A 2-day training course addressing Human Factors issues in COMAH Safety Reports, teaching delegates how to carry out Human Factors Safety Critical Task Reviews.

Why the EI's Human Factors Safety Critical Task Analysis training course?

Human Factors is recognized as a key topic for addressing safety in the oil, gas, onshore chemical plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing and power generation sectors.

This course covers all the topics necessary to produce the human factors analyses to satisfy COMAH safety report submissions, together with guidance on producing the associated procedures and competency management documentation based on these analyses.

Key benefits:

Learning outcomes:

Upon completing this training course, delegates should:

  • Be able to develop a programme of work to address human factors in process safety, with particular emphasis on satisfying regulatory requirements such as COMAH
  • Understand the different types of human error that need to be addressed within process safety
  • Be able to apply the HFCTR tools during new plant design or modifications
  • Be able to identify safety critical tasks
  • Have an awareness of, and be able to use, techniques such as Hierarchical Task Analysis, Human Failure and Consequence analyses, and Performance Influencing Factors evaluations (Human Factors Critical Task Reviews, HFCTR) for simple tasks
  • Be able to develop procedures and competency requirements  based on the results of the HFCTR analyses
  • Be aware of modelling and assessment tools for evaluating Human Error Probabilities for use in Quantitative Risk  Assessment
