Almost every engineering discipline has some hazard if proper precautions are not taken. As an example wearing productive clothing and gloves is a good safety practice in chemical engineering. Wearing non conductive gloves are good for electrical engineering. Nuclear engineering would certainly require more sophisticated safety measures. I hope that helps. Good luck with your project.

It really depends. Chemical engineering and nuclear engineering I think can be the most harmful ones. But with proper protection, the harm is reduced to a minimum.
