||HEPI: A new tool for human error probability calculation for offshore operation
||Apr. 2006, Vol.44, No.4, p.313-334. Illus. 26 ref.
||Offshore operations are particularly susceptible to human error because of the complex working environment. There is a need to provide techniques of human error quantification that can be embedded in the main framework of quantitative risk assessments. This article describes a new human error probability index (HEPI) based on the SLIM (success likelihood index methodology) approach. The application of HEPI could be used to limit the opportunities for human error occurrence and mitigate the results of such errors through changes in training, design, safety systems and procedures, resulting in a more error tolerant design and operation. Its application is illustrated through a case study of an incident in the offshore sector.
