    In process industries as petrochemical industries, many researcher stated levels of safety culture are key factors to affect industrial accidents.<b> </b>However, definitions of safety culture are implicit, and there are many issues to measure safety culture.<b> </b>We developed 110 item questionnaire based on 8 axis model of safety culture. This questionnaire responded by 9,647 employees from 86 Japanese plants, which included thermal power plants, oil refineries, chemical plant and rubber plants.<b> </b>As a result, the first principal component score, which could be used as a composite indicator of safety(Safety Culture Index), showed a negative correlation with the incidence of occupational and process accidents. Also, result of this study indicates this assessment has the possibility to streamline plants safety measure planning.

    Understanding how job position affects perceptions of safety culture is important in utilizing safety culture survey results, and performing safety culture audits at a plant. In this study, we use two independently finished safety culture surveys (surveys obtained from HSE department managers and surveys obtained from the workforce). We performed two analyses to investigate this issue.( 1) We analyzed relationships between two safety culture surveys for large scale process plants that were finished independently( 23 plants responded both surveys),( 2) We compared safety culture survey results obtained from the workforce for the management to that for the workers( 32 plants responded). The analysis results are as follows(. i) Discrepancy between the<b> </b>managements and workers is larger on responses to questionnaire items belonging to "Bases for Organizational Culture." ( ii) Questionnaire items are categorized into "Items with significant positive correlation between responses from the management and the<b> </b>workers" and "Items without correlation between responses from the management and workers." 3) Some questionnaire items in the survey for HSE department managers are negatively correlated with the survey results for the workforce.

  • The Causal Model Based on Safety Culture Assessment Results in Petrochemical Industry Reviewed

    <p>In recent years, the importance of safety culture in process safety management is recognized in process industries including petrochemical industry. Many assessment techniques of safety culture were proposed. In Japan, the assessment technique based on 8 axes of safety culture has already been applied to many petrochemical plant sites and it was shown recently that their results correlate well to the safety performance of corresponding sites. When the weaknesses of certain axes were made clear through the results of assessments, it is necessary to examine their root causes and propose countermeasures to overcome the weaknesses. In this process, it is necessary to understand the relations between these axes. In the process industry, the function of top management, plant management and operation are equally important to support good safety culture. Based on the assessment data, the authors used covariance structure analysis to propose a causal model with 8 axes as observable variables and 3 layers of management as constructs. By using the causal model, construct scores can be calculated to show the status of certain site in comparison with the other sites and the proposal of countermeasures to strengthen safety culture is facilitated.</p>

  • A VALIDATION REGARDING EFFECTIVENESS OF SCENARIO GRAPH Reviewed

    Scenario Graph is a structured mind mapping methodology that aids design teams to generate potential scenarios for new products and services while visually organizing contextual information. Since its introduction in industry and academia, the Scenario Graph has helped design teams to capture new values and behaviors of potential customers during the problem formulation stage. At the same time, the Scenario Graph, sharing a common challenge with various design methods, has faced difficulty regarding validation of its effectiveness as a design method.
    This paper describes a validation framework for a method in problem formulation stages and an experiment, which compare ideation results of 87 people-43 people with the Scenario Graph method (as a test group) and 44 people with the Brainstorming (as a control group) to solve an identical problem. While the results show no statistically significant difference in the number of ideas generated, the data reveals statistically significant differences in the quality of ideas. The test group, which used the Scenario Graph, yielded ideas that were more novel, feasible, and abstract than the control group, which used the Brainstorming, did. These metrics represent a way to measure the quality of ideas in the domain of engineering design.
    Our experiment confirms the hypotheses that the Scenario Graph is effective in improving the performance of idea generation sessions, which is consistent with qualitative evaluations. The lessons, gained from this experiment, provide an insight on how this method can be effectively used during the early stages of concept generation of a company's process for product and/or service development.

    In this paper, in order to develop a group dynamics training that suits a specific occupational team, studies were carried out on how to set the training target and to measure training results. Teamwork Importance Factors were determined by implementing a questionnaire survey. A Teamwork Target Scale and a Teamwork Condition Scale were outlined by using a factor model of Teamwork Importance Factors. There was no significant difference between the average on the Teamwork Target Scale and the high score group's average on the Teamwork Condition Scale. There was a significant difference between the average on the Teamwork Target Scale and the low score group's average on the Teamwork Condition Scale. Further, there was a significant difference between the high score group and the low score group's average on the Teamwork Condition Scale. Additionally, the study shows that important factors differ with regard to the types of occupation. Finally, this study shows the possibility for target setting and measuring the training results by using these scales.
