Description

IOGP Report 368

Explore how human factors can improve HSE performance

Human factors is the term used to describe the interaction of individuals with each other, with facilities and equipment, and with management systems. This interaction is influenced by both the working environment and the culture of the people involved. What may be a good system of work in one part of an organisation, may be found to be less than ideal in a region where culturally driven attitudes to risk taking may be significantly different. Human factors analysis focuses on how these interactions contribute towards the creation of a safe workplace.
