‘Human error’ often occurs because of badly designed equipment interfaces or poorly laid out work environments. Common examples include;

  • Critical equipment that is difficult to access for operation, maintenance or inspection purposes.
  • Lack of space to work safely and reliably or to lay-down tools and equipment.
  • Instrument and control panels that is confusing or difficult to understand.
  • Equipment that is poorly or ambiguously labeled.
  • Graphical DCS displays that are confusing or involve difficult or complex interactions.
  • Alarm systems that overwhelm operators with unnecessary detail.

This training aims to provide an awareness of design and layout considerations necessary to ensure that work systems and working environments allow operations and maintenance personnel to work safely, efficiently and reliably.
