Oil and Gas
IHF have worked in the Oil & Gas sector in Aberdeen for nearly 6 years with large operators such as Nexen, BP and Maersk Oil. Our approach to control of work has adopted a Human System Integration (HSI) approach with a focus on simplification, removal of ambiguity and with maximised user friendliness. This is key in reducing opportunities for human error. IHF’s work in O&G concentrates on the application of HF methodologies and techniques in:
- Control of work processes
- Integration of safety and business critical software systems
- Human-machine interface
- Behavioural safety training
Fatigue is an increasingly important performance-shaping factor in the UKCS, particularly because of changes in risk profiles. IHF provide a comprehensive approach to fatigue management through:
- Providing fatigue-reducing equipment
- Identifying and plugging any gaps in existing fatigue management strategies
Our training ranges from HF awareness courses, including e-learning, to bespoke offerings for senior management, and specialist offerings such as conflict resolution and teamwork/leadership training.
Sustainment concentrates on training, refined by customer feedback and investigation of near-misses and incidents from an HF perspective.

We use a competency-based approach to training that has delivered tangible improvements to the leadership capabilities of a number of organisations within the Oil & Gas sector. Competency - particularly within an industry such as Oil & Gas - is critical in reducing the opportunities for human error and consequently lowering organisational risk. Pivotal to achieving this is the existence and continued development of competent leaders whilst respecting and incorporating existing organisational, professional and national cultures.
