RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT REGARDING A SAFETY AND OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AVATAR AS A MOBILE COMPANION FOR EMPLOYEES IN AN OPTIMAL SAFETY CULTURE



General Aspects

Safety and safety training is sometimes a little boring. To repeat the same things again and again, reading from safety instructions, trying to listen carefully at a trainer that is generally a non-inspirational person, being aware all the time to all the risks that could damage your health or affect your existence- could be annoying or simply extremely boring. So, many times safety learning is turning into a formal and boring obligation.
Having an experience regarding these aspects and wanting to have not just simply robots but people that are communicating and interacting into a safety developed culture- we have tried to transform bits of education into an interactive action that could be disseminated by a nice and smart avatar- not like NAPO- that is customised strictly for your day to day needs.

Meet John the Employee

John the Employee is our first avatar- that could be seen in the figure 1. He is a nice guy- and could be held inside a mobile (phone, tablet or laptop).


Figure 1. John the Employee

John the Employee is based upon a scene that could be developed very careful. The possibilities of development could be seen in figure 2. Each object is having its own layer- and there are plenty of libraries that could be used to place objects.


Figure 2. Development of a screen

Each avatar could be based on one or more screens. Each screen is contended into a project structure, as it could be seen in figure 3.


Figure 3 Project structure

Figure 4 shows a typical script. This script could be developed as needed for the next day of work.


Figure 4 General Script

As you can see- every line of the script could be supplemented by moves and gestures of John. The buttons in the right would command the moves of the character.

How John the Employee was developed


The process of development for the avatar and his script is shown in figure 5.

Figure 5 The development process of John the Employee

The steps for the development are detailed below:
-the management is defining a goal regarding safety, goal that must fulfill ASAP.
-the cooperative development team is formed. It includes a safety expert, a supervisor and a designer.
-the cooperative development team is developing a draft scenario. The draft scenario is tested on one or more subjects- and the feedback is used to improve the scenario.
-the scenario is implemented into IT. Implementation could be done as flash snippets, as a movie or as HTML5 programme.

The piece is transferred to the mobiles of the employees- to be used when intended.

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.
