Human & Organisational Factors in the Oil, Gas & Chemical Industries
25th -26th November 2010, Manchester Conference Centre
The third international conference on Human & Organisational Factors in the Oil, Gas & Chemical Industries is run by the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.
We are very pleased to announce that Andrew Hopkins will be speaking on both days of this conference. Professor Hopkins is a world renowned expert in the analysis of the causes of major industrial accidents and has assisted many organisations in improving and developing systems of prevention.
This event is the third conference in this series - previous events have been very well attended by delegates from not just the oil, gas and chemical industries, but also other major hazard industries including nuclear, railways and aviation. As in previous years, the 2010 conference has an international flavour, with speakers from the UK, US, Australia and Netherlands.
Following feedback from delegates at previous events, we have increased the contributions from industry speakers. This event is therefore a rare opportunity to hear how several major hazard organisations have addressed key aspects of human factors. There are also contributions from regulators, from the HSE in the UK, and the CSB in the US.
There will be plenty of time to network with speakers and other delegates - including during refreshments and at an informal dinner on the evening of the 25th November (included in the delegate price). During the technical sessions, there will be time to put questions to the speakers, and participate in open forums at the end of each day. For further details please click here.
