Human Factors and Human Reliability


Morrison, D., Exponent Inc


Wolf-Stokes, E., The Chemours Company

Human factors involve designing machines, operations and work environments so that they match human capabilities, limitations, and needs. It is based on the study of operators, managers, maintenance staff, and other people in the work environment, and of the factors that generally influence humans in their relationship with a technical installation. These factors go beyond just basic ergonomics, human-machine interface, and occupational safety topics. This session intends to solicit new developments in implementing human factors into process safety management technology such as human reliability analysis, process hazard analysis, occupational discipline, and inherent safety.
