This workgroup sits within the Competence and Human Factors Steering Group, which has the aim to Safeguard the competency of leaders, staff and contractors at all levels in safety critical roles to ensure risks are properly controlled and human factors are properly considered.
The Human Factors workgroup has the objective to Improve the basic knowledge and understanding of human factors to ensure human factor-related risks are properly managed and controlled. It does this in three ways;
- Complete the development of the Human Factors Toolkit;
- Analyse the output from the human factos toolkit to identify and understand potential cross-industry improvement areas;
- Develop the industry's knowledge and understanding of human factors to influence engagement and provide sustainability.
The 2018 focus for the human factors workgroup will be to support the Human Factors tool and create engagement through a series of forums. You can see the drafted deliverables below;

The workgroup also run 6 lunch and learns throughout the year. These lunch and learns are limited to 15 spaces each and is a great way to interact with what the workgroup are doing and how to get a better understanding of how to apply human factors within your organisation. The short video below shows some highlights from previous lunch and learn sessions.
