Some aspects of project can be adjusted with social-cognitive demands as alarm management, layout of control room, and information management. Abstract The Accident pyramid must be investigated at its bottom part to find causal relations in latent area of failure. The quality of social and cognitive functions are identified and adjusted to result in desired group profile. The earlier that consideration is given to human factors and ergonomics in the design process, the better the results are likely to be.
A clear and practical guide for sites moving to DCS control and centralised control rooms. After understanding how work the operation, what are the requirements to work, job organization at site, what are the safety culture and organization aspects, the critical activities, the rules, and the risk sceneries at project, we need to understand the regional legislation, stereotypes, and local archetypes with respective rules of behaviour.
The esmua and commission are human errors that must be investigated as social phenomena. Published by Elsevier B. This is a very detailed document and can be applied to all industry sectors. Designing tasks, equipment and work stations to suit the user can reduce human error, accidents and ill-health.
Human factors/ergonomics - Design
Implementation in the onshore and offshore industries Gives an overview of emua practice on how to build human factors into design. Consideration should be given to the interface between the end user and the system. After identification of risks in the technology, a discussion is begun about social and cognitive risks where we can find the causes to cognition failure.
It sets out to raise your awareness of some of 210 ergonomic problems in the offshore workplace; to explain the causes of ergonomic related accidents and injuries, and to provide some practical information to help reduce the risks.
HSE aims to reduce work-related death, injury and ill health. Available from BSI Standards.
Human factors: Design
Failure to observe ergonomic principles can have serious eemuz for individuals and for the whole organisation. Effective use of ergonomics will make work safer, healthier and more productive.
Poor design contributes to work-related ill-health and has been found to be a root cause of accidents including major accidents e. See also Case studies Articles. Download full text in PDF Download. Key principles in design Equipment should be designed in accordance with key ergonomics standards including EN Parts 1 and 2.
Note that this approach has been developed in relation to large projects e. The Accident pyramid must be investigated at its bottom part to find causal relations in latent area of failure.
A resource pack The purpose of this resource pack is to provide an introduction to ergonomics for people who work offshore. The social aspects that are discussed and that impact on cognitive functions are: Consideration should be given to all foreseeable operating conditions including upsets and emergencies.
