The course is designed for those requiring a working understanding of Human Factors. It will be relevant to delegates in most industrial sectors, including defence and manufacturing, such as:
- Engineers and designers who make decisions which could affect the usability [and hence the operational capability] of a new or modified system or item of equipment.
- Project Managers, Support Managers and Operations Managers requiring an understanding of HF for effective decision-making at all points in the project cycle.
- Operators of machinery in process industries who wish to avoid musculoskeletal disorders, reduce fatigue and optimise their working conditions.
On completion of this course, delegates will have a basic grounding in Human Factors on which they can build. They can be expected to be aware of the importance and value of a person-centred approach.
The knowledge they gain from the course will benefit professionally and benefit their sponsoring organisation through improved product design, safety and productivity.
The course consists of eight complementary modules. The course presentation is largely audiovisual - interspersed with short practical exercises in order to encourage delegate participation and reinforce the key principles.
The course adopts an analytical and incisive approach to the subject area, with minimal technical jargon and an accessible style.
The course includes a description of health and safety legislation, where this is relevant. National and international standards being discussed.
All delegates are issued with a comprehensive course booklet and certificate of attendance.
Discounts of 5% for the second delegate and 10% for the third and subsequent delegates from the same organisation are available.
The ‘Early Bird’ rate is £450+VAT, and is available until 1st February 2016
