The issue of 'human factors' is attracting increasing interest, as it offers the possibility of further improving the safety of petroleum industry operations. This new Report is a record of the IP's workshop held on 28 November 2001 which was convened to share experts' knowledge of human factors and to help businesses to start to apply human factors to their operations.
It includes speakers' presentations from the upstream and downstream petroleum sectors, regulators and leading industries, and key points presented by them, as well as the main issues arising from a working session. A way forward is proposed to enable better understanding and application of human factors in the petroleum industry.
Essential reading for employers and employees, legal advisers, regulators and consultants. A colour version of the same information is available on the IP's website at www.petroleum.co.uk/humanfactors.
