Optimizing Reliability, Risk and Compliance through Human Factors (HF)-Masterclass

Continuing Education Units 0.8 CEUs are offered based on length of course


Safety Leadership focuses on the ‘Human Factors’ (HF) which complement technical training to optimise reliability, safety, compliance, efficiency and risks within a team-based environment. The IOGP laid down the HF skills and competencies required, and they form the basis for specialised O&G HF training’s delivered by Mission Performance. This 1-Day course reviews the key Human Factors but then also reviews what can be done to accelerate and scale operational roll-out for optimum and sustained impact, including integration with existing safety processes and (reporting) systems, refreshers, assessments, measurements as well as the role of leadership and culture.

Why Attend

Human errors account for nearly 75% of all incidents, accidents and near misses in the O&G industry worldwide. Most of these are avoidable. We typically develop and deploy many systems and processes to reduce risks and improve safety, but most organisations either overlook the role of the human in terms of criticality to safety or don’t quite know which ‘human factors’ mostly affect risk, safety and compliance or what to practically do to optimise them in an O&G environment. This course equips delegates with an understanding of how to achieve a further step change in safety through proactively using and optimising the ‘human side’ of their operations.
