The EI has published a new research report – Human factors performance indicators for the energy and related process industries. The report is available here.
The report was jointly funded by HSE, Lloyds Register and the EI, and explores what performance indicators are and how they are used, and proposes a methodology for selecting human factors performance indicators for each of the HSE top 10 key human factors issues. The report also provides a list of example human factors performance indicators which are already being used by industry or which could potentially be used.
Performance indicators for human factors is a fairly new and contentious topic. It should be noted that the research report is an initial step in exploring this topic, and so should not be regarded as mature guidance. The EI would therefore greatly welcome any feedback that you may have on this publication, especially if you have used it or intend to make use of it in developing performance indicators.
