Human Factors for Safety Critical Organisations
Regardless of industry type or sector, accident statistics appear to be dominated by the contribution of human error. This is hardly surprising since humans are involved in the design, construction, maintenance, operation and management of complex socio-technical systems.
While human error is a normal part of our human makeup, the consequences of errors in safety critical industries such as transport, energy, mining and healthcare delivery can be disastrous and the subject of public outrage, exhaustive inquiries and drawn out legal action.
Our human factors courses and workshops for safety critical organisations are highly interactive and thought provoking and participants are encouraged to share stories, compare ideas and workshop solutions to human factors challenges with expert facilitator support. A number of case studies presented throughout will reinforce generic human factors issues and management solutions across various domains.
Whether you are a safety manager, accident investigator or CEO, our program will provide you with an opportunity to understand the cause and consequences of human error and assist you with identifying practical strategies to design error tolerant solutions.
