Content

This course was originally developed in collaboration with Statoil, the Petroleum Safety Authority, and Institute for Energy technology (IFE). It covers a range of issues, theories, principles and practices related to the HTO and HF.

The course will give you increased knowledge on various human-technological-organizational/human factor aspects related to design, operations, and management of complex technical systems in different industrial settings, that can help minimize unwanted events as well as increasing productivity.

Risk and Complex systems perspective are the core of the course, which also includes models, methodologies, and standards at both macro and micro level in modern systems. Bringing different disciplines and business expertise together to address and exploit the different perspectives of HTO projects is central to the course

Potential candidates

The programme is highly relevant for both the private and the public sector. It is aimed at engineers with activities related to engineering systems, industrial production, process, design, operation and maintenance, risk management and cost engineering.
