Training methods used by leading airlines have been adapted for the offshore oil and gas industry.
HFB Consulting, which boasts more than 20 years at the fore of “human factors” in commercial aviation, worked with Aberdeen-based oil and gas performance specialist Salos Sunesis to develop training courses, toolkits, techniques and strategies for the offshore sector.
The two firms say their bespoke oil and gas Advanced Human Factors programme will bring significant performance and safety benefits.
Salos managing director Grant Wallace said: “In industries where safety is critical, human factors are typically behind more than 80% of major accidents – and this is equally true in the oil and gas industry.
“Around 30 years ago the aviation industry recognised that by training employees in human factor techniques they dramatically improved safety and operational performance.
“HFB Consulting are real experts in this area, and our new partnership enables us to introduce proven cutting-edge techniques from the safety-critical world of aviation to the oil and gas sector in a way not previously seen.”
