Modeling & Simulation plays a crucial role in the field of Industrial Disaster Management, especially because its outcomes are profoundly affected by human factors.

Abstract

Modeling & Simulation plays a crucial role in the field of Industrial Disaster Management, especially because its outcomes are profoundly affected by human factors. The present research intends to show quantitatively how human behavior affect the outcomes of disasters management on industrial sites. A case study of a fire incident in an Ecuadorian public company engaged in the exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons is proposed. Pareto analysis combined to main effect and interactions effects plots clearly show to the reader how different factors (mostly related to the personnel’s behavior and skills, interactions among workers and with the environment) affect the disaster evolutions and its outcomes in terms of loss of human lives, number of injured workers and evacuation times.
