Incidents are caused by our behaviour

We react with technical solutions !


A voice from the past
A Voice from the Past

  • Robert Blauner , Alienation & Freedom 1964

  • Studied worker alienation in several industries

  • “Advanced technology like chemicals processing would eliminate worker alienation”


Humans make mistakes
Humans make mistakes

  • E.g. Bottling line employees asked to sight bottles of Scotch whisky on a packaging line for suspected glass contaminants

  • 100% of rejected bottles found to be OK –falsely detected

  • 50% of deliberately seeded bottles got through


Action plan for industry
Action Plan for Industry

  • Develop an understanding of the basic subject matter of human factors (HF)

  • Develop an understanding of current HF issues in pertinent industry sectors

  • Develop an understanding of current arrangements used to identify & control SHE hazards in your workplace

  • From the basis of the existing systems already in place identify how HF can be incorporated


Develop an understanding of the basic subject matter of hf
Develop an understanding of the basic subject matter of HF

  • Reading

    • Key texts e.g UK HSE

    • HF specialists

    • Web

  • Training

  • Conferences


Develop an understanding of current hf issues in pertinent industry sectors
Develop an understanding of current HF issues in pertinent industry sectors

  • Conduct a HF health check within the workplace

  • Formal

    • Surveys, Interviews, Audits, Incident investigations

  • Informal

    • 1-2-1, Grapevine, Personalities


Develop an understanding of current arrangements used to identify & control SHE hazards in your workplace

  • Consult those who run and own the Safety Management System(SMS)

  • Review documents of SMS

    • Risk assessments

    • Inspections

    • Safety tours

    • Near miss investigations
