Technical Talk on “Human Factors Engineering in Major Oil and Gas Projects”
Venue: Wisma IEM
Date & Time: 16 Nov 2019 (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM) Closed

Organised By Technical Division - Oil, Gas and Mining Engineering

SYNOPSIS

Oil and Gas facilities have diverse operational requirements due to the difference in user populations and the design intent of the facilities. Most facilities design is focused on the process requirements rather than the operations of the facilities. The term human factors covers all handling of materials, equipment, human machine interfaces and managing people within the facilities.

Key human factors topics are touched upon. The operational needs such as spatial requirements, human-machine interfaces and regulatory compliance for the facilities are summarized based on the current practices.  Usage of human factors engineering tools and others operational studies in design development activities will be discussed as well.

There is a common aim from operational and process that is to produce a reliable and safe facilities design. Any apparent gap between the operational requirements and current facilities design products may result in low efficiency, higher risks exposure and lost time injuries. And these would be faced by the operator through the facilities life.  In addition, there is a growing demand in the industry that stresses lower manning in the facilities, focused on operational needs and safety culture.  Therefore, implementation of human factors engineering during early design phase is required in addressing these gaps.

This talk is intended to provide engineers with a brief awareness of human factors engineering implementation relating to major oil and gas projects, such as production platforms and FPSOs.
