OCIMF releases a new paper on its Human Factors Approach

The Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) has released a new paper outlining the organisation’s approach to human factors. The organisation’s mission, which was updated at the beginning of 2020, promises that human factors will be considered in everything the organisation does.

·            A set of principles that guide OCIMF’s actions on human factors.

·            An overall goal for OCIMF.

·            A framework to understand how human factors issues impact operations.

·            Opportunities to take action.
