Cal/OSHA's PSM Regulation: Human Factors
To mitigate refinery and process industry accidents, regulators have identified the need to address human factors in process safety management (PSM). Currently, regulators are working to update PSM related regulatory requirements with Cal/OSHA as the first regulation to be updated. Personnel responsible for PSM programs and other attendees will gain a better understanding of industry practices and the forthcoming revisions to Cal/OSHA's PSM regulatory requirements related to human factors.
This webinar will address the following topics:
- Underlying reasons why human errors occur
- How to examine and categorize specific human errors to identify the conditions and situations that contribute to mistakes
- Why most human mistakes and human factors are caused by error-likely situations, which typically stem from weaknesses in the policies/practices that influence how organizations select, train, supervise, communicate with and design workplaces for workers
- Human performance issues before they cause problems
- Assisting others in your organization in dealing with human performance in your operations
