    Författare :Marcus Abrahamsson; Lunds universitets centrum för riskanalys och riskhantering (LUCRAM); []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; emergency preparedness; emergency management; emergency response system; design; vulnerability analysis; risk analysis; preferences; values; evaluation.;

    Sammanfattning : Information from performed risk and vulnerability analyses, evaluation of responses in relation to actual emergencies etcetera can be very useful in efforts directed at preventing, mitigating and/or preparing for future emergencies. This thesis focuses on the development of methods for such analysis and evaluation. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Safety for Children in Cars – Focus on Three Point Seatbelts in Emergency Events

    Författare :Isabelle Stockman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Steering; Crash test dummies; Run-off road; Child restraint systems; Child safety; Emergency events; Braking; Pre-pretensioners;

    Sammanfattning : Child safety in vehicles has improved over time. One of the main factors is due to the increased restraint use by children. Nevertheless, studies show that although children are restrained, injuries still occur indicating that restraint systems have the potential for further improvement. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Dependability of IT Systems in Emergency Situations – Theory and Practice

    Författare :Kim Weyns; Institutionen för datavetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dependability; IT Systems; Emergency Management; Markov Models; Sensitivity Analysis; Swedish Municipalities;

    Sammanfattning : As our dependence on IT systems increases, evaluating the dependability of critical IT systems becomes more important. One of the main challenges in software reliability engineering is the sensitivity of software systems to a changing usage. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Patient safety at emergency departments : challenges with crowding, multitasking and interruptions

    Författare :Lena M Berg; Katarina Göransson; Anna Ehrenberg; Jan Florin; Jan Östergren; Birgitta Wireklint Sundström; Lena Berg; Karolinska Institutet Solna Department of Medicine; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Several challenges with patient safety in the emergency department (ED) context have beenpreviously identified, and some commonly mentioned are crowding, multitasking, andinterruptions. The ED is a complex, high-risk work environment where multiple clinicians(physicians, registered nurses [RNs], and licensed practical nurses [LPNs]) are constantlyworking in parallel work processes, in an often crowded ED, while conducting tasksinvolving cognitively demanding decision-making processes.

  5. 5. Improving disaster response evaluations : Supporting advances in disaster risk management through the enhancement of response evaluation usefulness

    Författare :Ralf Josef Johanna Beerens; Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; crisis; disaster; emergency; disaster risk management DRM ; preparedness; exercise; simulation; response; performance; evaluation; usefullness; design; The Netherlands;

    Sammanfattning : Future disasters or crises are difficult to predict and therefore hard to prepare for. However, while a specific event might not have happened, it can be simulated in an exercise. LÄS MER
