Ian discusses situational awareness. Most people believe situational awareness is knowing what is going on around you at all times. But there’s more to it. It’s knowing what was going on around you 30 minutes ago, what happens 30 minutes from now, etc. This gives the operator the complete picture. A control room provides a lot of information, but we need to use all of our senses to know what’s actually going on. If your control room isn’t designed with situational awareness in mind, you risk being compromised.
