What human factors issues contributed to the Buncefield disaster?

The EI will hold a 2-day Human factors application in major hazard industries conference in Manchester, 6-7 December 2011. 

John Wilkinson (Keil Centre) will give the keynote address, discussing the human factors that contributed to the Buncefield blast in 2005. 

John was then the lead UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) human factors investigator of the Buncefield incident, and was a long-serving member of the EI’s Human and Organisational Factors Committee.  John’s unique insight into that incident and how human factors should be managed will make for a keynote address that is not to be missed.
