System for handling of non-conformance

System for handling of non-conformance

System for handling of non-conformanceThe project is intended primarily to establish a system to collect and process all events that may constitute a risk of injury and hence prevent NTNU's service performance. NTNU implements this project as a result of a recommendation made in the wake of the risk and vulnerability analysis conducted by NTNU in 2008. The recommendation is to establish an overall system for handling of non-conformance, which will handle the enrollment, processing and reporting, and responsibility in relation to follow-up measures.

According to NTNU's policy (Norwegian only) to report non-conformities, a system for handling of deviations should help to identify discrepancies involving; accidents or near accidents, fire or a starting fire, personal injury, damage to the environment, material damage to objects or buildings (this also includes deviation in relation to the practice of guidelines and HSE requirements). The system is intended to help;

  • NTNU to prevent similar or new deviation to occur later, and to secure any rights of an injured person.
  • all discrepancies discovered during ongoing operation, or by internal audits, to be corrected, reported and prevented.

The project is owned by the HSE Division, and is one of NTNU's strategy projects of 2009.

The project is conducted in two phases, a prestudy project and a main project respectively. The prestudy project investigates the needs of NTNU, both of organizational and IT technical matters, as well as the requirements that NTNU will run for a system for handling of non-conformance. Included in this, an evaluation whether this system can be expanded in order to include other types of aberration than HES-related deviations. By following the requirements outlined in the initial project, the main project shall select and implement the system, both organizational as well as technically.

Establishment of an overall system for handling of non-conformance include;

  1. clarification of the system's surroundings, which actors (indirectly and directly) are affected by the system, as well as the use / benefit these has got from the system
  2. reconcile the system's functionality (quantitatively and qualitatively); which needs / requirements shall be made to the system in relation to the requirements given by current procedures and practices
  3. obtain a suitable system that corresponds with point 1 and 2 above
  4. make the system available to the organization and ensure that the organization actually starts using the system.

The target group of the project is NTNU and cooperating organizations.

ITIL - Service Quallity

To achieve improvement in service quality with satisfaction at every stage, NTNU IT has chosen to use the ITIL framework. This is a highly recognized framework for IT operations processes based on "best practices", i.e. "perform work in a way that works and is recognized within the industry".
