MindSafe: The Revolution in HSE
MindSafe is conceived and designed to be an experimental environment to allow operators, safety engineers, designers, as well as managers, to have a common, integrated environment to work with and to use for grounding their HSE decisions on realistic experiments.
Thanks to its engineering infrastructure, more than simply allowing to train crews, MindSafe allows you to try whatever scenario you might think of as you would be in the plant and experience its consequences to better take decisions on how to manage the newly identified risky situations.
Where MindSafe can be applied to
MindSafe is an engineering infrastructure that can be applied and customised to accomplish many tasks, from operations up to management activities.
Thanks to its modular and flexible framework, MindSafe can be applied to:
- Monitor the different training/assessment sessions
- Keep history of the human errors by:
- Unit operation typology
- Error typology
- Scenario tested
- Keep history of performance trends function of the Human Performance Indicators (HPI)
- Plan the training/assessment sessions needed in relation to the performance history
- Monitor performance data of all plants
- Keep history of the amount of hours devoted to training and assessment
- Modify the recipients of training and assessment data
- Manage product licenses
How MindSafe looks like
MindSafe environment is made up of two separate rooms: the Control Room, which replicates the plant Control Room, and the Field Room, which replicates the process field by means of Virtual and Augmented Reality screens.
The control room operators operate on a physical replica of their real control room, furnitures included, while the field operators are immersed in a 3D environment with 3D sound and an astonishing realism that make them perceive it as their real field.
Managers can both participate to real experiments, to “touch” how difficult might be to face critical situations, and have access to a set of Key Performance Indicators on the experiments performed to ease their work.
The Field Room can be made up of as many screens as the number of operators collaborating in real-time. In its “full immersion” modules Master and Replica, Mindsafe requires immersive screens which must have a minimum dimension of 2m height x 3 m wide.
The two physical rooms are linked by the MindSafe engineering infrastructure enabling the simultaneous interaction of crew team members.
