Human Performance in Practice: Challenges and Resources

Recorded On: 04/08/2021

Despite a substantial effort on the part of many industry bodies, including the UK Energy Institute (EI) and the International Oil and Gas Producers Association (IOGP), to raise awareness of human-factors principles, with some exceptions in a few organizations, progress on implementation has been slow.

This webinar will highlight a range of challenges to the practical implementation of human performance in operations, and offer guidance through the practical resources that could be used straight away.

This webinar is categorized under the Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability technical discipline.
