PROFILES IN SAFETY-DIRK OBERHAGEMANN




Dr. Dirk Oberhagemann was the safety expert that had contributed decisively at the entering of INCDPM on the European research area in the safety domain. In 2000 he introduced us in the Safetynet network and facilitated our presence at the Safecon conference in Athens. In 2002 he was instrumental in the INCDPM membership in S2S.
From 1985 - 1988, Dr. Dirk Oberhagemann worked as scientific employee in the working group „Physical - chemical process engineering/safety technology“of the University of Dortmund. In this position he was responsible for different projects in the field of process safety. The main aspect of the work was the preventive explosion protection. This work was concluded in 1988 when he obtained his PhD for his work on auto ignition temperatures of mixtures. The organisation of research projects was continued in 1988 at the DLR in Bonn and at the German Federal Ministry for Research and Technology.

From 1989 to 1994 he was responsible for the management of the research programme „Safety research and technology“on behalf of the BMFT at the VDI in Düsseldorf. „Transfer of results from standardisation in the field of explosion protection to industry - especially SMEs“with 8 organisations from 7 countries and “Safetynet – A network on Process Safety” with 33 funded members and 71 non funded members from 20 countries and the network “S2S – A gateway of Plant and Process Safety” with 40 members. Furthermore he organised the first Internet-Conference on Process Safety and the International ESMG Symposiums on Process Safety and Industrial Explosion Protection. He is member of the scientific committee of the German association of fire protection (vfdb) and is co-ordinating research projects for vfdb like “Risks associated with major public events – Planning, assessment, and Evacuation and rescue concepts”.

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.
