Abstract This report describes an assessment of safety critical tasks for the development of the Leadon field, which uses a purpose-built FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) offshore platform. It constitutes the first step in a joint industry project to evaluate the methodology presented in offshore technology report OTO 1999/092, "Human factors assessment of safety critical tasks". Among the aspects considered: usability of the methodology; benefits of its use; typical costs to implement; modifications to the methodology; opportunities for further development. It concludes that this tool has many applications for both onshore and offshore installations, including maintenance activities, safety related critical roles and occupational health and safety.
