Human Factors in Electricity and Gas Distribution
Human Factors training can assist organisations involved in the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and natural gas to reduce accidents and incidents throughout the field work force. Human Factors training differs from traditional safety training in that the focus is less with the technical knowledge and skills required to perform specific operations, but rather with the cognitive and interpersonal skills needed to effectively manage a team-based, high-risk activity.
GAT HF training delivers a set of safety skills that include teamwork, situation awareness, decision making, communication and workload management. HF training recognizes that human error is inevitable and that the team is the greatest asset to achieving safety and high reliability in complex and hazardous work environments. It considers the human causes of error and delivers a proactive approach to avoid, trap and mitigate errors.
The HF Foundation Course is 1 day and suitable for field and control room personnel, mangers and supervisors. This course may be delivered at clients' location worldwide. The course syllabus may be adjusted to suit the specific needs of the organisation. A typical syllabus will cover:
- Human error
- Workload management
- Teamwork and behaviour
- Decision making
- Fatigue management
- Situational awareness and vigilance
- Case studies
