There are many economic units (in Romania at least) that are not into routine production. These units need safety also- and the present paper describes a possible solution for them. Templates may seem trivial in the experience of many developed countries- but they are not simply templates but expert system-based ones.
Templates are- in our vision:
-instruments to check in specific safety situations;
-instruments for learning;
-best safety procedures in order to do a specific task without injuries;
One take-away template is composed by:
-A Well Balanced Safety Template Input;
-The expert mechanisms;
-The dissemination of results dashboard (DDR)
So, on the input of the template there are work facts derived from the necessities of the worker. Why is this template input interesting? We call it Knowledge Based Template Input (KBTI) and we are considering as an input for the template also not measurable facts – facts that were identified but on which the worker could express – with a degree of incertitude- of course. We are speaking about Well Balanced Template Input when the coefficient of uncertainty is >=0.8 – the ideal value being 1. The template auto-computes these uncertainty indices and could give some advice to the filler employee- like ~you need more data~ or ~please focus on the estimated pressure of reservoir 1 when the event is happening~. Moreover, the template records the input data as it is transforming it into a pattern for lessons well learned.
What happens inside? Inside the expert systems offers solutions arranged as follows:
-For immediate use- the solution assures the safety and health of the employees but is not guaranteeing the integrity of the machines or processes or the environment; templates for immediate use are activated by an expert system module with the capacity to learn and analyse the immediate decisions made using these templates;
-For quick implementation-the solution assures the safety of the workers and the integrity of machines and logistic. It could assure also the safety of the work environment, if the environment has not a certain degree of complexity;
-For reflection and interpretation- the solution protects all the three elements of the workplace but is costlier and sometimes difficult to apply. This solution is using a prospective expert system that would analyse also the possible uncertainty based solutions;
Employees are assuring after everyday use the necessary feedback like:
-Template is fit for our work problems- enounce 3 major advantages;
-Under development- we could use part…;
Why we want to present such templates at Hazards XXXIX? Because more and more companies would became”non-traditional” ones- and would need to use such an expertise and to base their safety to expert decisions and not just on static knowledge.
