Call for abstracts: ‘Human factors application in major hazard industries’ conference, Aberdeen, 5-6 October 2015

Call for abstracts deadline: 30 March 2015 

This biennial 2-day conference returns for the 3rd time in 2015, exploring the practical application of human factors in the management of major accident hazards (MAH) in the energy and allied process industries. The event will focus on two key themes:

  • Assuring human factors performance: How can we ensure high performance through human and organisational factors?
  • Preventing incidents before they happen: How can we effectively investigate and analyse incidents and embed learning and how can we prevent incidents before they even happen?

This conference, organised by the Energy Institute (EI)’s Human and Organisational Factors committee and the Stichting Tripod Foundation, will enable the learning and sharing of good practice between companies and industries, and offers excellent networking opportunities with delegates from around the world representing operating companies, suppliers, consultancies, and academia.
