Man vs Machine: The Evolution of Human Operators in Process Safety
Originally, industrial plants and processes were controlled entirely by human operators. With the rapid development of automated control systems, operators seem to have been laid aside.
However, even in the most automated plant, humans still have a role to play in operations. In fact, if the working environment is designed ergonomically, to suit both human bodies and human brains, the synergy between machines and their human counterparts can lead to minimal vulnerability in plants and processes.
Given the respective advantages and disadvantages of human beings and Automated Control Systems (ACS) as operators in industrial plants, it makes sense to attempt to get the best of both worlds.
