Human Factors in New Facility Design Tool
|Publication Date:||1 October 2005|
This document focuses only on equipment design. Items such as human error, behavior-based safety, and operating procedure issues are not in the scope.
The Tool covers equipment that is common to both upstream producing and downstream manufacturing operations. Equipment associated with specific activities, such as drilling rigs is not specifically addressed. The human factors principles described in this document are intended for new equipment designs; however, many ideas provided in this Tool may be used to improve the operation of existing plants, where feasible.
