Event Details

A one-day training course in the basics of the discipline of Human factors (HF), otherwise known as ergonomics, Human Performance Engineering, user-centred design or usability engineering.  Using examples drawn from a wide range of industries, the importance of HF is emphasized and the techniques involved are explained.

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

The cost for current and ex-serving members of both UK and international Defence Forces and Civil Service personnel is £425+VAT.

About the instructor - The course is presented by Dr Dave Usher from Interaction of Bath [IoB], a consultancy which since its foundation in 1991 has developed considerable expertise in several specific HF areas.  IoB has worked in partnership with Aspire for many years, supplying training courses and consultancy services.  Their emphasis on the quality of the deliverable will ensure that those who attend this course will find it extremely valuable.

Aspire Performance Driven Training

Improving skills and performance through the most advanced, cutting edge training systems and methodologies
Aspire Performance Driven Training ( Aspire PDT) designs and delivers training in support engineering and related topics at the highest levels in international defence and civil sector organisations and also to small and medium sized enterprises.
Skills and knowledge are at the heart of the performance of every employee.  A company’s overall performance will be markedly improved by raising their employees’ skills and increasing their knowledge.
In both the civil and defence sectors, any lack of knowledge or gaps in skills could prove potentially harmful and reduce the efficiency and effectiveness of any organisation.  To realise the full potential of employee performance, it is important to correctly identify the gaps in their skills and knowledge and then to design a bespoke training, coaching and mentoring programme to facilitate improved performance.
We can deliver to you 'in-house' or at our dedicated facilities in Tamworth or Lichfield, Staffordshire. We can also produce bespoke training to your exacting requirements.
