Factoring the human into safety: Translating research into practice. Executive Summary for Volumes 1, 2 and 3
This is the Executive summary of the final report for the project 3661. The overall aim of the project was to develop practical programmes for the offshore oil and gas industry that can lead to: a better understanding of human and organisational factors in safety; continued improvements in safety management; and an improved safety culture throughout the industry as a whole. It brings together summaries for the three volumes contained in the report; the volumes are also published separately. Three work packages were proposed. Volume 1 is concerned with developing measures of offshore safety from a prospective viewpoint, volume 2 examines human factors aspects of offshore safety from a retrospective perspective and volume 3 presents a method for 'closing the loop' between these safety analyses and offshore safety training.
