Poorly designed controls and a hurried master led to a collision

Step Change in Safety‘s Human Factors Steering Group has published a further three case studies which break each incident down to examine the errors or procedural violations involved and encourage the reader to not only consider how the behavioural issues identified could relate to their own work, but prompts the reader to take action. The case studies relate to:

A collision between a vessel and an installationWinch mountings failure, resulting in 20 tonne winch being dragged across deckNear miss when Helideck Assistant came within 2 ft of helicopters tail rotor
The three case studies follow on directly from the successful Human Factors – How to Take the First Steps publication, which also features a presenter’s pack with slides and speakers’ notes and allows companies to deliver their own human factors workshops in-house.
