The present project was developed in the School of Science and Engineering in Materials, located in the Technological of Costa Rica in the province of Cartago. This school provides teaching services, training in thermal treatments, corrosives, development of non-destructive tests, among others. The objective of the project is to propose a human security program for fires, earthquakes and floods. The methodology used in the analysis of the existing hazard conditions in the School of Materials Science and Engineering was the application in buildings of a set of checklists based on national regulations, in addition to the application of focus groups and structured interviews to the teaching and student population. On the other hand, natural threats were evaluated with a matrix to assess threats in work centers. The data obtained were analyzed in a matrix based on the INTE 31-06-07: 2011, for the identification of hazards and evaluation of all existing risks in the facilities associated with the work carried out in this, and the risk of fire it was calculated and analyzed using the Meseri method. The analysis of the information showed that the school has deficiencies in areas such as salvage signage, structural problems, poor state of the electrical systems, lack of means of combat against fires, among others. The risk of fires existing in school facilities was classified as medium risk, which is unacceptable for an educational institution. Earthquakes and structural flooding presented a constant danger to buildings. As a result, a human security program for fire, earthquakes and floods was proposed, through which a series of corrective measures of the conditions identified in the school are offered.
