Human factors (HF) is a discipline looking at all aspects of the human being at work. Thus, understanding HF in safety activities is crucial. This course covers the fundamentals of HF and is designed for a wide audience. The course focuses on understanding the strengths of the human being in order to intervene in the working environment to capitalise on human flexibility, adaptability and good judgement.
After completing the course, participants will have an understanding of safety issues from a human factors perspective, which encompasses individual factors, social and organisational factors, the HMI and working environment factors. Participants will be able to recognise and emphasise the strengths of the human being - such as flexibility, adaptability and learning skills - thereby enlarging the scope of HF analysis beyond human errors and incident investigation. Additionally, participants will have an understanding of the central contribution of the human factor to any safety activity, and will be able to describe how HF knowledge can be used to improve technical systems and organisations.
This course is designed for staff having any safety role and responsibility in an ATM system, and other interested persons with a good understanding of operational matters.
All candidates will receive a certificate of attendance.
