DEVELOPING A SAFER WORKPLACE THROUGH SAFETY KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT

ABSTRACT
Safety at the workplace is one of the essential concerns of every worker, supervisor and enterprise manager. Our research was focused towards improving safety at the workplace through a better safety knowledge management. We have designed a safety knowledge management system (SaKnoMaS) which includes a safety knowledge map that will disseminate the resources towards the main components of the workplace system. The obtained  results are spectacular in a sense of way. Our prototype solution  improves safety and health at workplace with more than 30% through a better safety knowledge management.
Keywords: Safety knowledge management, safety knowledge map, risk reduction
