PROFILES IN SAFETY- ALEXANDRU DARABONT





Professor Ph. D. ALEXANDRU DARABONT was born in 1933 in Lupeni. After graduating the University in Petrosani  and working as a lector in the Polytechnic Institute in Bucharest he joined the Scientific Research Institute for Labour Safety (ICSPM- actually INCDPM ”Alexandru Darabont” ). He became General Manager of INCDPM in 1986 and held this position till his death, on 19 September 2002.
Professor Ph.D. ALEXANDRU DARABONT was a very nice man, very supportive for the occupational safety research activity and young researchers. He succeeded to maintain a functional research institute in very difficult economic periods. He re-launched the research in the safety domain in Romania, on modern bases and supported the development of this research. He continuously improved the quality of research, facilitating the training of Romanian researchers in Germany, France and UK and also the implementation of European specific programs (PHARE and others) in Romania, through INCDPM. With his direct support a lot of researchers from ICSPM became PhD s between 1996-2000. 

Professor Ph.D. ALEXANDRU DARABONT was an outstanding researcher. Specialized in the research of noise and vibrations, he published 15 books in the domain or related domains and more than 120 papers. He was the author of 5 patented inventions and also the supervisor for the doctorands in „Occupational Safety”. He was an out of the box thinker, allowing a free and successful development of the specific research during the time of his leadership. He was the developer and the promoter of the actual training system in the domain of occupational safety in Romania.
Professor Ph.D. ALEXANDRU DARABONT was a very good mentor. He supported me in  my research concerning the expert systems development in occupational safety-  with his help I was able to obtain an European research grant at BIA in 1993 and also I could take my Ph. D. in 1996.

IDENTIFICAREA ȘI ANALIZA CAUZELOR RĂDĂCINĂ -1

Analiza cauzelor rădăcină este o metodă extrem de folosită de către managementul de performanță  din firmele dezvoltate. Metoda este considerată ca o metodă primară- care trebuie utilizată în primele faze ale analizei specifice procesului managerial. Ne propunem să prezentăm o metodă de analiză a cauzelor rădăcină care să poată fi aplicată atât pentru managementul calității cât și pentru managementul securității – ținând seama de faptul că în cea mai mare parte, cauzele rădăcină ale problemelor de calitate și problemelor de securitate și sănătate sunt comune. Figura 1 prezintă modul  global de analiză pentru cauzele rădăcină Din figură se poate observa că avem 2 procese distincte: ·         -un proces de identificare- care va fi realizat pe baza metodei cunoscute și ca 5 W ( 5 Why); ·         -un proces de analiză; procesul de analiză urmărește: o   stabilirea cauzelor specifice managementului calității și managementului de SSM; o   ierarhizarea cauzelor identificate;

DEVELOPING SAFETY ASSESSMENT SYSTEMS USING EXPERT SYSTEM SHELLS-1

Acknowledgements: The author wants to thank XpertRule Software LTD and mr. Tim Sell for being able to try Decision Author- the main software in which this prototype shall be built.
GENERAL ASPECTS Safety domain of research is by excellence a domain based on expertise. Textbooks and theoretical knowledge are good but the safety expert which inspects three times a day a certain part of an enterprise is the ultimate safety dealer here. A lot of expertise is transformed into lessons learned- that are used for training and improvement of existing safety attitudes. On the other part, this expertise could be also valued in order to build optimal and effective safety assessment systems. An expert system is software that emulates the decision-making ability of a human expert. In our case- the expert part should interrogate the specific employees regarding safety aspects of an enterprise. The next figure illustrates how a safety expert, with the necessary knowledge into the problem could impr…

VULNERABILITY METRICS AND KPI

KPI definitionA key performance indicator(KPI) is a measure of performance, commonly used to help an organization defineand evaluate how successful it is, typically in terms of making progress towards its long-term organizational goals.
–KPIs provide business-level context to security-generated data –KPIs answer the “so what?” question –Each additional KPI indicates a step forward in program maturity –None of these KPIs draw strictly from security data
COBITControl Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT) is a framework created by ISACA for information technology (IT) management and IT governance.
