Innovation through human factors in risk analysis and management

Objective

The aims of InnHF project are to offer a multidisciplinary training in the field of risk assessment and maintenance management integrated with human factors, in tight contact with companies and universities within this consortium; to strengthen and structure initial training of researchers in system engineering at European level; to attract students to scientific careers; to provide trained researchers with the necessary skills to work in industry; and to improve career perspectives by broad skills development.
The INNHF scientific main objective is thus to formalize an approach and make it possible to integrate the current and developing assessment methods recommended or required by recognized industrial standards and methodologies, with an easy to use but complete human factors and system health management approach, the following goals will be achieved:
1) Review of the applicability of most recent generation standards that are not yet fully acquired by different industries and verification of their effectiveness in safety assessment.
2) Devising a method to account qualitatively and quantitatively for the human factor in the wider applied risk assessment methodologies. Verifying how a proper account of the impact of human and organizational factors (H&OF) in the operational phase may provide a sensitive change in the results of the assessments.
3) Reviewing the methods to account qualitatively and quantitatively for maintenance effectiveness, taking also into account HOFs, verifying how a proper account of the maintenance strategy may provide a sensitive change in the results of the assessments.
4) To translate the results of the analysis performed through the novel approach in a factual design improvement initiative for new or existing plant or machinery able to provide leverage for competitive advantage (maximum availability, minimum unscheduled shutdowns of production, economic maintenance, minimum incident incident and accident).
