Oil and Gas

IHF possesses significant operational and corporate experience within Oil & Gas. Our pragmatic approach to Human Factors issues and challenges within Oil & Gas has seen IHF successfully collaborated with major North Sea operators such as BP, EnQuest, Nexen and Maersk to deliver cost effective and measurable outcomes that reduce opportunities for human error whilst improving business efficiency.
Complementing Human Factors consultancy services, IHF have experience designing and delivering highly experiential and interactive training for organisations of all sizes within complex and or safety critical organisations. Ranging from Safe Systems of Work, to Human Factors Awareness courses, to tailored behavioural safety and soft skills training.


Examples include:
Nexen (CNOOC) - IHF were brought into Nexen, specifically to develop new management and safety-management systems. At the heart of this project was the design, implementation, training and sustainment phases of a new Control-of-Work (CoW) system (including a new electronic Permit-to-Work system) which produced a more efficient and reliable safe-system-of-work across Nexen’s North Sea assets.  

BP - IHF’s work for BP Global Upstream and UK Operations included the re-writing and re-formatting procedures and checklists, from diverse areas such as over-side working, temporary habitats, ground excavation, working-at-height, risk assessment and mechanical and electrical isolations. In a nutshell, this was all associated with existing control-of-work systems. IHF also developed a fatigue-management strategy for UK-use, including theoretical and practical applications, from a human-factors perspective.
