The Center for Operator Performance is a diverse group of industry, vendor, and academia representatives addressing human capabilities and limitations with research, collaboration, and human factors engineering.
Our mission to raise the performance level of our operators and improve Health, Safety, and Environmental effectiveness is accomplished through:
- Openly sharing knowledge and ideas,
- Including vendors in research decisions,
- Teaming with leading human factors researchers and universities, and
- Collaborating with a focus on HS&E.
We understand the operational realities that operating safely requires redundancy of many components and operating competitively requires lack of redundancy of the human component. These complexities keep plant operators at the center of improving operational performance and at the center of our efforts bringing research insights into process plants.
Companies who can join the Center for Operator Performance include refineries, pipelines, process plants, mills and suppliers. The Center is operating company driven, with research chosen for and by the operating companies. We invite you to become a participating member.
