Abstract Accidents such as the Piper Alpha disaster illustrate that the performance of a highly complex socio-technical system, is dependent upon the interaction of technical, human, social, organisational, managerial and environmental factors and that these factors can be important co-contributors that could potentially lead to a catastrophic event. Health, Safety and Environment is considered as the top priority among the activities carried out in an oil gas industry. The oil industry has commitments to develop and maintain the technologies, standards, best practices and programs which are essential to enhance the workplace safety.

Aug 01,  · Insomnia is a common problem in offshore shift-work environments. In rotating shift-work environments, daylight and darkness cues are incongruent with sleep and work schedules. As a result, many shift workers find it hard to adapt to the schedule, resulting in suboptimal sleeping patterns and increased workforce fatigue.

Feb 03,  · Evidence shows that some of the industry-related accidents during the last few decades, such as Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, Bhopal, and chemical spill into Rhine and Valdez, have all occurred in the middle of the night, and, according to the investigations, the main cause of these accidents was reported to be shift work and human errors Cited by: Sep 25,  · The role of Human Factors, in complex environments like the oil and gas industry, has seen a paradigm shift over a very short span of time recently. Past studies have limited focus on the human system interfacial directbuyarticles.com: Raj Kiran, Saeed Salehi, Catalin Teodoriu.

It is intended to supplement HSE’s generic guidance (HSG) on shift work and fatigue risk by providing emergent knowledge and sector specific information to support the UK offshore sector in fatigue risk management. The offshore oil and gas industry operates a diverse range of shift work schedules, with uncertainty as to which are the most appropriate in terms of health and safety.

Night-shift work causes desynchronisation of the work and sleep periods with the circadian rhythm (body clock). Abstract. Health and safety are often discussed in the same breath but the relationships between them are not clearly articulated.

The current study was conducted in the UK offshore oil and gas industry – a physically and mentally challenging work environment - where the well-being of personnel is important for their performance. Aug 01,  · Specific examples include the tendency for night shift workers offshore to actually adapt to the night-phase shift offshore and the relatively good sleep quality reported during night work.

Managing poor sleep and fatigue should therefore be a top priority for offshore O&G organizations. Working hours in the offshore petroleum industry Katharine R. Parkes, Ph.D. University of Oxford, UK. work and overtime’ is high on the list of human factors end-of-shift alertness.

They work in a wide variety of industries including the emergency services, healthcare, the utilities, transport, manufacturing (including oil, gas & chemical industries), entertainment and retail.

Relevant. human factors in relation to health and safety, the aim is to optimise human performance and reduce human failures. However, the effects of longer offshore tours of duty have received very little attention or research. Given current industry shift pattern trends, there is a pressing need to address.Offshore shift work schedules.

During offshore operations, some shift workers work in night shifts for multiple weeks in a row. During these shifts, daylight exposure is missing or completely reversed. This makes it hard to completely adjust to the imposed shift work schedule [Waage, et al., ()].This information sheet sets out some basic principles for setting a policy on working hours offshore.

Offshore Information Sheet 7/ Guidance for managing shiftwork and fatigue offshore1 addresses the problems of shift design and integration into the safety management system (SMS) along with the management of fatigue associated with shift work.
