Abstract In this paper, the authors propose the use of time windows to improve the detection of fuel leaks in petrol stations. They employ two-class supervised classifiers that work with feature sets containing representative variables taken from station inventory books that indicate the presence of leaks. Fuel leaks in petrol stations with underground tanks pose a serious problem from an environmental standpoint. Large leaks are very evident, and are therefore detected quickly without the need ...

Abstract In this study, we have proposed an innovative integrated methodology to handle a mix of categorical and numeric safety data. We have augmented the traditional multiple correspondence analysis (MCA) through the use of fuzzy discretization approach, t-SNE technique and fuzzy c-means clustering. The fuzzy discretization approach transforms the continuous variables to categorical variables to make them analyzable using MCA. R2-profile is adopted to obtain the best number of hidden dimension...

Abstract This work evaluates the effect of increasing level of detail in emergency alerts on underground miners’ emergency evacuation decisions. An offline survey was administered to underground miners, which provided miners simulated alerts with ever-increasing levels of information about fire, cave in, and explosion emergency scenarios. The simulated evacuation exercise evaluated differences in evacuation decisions due to the channel of communication (text message or through a co-worker). The ...

Abstract The question of how inspectorates on occupational safety and health were born and developed recalls the question of how risks were conceived and how they lead to the adoption of regulations, creation of institutions, development of their scope of work, powers and methods. What seems to have led to create regulations and inspection institutions was, interestingly, not just the importance of a risk in terms of lives lost or other harm, but that a risk be perceived as something that could ...

Abstract The present study extended the concept of safety compliance by differentiating two types of compliance behavior: deep compliance and surface compliance. By incorporating our new conceptualization into an integrative model of workplace safety, we developed a model of how different dimensions of safety climate, namely, management commitment to safety and perceived punishment for non-compliance behavior, influence these two forms of safety compliance, which in turn, are differentially rela...

Abstract Contextual investigations of automated vehicle technology have so far been rare, however they are crucial to uncover the challenges that exist around its acceptance and safe use. Twenty-one drivers used a partially automated vehicle on a public highway in unaltered traffic conditions, while their behaviour was observed. Subjective measures of technology acceptance were taken before and after the drive, as well as post-drive ratings of engagement, workload, and perceived safety for manua...

Abstract Contemporary safety philosophies, such as Safety II, promote the importance of understanding effective work practices as well as those leading to adverse events. Despite this, little safety research has focussed on identifying and representing these protective practices in incident analysis. This study combined AcciMap and network analysis methods to identify and evaluate the system-wide protective practices occurring within a set of led outdoor activity domain near miss incidents. The ...

Abstract Safety is typically cast as a trade-off with other priorities, such as production and efficiency. Such an approach sets up dramatic tension between organisational goals—an ‘either-or’ situation. Alternatively, safety can be framed as something that can be achieved simultaneously with other goals—a ‘both-and’ situation. The aim of this paper is to raise awareness of the paradoxical nature of safety and to explore how paradoxical insights might advance safety research and practices. We in...

Abstract Many companies maintain large databases of incident reports. Incidents that have severe consequences are analyzed in detail to prevent recurrence, while minor incidents are typically just stored without any further evaluation. Especially with common incidents and those with lesser consequences, details that are necessary to understand the cause of the incident might be missing or recorded inconsistently. We argue that incidents can be reported more accurately and analyzed to provide lea...
