About this Podcast...

Dr Katherine Mearns, Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, joins Oil & Gas IQ to discuss her paper on situational awareness in offshore crews. She summarises the background, the concept, the research and the findings, before discussing the lessons operators can potentially take away from it.

She also offers her opinion on the offshore industry with regard to safety and the human factors involved. The interview closes with a discussion on the other studies that Dr Mearns has been involved with in the offshore industry, and areas of the oil and gas industry she would like to explore in the future.
