Hoisting: What could possibly go wrong?

The handling of hazardous materials requires the careful consideration of potential human errors and their consequences. Further to several risk assessment and safety justification activities in support of hoist equipment and hoist operations design, a baseline model of hoisting operations, potential human error and consequences was developed. This model is presented as a useful starting point for any safety assessor undertaking hazard analysis in the context of high-hazard hoisting operations.

Adrian Wheatley will introduce the topic of nuclear hoisting and discuss the potential error modes, consequences and Performance Shaping Factors.

The session will provide an opportunity to network, share ideas and experiences associated with human factors support to hoisting safety and beyond.
