IOGP 454: Human Factors Engineering


Human factors engineering in projects

Human Factors Engineering (HFE) focuses on the application of human factors knowledge to the design and construction of socio-technical systems. The objective is to ensure systems are designed in a way that optimises the human contribution to production, and minimises potential for design-induced risks to health, personal or process safety or environmental performance. This publication adopts a practical, cost-effective and balanced approach to applying HFE on projects.

The publication was jointly developed by the Energy Institute (EI) and International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP), and supersedes the first edition of IOGP 454 Human factors engineering in projects.
