Abstract

This book investigates why, despite more and more resources devoted to safety training, expectations are not entirely met, particularly in the industrial sectors that have already achieved a high safety level. It not only reflects the most precious viewpoints of experts from different disciplines, different countries, with experiences in various industrial fields at the cutting edge of theories and practices in terms of safety, professionalization and their relationships. It also consolidates the positioning of the Foundation for an Industrial Safety Culture, highlighting what is currently considered at stake in terms of safety training, taking into account the system of constraints the different stakeholders are submitted to. It reports some success stories as well as elements which could explain the observed plateau in terms of outcome. It identifies some levers for evolution for at-risk industry and outlines a possible research agenda to go further with experimental solutions.

Abstract

The articles in this volume are contributed by scholars who are not only experts in areas of Actuarial Science (AS) and Mathematical Finance (MF), but also those who present diverse perspectives from both industry and academia. Topics from multiple areas, such as Stochastic Modeling, Credit Risk, Monte Carlo Simulation, and Pension Valuation, among others, that were maybe thought to be the domain of one type of risk manager, are shown time and again to have deep value to other areas of risk management as well. The articles in this collection, in my opinion, contribute techniques, ideas, and overviews of tools that folks in both AS and MF will find useful and interesting to implement in their work. It is also my hope that this collection will inspire future collaboration between those who seek an interdisciplinary approach to risk management.

Abstract

Kanban is a representative control policy pursuing cost-efficient features for the material flow system. However, the Kanban mechanism increases the system vulnerability especially when the environment is uncertain. Therefore, we proposed a robust Kanban system model for the supply chain system based on the Kanban mechanism. The model can use robust approaches from strategic, tactical, and operational levels to deal with the risks in an uncertain environment.

Abstract

This book explores the implications of acknowledging uncertainty and black swans for regulation of high-hazard technologies, for stakeholder acceptability of potentially hazardous activities and for risk governance. The conventional approach to risk assessment, which combines the likelihood of an event and the severity of its consequences, is poorly suited to situations where uncertainty and ambiguity are prominent features of the risk landscape. The new definition of risk used by ISO, “the effect of uncertainty on [achievement of] one’s objectives”, recognizes this paradigm change. What lessons can we draw from the management of fire hazards in Edo-era Japan? Are there situations in which increasing uncertainty allows more effective safety management? How should society address the risk of potentially planet-destroying scientific experiments?This book presents insights from leading scholars in different disciplines to challenge current risk governance and safety management practice.

Abstract

Risk in banking business can not be avoided because the latter is strongly embedded in the very nature of it and banks should therefore be aware of the importance of effective risk management, encompassing the identification, measurement and assessment of each type of risk. Risk management can be important source of gaining competitive advantage and a way to survive in the world of banking. One of the most important risk in bank is the credit risk. Credit risk can be defined as the potential that a bank borrower or counterparty will fail to meet its obligations. The goal of credit risk management is to maximise bank´s risk-adjusted rate of return by maintaining credit risk exposure within acceptable parameters. Banks need to manage the credit risk inherent in the entire portfolio as well as the risk in invidual credits of transaction. Banks should also consider the relationships between credit risk and other risks. The effective management of credit risk is a comprehensive component of a comprehensive approach to risk management and essential to the long-term success of bank. Risk management is usualy regulated by bank directives, prescriptions, where the most important in Slovenia is the Law about banking with under law acts.

Abstract

Das Recht der Unternehmensorganisation hat sich als eine der zentralen Anknüpfungspunkte im modernen Wirtschaftsrecht erwiesen. Nach zaghaften Anfängen in den achtziger Jahren werden heute Unternehmen mit zahlreichen Organisationspflichten aus den verschiedensten Rechtsbereichen konfrontiert. Prominentes Beispiel ist der Finanzbereich, der bis weit ins Detail reichende Vorgaben zur Einrichtung von Risikomanagementsystemen umzusetzen hat. Aber auch viele andere Bereiche des öffentlichen Rechts kennen derartige Organisationspflichten. Im Zivilrecht und auch im Strafrecht ist die Figur der Organisationspflicht ebenfalls seit langem bekannt, aber kaum in seine übergreifenden Zusammenhänge gestellt worden. Das Werk beleuchtet die verschiedenen Rechtsgrundlagen für die Organisationspflichten, ihre verfasssungsrechtlichen Grundlagen, die betriebswirtschaftlichen Konkretisierungsversuche einschließlich der Qualitätsmanagement- und Standardisierungsbewegungen auf der Ebene der ISO, die zivil- und strafrechtlichen Auswirkungen bis hin zur Haftung im Konzern und der persönlichen Verantwortlichkeit der Organvertreter. Die Arbeit stellt die diversen Pflichten und ihre Ausprägungen in einem rechtsgebietsübergreifenden und auch interdisziplinären Ansatz vor, wobei für eine stärkere Zurückhaltung und eine Hinwendung zu Zielvorgaben plädiert wird.
