HUMAN FACTORS IN RISK ANALYSIS OF OFFSHORE MARINE OPERATIONS

Due to large values often at stake in offshore marine operations, risk analysis and frequency and also risk reduction become increasingly crucial. Operations which rely significantly on human skills (and cognitive responses), however, are rather difficult to assess, since risk data on human error probability for marine operations are practically non-existent. The state-of-the-art on risk analysis methods is described and recommendations are given as to what can be done to control risk in highly human involved operations. As real-time (full-mission) simulations offer unique possibilities in this field, the programme carried out for the Sleipner A tow-out is outlined and validated against the real life operations.
