Due to its nature, the Oil and Gas industry is prone to major accidents. Both upstream and downstream rely heavily on human-machine interfaces and are activities with a complex organisational structure. The work is performed by distributed teams and remotely controlled technology. Human Factors has become a vital and integral part of the industry’s approach to safe and efficient operations.
