PROFILES IN SAFETY- ROSA NOMEN



Professor Rosa Nomen is one of the main contributors at the development and improvement of Health and Safety training, especially for Industrial Safety. 
We collaborated for the first time when Professor Rosa Nomen took over the management of a project (S2S= Safety to Safety- excellence research network) that had started badly- so that no one took his money in the first year. She solved the problems and made the project successful and a big help for the safety experts in the European Union – as they could access the knowledge inside for free. The results obtained in the S2S project were used in many other European projects later.
Professor Rosa Nomen was one of the most important guests of the ISTELS international symposium that was held in Bucharest in 2009. An excellent communicator, she is also one of the best experts in the industrial safety domain.
Some of the significant aspects of her biography are presented below:

-PhD on Chemical Engineering (1982, IQS)
-Industrial Engineer (1993, URL)
-Chemical Engineer (1978, IQS)

-Full Professor, 1992 -
-Vice-rector of Students and International Relations of the URL
-Dean of IQS School of Engineering 2010-

-Head of UNESCO Cathedra for Education, Technology and Development of the URL
-Coordinator of the Master on Occupational Safety and Health
-Chairwomen of the Scientific Committee of ICTAC (International Council of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry
-Member of the Executive Board of ETPIS (European Technology Platform on Industrial Safety) and PESI (Plataforma Tecnológica Española de Seguridad Industrial)
-Member of the Administration Council of EFCU (European Federation of Catholic Universities)

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. It is a supporting toolset that allows managers to bridge the gap between control requirements, technical issues and business risks. COBIT was first released in 1996; the current version, COBIT 5, was published in 2012.
