One Day Human Factors Audit of Your Plant

Special Offer from Beville Engineering:

From Three Mile Island to OSHA 1910.119 to the recent tragedy at Texas City, human factors have been identified as a major issue in the design and operation of complex and hazardous facilities. While you know this, do you find yourself asking the following questions:

  • What are human factors?
  • Do I have a problem?
  • How serious?
  • What can I do about it?
  • What is it going to take?
  • Where do I start?

If you have been in operations or process control for any length of time, you can probably go into a facility and quickly get a rough idea as to the “health” of the plant in your area of expertise. David Strobhar (PE) has been doing human factors analyses of process plants for over 30 years and, like you, it doesn’t take long for him to assess the human factors characteristics of your facility.

Mr. Strobhar will come to your location for one day and evaluate the following human performance variables:

  • Alarms,
  • Displays,
  • Procedures,
  • Training, and
  • Staffing

An oral report summarizing noted issues/problems/solutions will be made at the end of the day. The cost for the one-day analysis is $6,000 USD + travel expenses (this price available for Continental US only – contact us for other locations).

For more information, you can call us at 937-434-1093 or email us at
