The Human Element Part Of Confined Space Operations


Confined Space; Human Performance


This research is a proactive approach to the identification of factors that affect human performance in a confined space and develops a Confined Space Human Performance Model evaluation tool to determine the risk level, in order to reduce or mitigate injury or fatality, and optimize human performance of confined space operations. A literature review of journals, National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, Bureau of Labor Statistics, National Occupational Health Survey of Mining and U. S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, identifies physical, physiological and psychological factors which impact worker performance in a confined space. Model validation consisted of evaluating confined space tasks. Copyright © 2004 The Boeing Company. All Rights reserved.
