introduction: ” The need for NSE Aba Branch to gain more relevance in the NSE National Group Dynamics is emphasised.The paper called for greater sustainablility and awareness of the branches programmes as it pertains to encouraging Young Graduate engineers.Older and senoir engineers are called upon to add more efforts to mentor new corporate members to ensure that the engineering family are on course.Local NSE forums,internship programmes,compulsory(well supervised )attachments in industires together with proper orientations for among other requirements on engineering teachers are envisaged to enable would be engineers come up to standard certifications.
Paporteaur: Engr. P.N.Onumaegbu,MNSE,MIEEE”
October 2008 : Topic-Electrical System Earthing Reliability Enhancement Using Cadwelding Method”
Presenter: Engr. Nelson O.Ogbogu,mnse
September 2002:Topic-“Jet Grouting- Solution To Problems Of Soil Mechanics”
Presenter: Okore G.E(mnse);Structural Engineer
Abstract:”Jet Grouting is here discussed as one of several aspects associated with solutions to problems of soil mechanics.It is seen as a potent remedy tool for civil/structural ,water and foundation engineering.
Jet Grouting application is not limited to land reclamation but traverses others especially foundation re-consolidation where other geo-technical processes cannot be applied successfully”
