Human Factor Engineering study comprises to create a safe and effective working environment. The study will provide the consolidated procedure to design and construction of equipment, products, work systems, management systems and tasks. The objective is to provide equipment and systems that reduce the potential for human error, increase system availability, lower lifecycle costs, improve safety and enhance overall system performance.
There are two main objective to addressing HFE in the design of a process plant.
HFE study shall be conducted in every industry for the improved performance of the organization with less production downtime and more efficient maintenance. Understanding the risks involved in predicting the problem which in-turn includes predicting the risk of probable accident / loss scenarios. Establishing the appropriate design and right layers of protection to control risk to a tolerable level. Study shall improve the management approach to major accident hazards which is by reduce likelihood of human error, improved recovery from human errors and more efficient response to the emergency situation.
HFE Study report provides a practical, cost-effective and balanced approach to applying HFE on oil & gas projects. The report outlines design requirements for the selection, location and orientation of valves / equipment in oil & gas / petrochemical / other industries.
