Room 102 A/B (Convention Center)

Description:
The impact of human performance on process safety has been well recognized within industry. Efforts have been made by AIChE-CCPS (via the publication of "Guidelines for Preventing Human Error in Process Safety") to raise awareness of the importance of human factor issues and to provide tools and techniques for use in assessing human reliability. This session invites original papers that discuss key performance influencing factors and management systems for maximizing human performance, provide actual data on human reliability that can be applied to analyses within the chemical process industry, or offer methodologies for quantifying human error and reducing its frequency.
