The course focuses on humanerror as a cause of incidents, how human factors can be addressed during incident investigation andthe cause tree analysis technique.What the course will cover:Session 1 - Incident CausationThe benefits of good incident investigation are reviewed and the domino theory of incidentinvestigation is explained as the basis for structured cause analysis.Session 2 - Human Error and Incident InvestigationThe SRK human error model is developed from practical process industry examples and then anexercise is used to test understanding and consider the difficulties of addressing human error using areal process incident. This is followed by consideration of the way that corrective actions can bedeveloped according to the types of errors that are encountered.Session 3 - The Incident Investigation ProcessThe basic investigation process - from evidence collection to corrective action development - isreviewed, including good practice for evidence collection and witness interviews.
Session 4 - Cause Tree AnalysisThe technique of cause tree analysis is explained and a number of real examples, of increasingcomplexity, are reviewed to point out the key facets and good practice.Session 5 - Cause Tree Analysis ExerciseA syndicate exercise, based on a real incident, is used to enable delegates to work in teamsconstructing a cause tree. A significant amount of time is allocated to enable delegates to explore thechallenges of using the technique.

Human„assets‟ are both flexible and adaptable, making them unique and valuable in a variety of situations.Unfortunately the very attributes that make people valuable to the production organisation leavesthem prone to error, which itself leads to the potential for safety incidents and unplannedoutage.Managing and reducing human error potential brings benefits to both safety performance andefficiency, reducing both incidents and outages.The practical application of human factors principles (sometimes known as ergonomics) is a currentindustry „hot topic‟, with increased attention being shown in the subject by production management,safety professionals, insurance inspectors / assessors and national regulators.Why ABBABB Consulting has a heritage of providing world class process safety and operational improvementsolutions to the process industry. Over 30 years of operating experience ensures that our solutionsand training packages are grounded in a practical and realistic approach that our customersappreciate. Our human factors training courses are prepared and presented by experiencedpracticising human factors consultants.
What the course will coverThe course runs for three days; day one is an introduction to human factors in the workplace; day twocovers tangible measures to assess and improve human performance in operations, with day threebringing in human factors in design.The course utilises case studies from the process industries and from other industries such asnuclear, aerospace, and transport in order to illustrate key points and learning from the widestpossible experience base. Learning will be reinforced with group and individual exercises building onthe course materials presented.Alternative Dates27th - 29th March, Marriott V&A Hotel, Manchester19th - 21st June, Marriott Hotel, EdinburghWhenTuesday, 11 December, 2012 - Thursday, 13 December, 20129:00 AM - 4:30 PM
