||Jan-Mar. 2006, Vol. 28, No.1. p.53-68. Illus. 16 ref.
||The objective of this study was to evaluate and improve the alarm system in the control room of an oil refinery in Northern Europe. It involved on-site observations during several weeks, together with a review of historical incidents having caused alarms. Although the system was found to be generally safe, some improvements are proposed.
