We are all human. Human factors is about how people interact with their working environment. Their working environment can involve people, process and plant. There are many factors which can influence their ability to perform well within this environment. To improve performance it is important to understand and manage these factors.


This online assessment tool is designed to build on The First Steps to Human Factors. This allows users to identify the opportunities for improvement within their own working environment for themselves and their organisation. This is done by the completion of assessment questions categorised as People, Process, Plant & Equipment and Incident Investigation. Each question set will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. Upon completion of the assessment you will then get instant feedback on each of the categories assessed. This feedback will help you and your company to make improvements in these areas.


This tool is designed to be relevant to everyone in the Oil & Gas industry, at all levels offshore and onshore. All data collected is anonymous. At the end of each self-assessment you will be asked to state your location and job level to allow the data collected to be analysed by your organisation to identify opportunities for improvement.


Access to this tool is available anywhere, anytime. It is easy to use on desktops, mobiles or tablets.
