An important element of making a continuing demonstration of safe operation under the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations (COMAH) 1999 is that a structured and effective process is undertaken to ensure that staffing levels are adequate for abnormal or emergency situations, as well as for normal operations. Entec was commissioned by HSE to develop a practical methodology that companies could use to identify any weaknesses in staffing arrangements.

Feedback solicited by the Energy Institute identifi ed a need for guidance setting out a best practice approach to the resulting methodology (CRR348/2001) that captures lessons learnt from its use. In addition, a need was identified for supplementary guidance on how best to apply it to automated plant and/or equipment. The Energy Institute therefore commissioned Entec to develop this new Safe staffing arrangements user guide. Note that the user guide does not duplicate the contents of the CRR348/2001 methodology report, and so should be read alongside it.

This new EI document is an important human factors management tool, and essential reading for all those with responsibility for assuring the safety of staffing arrangements the petroleum, chemical and allied major hazard process industries. As a result of support from HSE, the new document is published on an open area of the Energy Institute's website. See the staffing arrangements toolbox at www.energyinst.org.uk/humanfactors/staffing for more information. Printed copies can be purchased, where required, at a subsidised rate.
