Statistics show that 70% of the accidents in the oil & gas industry are caused by human error. Modern industries work at a high speed, in hazardous environments and are subject to rapid changes. These same industries are controlled by humans. However, humans are subject to distraction, stress, illness, and any number of other factors – in other words, subject to error.
