Understanding Human Factors, Behavioral Based Safety (BBS) and SOL-X’s Holistic Approach
According to the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) 2019 report on “Annual overview of marine casualties and incidents 2019”, 2 out of 3 of all incidents between 2011 to 2018 were contributed by human factors. The Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) also issued a briefing paper in October 2020 on “The OCIMF Human Factors Approach – A framework to materially reduce marine risk”. It aims to improve safety and environmental protection in the maritime industry by considering human factors when providing guidance and recommendation.
BBS is the leading framework for operationalizing human factors. It is intended to address the effects of a given procedure, work method, selected control measures, trainings, machinery/equipment design, environmental conditions (human factors) etc. on how it influences a person to perform the task safely. SOL-X by SOL-X helps to facilitate and enable BBS cycles where BBS processes are digitalized and automated in near real time.
