Thursday 6th February, 2014
Clockwork’s Managing Director, Dr Paul Jackson, delivered a day of training for process engineers and safety specialists, on behalf of the Institute of Chemical Engineers in Edinburgh, Scotland this week.
Dr Jackson discussed the latest developments in Fatigue Management in two sessions focusing on Human Reliability and Failure, drawing upon Clockwork’s extensive experience of managing fatigue for clients in the oil and gas, mining and aviation industries. Updating last year’s module to reflect recent regulatory changes in fatigue management, the sessions were designed to provide delegates with a thorough grounding in the subject matter, with the emphasis on developing operational solutions that take account of latest scientific developments in fatigue management.
This module forms one part of the ‘Human Factors in Health and Safety’ course, organised by the Keil Centre and the Institute of Chemical Engineers, is a 1-year development programme, which builds upon the needs identified in the process industries, namely:-
- Content covering human factors in process safety, health and safety generally, with links to other aspects of business performance
- A modular course design, with short residential events spread over time, also providing networking opportunities with like-minded professionals.
- Consultancy skills development to help implement human factors solutions.
