Due to increasing demand, energy will continue to be a growth market in the future. This includes more traditional methods of harnessing energy, such as oil, gas, and coal mining, where employment opportunities will be brisk in industries such as pipelines, petroleum refining, mining and crude-oil production, and such utilities as gas and electric. In addition, sparked by rising energy costs and an increasingly vocal, environmentally-conscious public, there is and will continue to be brink growth in “green industries,” such as wind power and solar panel manufacturing (Reference). While this trend will provide many job opportunities for engineers, especially those with structural, technical, civil, mechanical, chemical, risk and project management backgrounds, professionals in these disciplines frequently work independently and often fail to coordinate their efforts.
Because of its expertise in Human Systems Integration, Humanproof has the ability to produce a coordinated approach to energy production and use. This results in a more efficient work infrastructure, better processes and procedures, fewer accidents, and enhanced disaster recovery. Our approach is specifically designed to increase performance and morale, while decreasing workplace injuries, ultimately lowering consumer energy costs.
By systematically assessing energy industry production and manufacturing processes, as well as the workplace environment, the staff at Humanproof can help your company:
- Build and implement an effective Human Systems integration strategy and integration architecture.
- Assess the current integration environment and conduct gap analyses based on future technology plans and requirements.
- Develop necessary toolsets or custom codes.
- Assess work processes and their impact on performance.
- Conduct risk analyses.
- Assess occupational health and environmental considerations.
- Conduct testing, including technical system testing, preliminary data testing, and user acceptance testing.
- Migrate to new architecture as needed to improve workflow process and reduce human errors.
- Recommend more effective approaches to the use of safety equipment and protective devices, and redesign tasks prone to human error.
