Human Factors in Ship Design & Operation - London 2014

RINA is presenting Human Factors in Ship Design & Operation. The conference on 26th & 27th February will be held at the Royal Institution of Naval Architects headquarters, London UK.

The work of naval architects and marine engineers directly influence the operability and safety of the vessel and the seafarer. Decisions made at the design stage can influence human behaviour and health. An improved understanding of ergonomics by engineers can ‘design out’ hazards and prevent incidents, both to the individual and the vessel.

With ever more complex systems and technology, greater improvements in safety can be achieved through a better understanding of human/system dynamics. A greater awareness of the role played by management structures, culture, procedures and regulation in safe and effective operation is also important to the effective running of the vessel and wellbeing of the crew.

This conference aims to bring together international specialists and professionals including designers, ship operators, seafarers, equipment manufacturers and regulators to highlight how an improved understanding of human factors can reduce costs and improve safety. Topics include:-

Design for occupational health and safety
Integration of human factors into the design process
Feedback from the users into the design loop
Examples of practical applications of human factors engineering
Design of navigation & control systems
Maritime operating organisations and teamwork
Safety performance and management
Survivability, escape and evacuation systems
Habitability
