2007 - Gas, offshore

Following a major incident on an offshore platform the client identified a number of human errors that had occurred during evacuation, escape and rescue.

Andy was asked to carry out a human factors analysis of the systems in place, taking into account the events that occurred during this incident. He visited the platform in order to observe arrangements and talk to key personnel. He then completed a task and error analysis. From this Andy made a number of recommendations for improving procedures, training and equipment arrangements.
