    The better the automated systems are, the lower the situation awareness of the human operators, and the less likely that they will be able to take over manual control when needed. This is one of the ironies of automation. Automated systems rapidly grow in popularity in the oil and gas sector due to their many advantages, from reducing mistakes to improving efficiency. However, at the same time, these systems introduce new challenges and risks. Dr Endsley will introduce the “human-autonomy systems oversight model” developed based on several decades of applied research that includes out-of-the-loop performance problems, monitoring, and trust, among many others. The webinar will also provide an overview of the key solutions to reduce the risk of human performance issues when interacting with autonomous systems such as human-automation interface features, central automation interaction paradigms comprising levels of automation, adaptive automation, and granularity of control approaches.

    Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), often stemming from ergonomic risk factors, are the largest category of workplace injuries in the United States. According to the 2021 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, overexertion injuries (lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, or carrying objects) are the leading cause for disabling work-related injuries, costing businesses more than $58 billion every year. Additionally, according to NSC Injury Facts, in 2020, the U.S. private sector experienced 247,620 MSD injuries or illnesses resulting in days away from work. To address the significant risk of MSDs, the National Safety Council joined with a major industry partner in 2021 and created the MSD Solutions Lab. In this session, NSC researchers from the MSD Solutions Lab will provide an overview of the initiative and discuss work to date, including the outcome of their scoping review on MSD literature in identifying the challenges for research, innovation, and collaboration, and the building of an index for tracking organization performance to support research into practice. In summary, this session will highlight the MSD Solutions Lab initiatives by discussing current work and plans for future innovation, research, and practice to help ensure that all workplaces are free from MSDs and MSD risk so workers can thrive on and off the clock.
