Human Factors Guidance for Selecting Appropriate Maintenance Strategies for Safety in the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

SUMMARY

Identifies ways in which Human Factors best practice may be integrated into an offshore maintenance strategy. Over time, maintenance activities will inevitably lead to incidents/accidents due to human error. Although, it will never be possible to completely eradicate error of this nature, it is feasible to integrate controls and defences against such errors. Typically, these are implemented either during design and construction or in response to incidents and accidents. This report focuses on iterating human factors considerations within the safety case. This report recognises the fact that most installations are already operational and that maintenance is an ongoing activity.

This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the author(s) alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy
