1. Safety Management and human factors evaluation of selected offshore construction projects for Statoil (Norway), relating to the design (particularly of structural components), construction and testing phases and the marine (deck-mating, towing, ballasting) operations - of particular interest were the human error aspects to be incorporated into the QRA and the development of a design audit technique focused around one key structural component of the design

  2. Evaluation of human errors of commission in a Dutch chemical accident, including assessment of the ATHEANA technique for human error analysis for the Dutch nuclear inspectorate and for Ministry SZW (NL

  3. Key participant in the European I-Risk research project for integrated risk assessment for releases of hazardous substances, designing the interface between the technical and management models, and auditing a Dutch refinery Accident analysis of transportation of dangerous goods to identify underlying causes, for the Dutch Ministry of Transport, V&W (NL)

  4. Evaluation of human contribution to pipework and vessel failures with emphasis on LOC of dangerous substances for the British Health and Safety Executive (UK), providing the fundamental basis for the HSE’s STATAS audit.

Human reliability assessments, human factors evaluations

  1. Currently a member of the Dutch WORM project which is developing the QRA model for occupational safety in the Netherlands. White Queen structured and prepared the proposal for this multi-million-Euro risk assessment project as part of the Dutch programme "Strengthening Labour Safety. Linda Bellamy is responsible in WORM for scenario development, interfacing with the Data Group, user interfaces and software including mock-up.

  2. A sociotechnical "pyramid" which became the basis for the control and monitoring loop of the SMS audit, human reliability being at the peak of the pyramid.

  3. AVRIM2, ("a piece of cake") which takes a slice out of the integrated human and technical system (also the "bowtie" model for modeling the risks and linking to lines of defence).

  4. Technical component driven models for designing phase audits such as the work Linda Bellamy did on offshore construction after the spectacular sinking of the Sleipner in the construction phase (the design of the flexi-joint between platform and legs was the basis for the whole design audit)

  5. Interface component of the I-Risk model for an EU study on integrating SMS into risk assessment.  This model came up with the 8 delivery systems of the management system to be assessed in the QRA.

  1. Developing a technique for evaluating how design meets functional requirements and communications support especially in emergencies such as for Enterprise Oil (UK)

  2. General control room design issues including ergonomics aspects such as lighting, noise, workspace, screen design and human reliability issues for example for BP (UK).

  3. Human factors review onsite of an offshore platform in a construction yard by the Caspian Sea for BP in Azerbaijan.
