General aspects

Would it be possible to have a simple and efficient method in order to audit the safety and health of any enterprise?  Would it be possible to perform a safety audit without a fancy method that is not understood even by the top management of the enterprise? Would it be possible to have an efficient safety audit that would protect the enterprise against future risks?
The answer could be affirmative- with the method of 10 elements.

Short discussion regarding the principles that are standing at the basis of the method

The developed method is based on the finite element analysis (FEA). As it main objectives there could be mentioned:
-To understand the safety behaviors of a complex and distinct defined objects (specific workplaces);
– To predict the safety performance and safety behaviour of the facility on the basis of a safety audit of specific elements;
-To calculate the safety margin- as a safety level at the audit moment; and to identify the
weakness of the enterprise accurately as certain weak points; to establish a relative importance of these weak points so that to be able to decide which of them must be dealt with immediately; which must be mitigated in the near future and which should be monitored and mitigated on mid and long term.
The method  of the 10 elements  says that being given a space of abstraction called α we will always find 10 elements μ ii = 1 ... 10 describing unambiguously and fully considering a certain safety objective- the previously defined object space α.
We are introducing the notion of safety audit node that is describing a well-defined element, specific for the economic unit being audited- and which is describing a significant part of the safety state of the unit being audited.

Short description of the method

Main Objectives

-Safety audit of the facility using the audit nodes;
-Establishment of a safety score for each element and the facility as a whole;
-Identification of weak points and ordering them starting with the ones that should be immediately solved;
-Opening to more deep safety audits;
-Connecting with the Capability Maturity Model and establishing a Safety Capability Maturity Model on the basis of the audit.
The next figure gives a descriptive schema of the main 10 elements.

The method is very efficient and easy to use- mainly for SME s but also for any enterprise, regardless of the size. It starts with the audit node- that could be as small as the auditor wants- and is using a set of 10 elements that could be defined each one by other sets of 10 elements, etc.

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…


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;

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. Its mission is “to research, develop, publish and promote an authoritative, up-to-date, international set of generally accepted information technology control obj…
