As with Transportation and Healthcare, the various energy sectors stand to reap significant gains by adaptation of the Aviation Safety Model. The oil and gas industry, for example, has traditionally functioned with a teamwork culture and many operations are managed by crews, shifts and groups that are required to work together.
The CRM training approach has been adapted for use in industrial settings such as nuclear plants and offshore oil installations, particularly in control rooms and emergency command centers. CRM enhances team members’ understanding of human performance, in particular the social and cognitive aspects of effective teamwork and good decision making. This training is designed to reduce operational errors, which could cause an accident, and to give crews additional skills to deal with problems if they are faced with an emergency.
