We have begun to develop an occupational risk based ontology- using as a main instrument for development Stanford University Protegee.
As soon as we are going to find a free host our ontology would be accessible for free on this support.
The specialists that are willing to cooperate in the development of this ontology- are gladly expected.


We have considered some main start-up definitions as main pillars in the development of the ontology.
1. HAZARD- A hazard is any source of potential damage, harm or adverse health effects on something or someone under certain conditions at work.
Basically, a hazard can cause harm or adverse effects (to individuals as health effects or to organizations as property or equipment losses).
2.RISK – is the umbrella under which all occupational risks can exist.
3.INHERENT/INCIDENTAL RISKS – contain all risks that can either exist or be created by controllable actions (incidental), or exist due to uncontrollable circumstances (inherent)
4.EXTERNAL/OPERATIONAL RISKS – external risks can only represent external financial risks to an enterprise. External risks can be members of all other risks and must be a part of any discoverable risk set. Operational risks can only represent internal financial risks to an enterprise. Operational risks can be members of all other risks and must be a part of any discoverable risk set.
5.RISK FACTORS- Factors that  describe specific risks. Other definitions are following. We will try to use EOSH and NIOSH definitions.


We have started with three main classes:
1. Risk;
2. Risk factors;
3. Personal factors that are affecting risk;
We have added subclasses to these main classes.
We have defined instances where we were thinking that such instances are appropriate.


The development process is actually underway. 
Some images from the development process are presented below.

At this moment we were not able to find something very useful by developing such an ontology- as it has very little space to document the terms, it is not accepting links and has a somehow rigid format. In this respect we are going to link the ontology with knowledge maps in order to obtain a better learning instrument. 
Some images from the running of the ontology are presented below.

On a larger scale it is interesting that such an ontology could be exported as CLIPS code or as a Java code, being able to be embedded in such programs.

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…


Așa după cum s-a văzut dintr-o postare trecută, graful de risc poate fi un instrument util- și nu numai în cazul bolilor profesionale. Vom adapta în continuare  teoria existentă la teoria și practica din România și vom detalia câteva aspecte considerate de interes.
Este interesant de adaptat  graful de risc pornind de la clasicul sistem Om-Mașină folosit în practica de specialitate din domeniul SSM din România. În acest sens, folosind experiența existentă și datele statistice putem dezvolta în mod corespunzător- așa cum se prezintă în continuare în acest material.
Tabelul 1- Atribute folosite în graf Atribut Descriere I (Inițiatori) Operator(O): a. operator pregătit necorespunzător[1] b.operator malevolent [2] c.operator surprins de un eveniment neprevăzut datorat sarcinii[3] d. operator surprins de un eveniment neprevăzut datorat mașinii;[4] e. operator surprins de un eveniment neprevăzut datorat mediului/factorilor naturali.
