“An Organisation-wide Investigation into the human factors-related causes of hydrocarbon releases on offshore platforms”

Hydrocarbon releases (HCR) are a major problem offshore, and most importantly are seen as a direct precursor to potential major accidents (MAs) (Oil and Gas UK, 2010). The UK HSE believe that of the occurring HCRs, 50-70% have causes linked in part or in whole to “things people do (or don’t do) when designing, maintaining and operating systems”, (Step Change in Safety, 2010) i.e. issues associated with Human Factors (HF).
