Human Factors In The Oil & Gas Industry

The oil and gas industry relies heavily on the relationship between humans and machines throughout the exploration and production processes. These working environments are often hazardous and the risk for major accidents occurring is high.

When systems, processes, and procedures are designed with the user in mind, you reduce the risk of injury and unsafe working conditions. By assessing and addressing the risk through several methods including design mitigation, workflow, optimization, and training human factors can assist onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities across the globe.

In addition to safety, the demands for uptime and keeping operational costs down also play a large role in the oil and gas industry. Integrating Human Factors Engineering methodologies will help oil and gas companies meet these stringent demands safely and effectively. Not only can we assist with function, task and workload analysis, but we can also aid with designing human-machine interfaces that meet users’ needs. 

Human Factors Helps to Manage Safety and Risk

When systems, processes, and procedures are designed with the user in mind, you greatly reduce the risk of injury and unsafe working conditions. We help oil and gas companies assess and address risk through several methods including: design mitigation, workflow optimization, and training.
