Process and Safety > Human Reliability Analysis (Safety Critical Task Analysis) - Human Factors

About this Training Course 

This 2-day course will introduce you to a qualitative methodology to undertake Human Reliability Analysis (HRA) – sometimes known as Safety Critical Task Analysis – which is an approach used to pro-actively assess safety critical tasks and other business critical tasks to identify realistic potential human errors so as to take steps to reduce the probability of their occurrence.

Participants will be taken through a Human Reliability Methodology, starting with capturing and decomposing a task to understand its content and context using hierarchical task analysis, through to identifying potential human errors and relevant actions to reduce human error.

The course will include practical activities to embed and provide experiential learning. Assessment templates are provided for you to take away and use within your own organisation.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the reasons why HRAs need to be undertaken
  • Describe the importance of identifying safety critical tasks and why they should be prioritised
  • Explain hierarchical task analysis, including selecting appropriate steps to decompose to a relevant level of resolution
  • Walkthrough concepts of Human Error types, Performance Influencing Factors, explain why each type of human error type can occur and what are appropriate actions to reduce the probability of human error
  • Propose a methodology of undertaking Human Reliability Analysis, including generic Performance Influencing Factors Analysis as a pre-cursor to the actual HRA, and pro-formas for undertaking the analysis

This 2-day course is aimed at personnel who need an introduction to Human Reliability Analysis. This may include: process safety managers, production personnel, engineering personnel, designers of plant.
