For the simulation of the accidental course
of events in industrial process plants, a model is needed
of operators' response to the cues presented by the system.
A model is proposed, based on the simplifications which
can be made when restricting attention to the operator
functions having significants for a probabilistic risk
analysis, and to only skill and rule based performance,
i.e., to responses in the early phase of an accident.
The model is based on Brunswik's lens model, a model of
the normal task repertoire, and on a taxonomy of human
To bring the model in perspective, a review of the state
of the art of cognitive models of human behaviour is included.
