Taking account of human and organisational factors in planning and designing a high risk system
The safe and efficient operation of a new industrial facility relies on the integration of human and organizational factors (HOF) into its design, beginning in the initial stages of the project.
One of the objectives of this book, published by Foncsi, is to help practitioners to anticipate all of the factors that might come into play during the operation of the new facility, both in normal and degraded situations. It is based on an in-depth analysis of human activity in existing situations, and a simulation of probable activity during future operations.
