This 5-day face-to-face course delivers a comprehensive practical introduction to human factors for non-specialists. It provides a practical, engaging and interactive background to key topic areas and covers how human and organisational factors (HOF) can be applied within the workplace and how these influence behaviour.

You will learn the meaning and scope of HOF, the importance of HOF in high-hazard industries, and how to improve HSE performance by applying common approaches to the management of HOF in a major hazard context.

Upon completion of the course, successful delegates will receive the Human Factors Foundation Certificate from the Energy Institute and Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF), allowing them to demonstrate the skills that have been gained during the course.

It's a great opportunity to assess a overall view of HOF and its importance in the safety assessment of the industry. The content of the course covers all the main issues with the length and depth required, and the teachers have far enough knowledge and experience to provide it.

This course was very good and gave me the necessary insight required to become more involved with Human Factors (HF) during major projects. It also gave me a good understanding of techniques and methods used by HF consultants such as HRA and HTA and how they apply them and be more confident in participating in these areas.

This course provides a really good and strong introduction to HFO. The content and the trainers are good and well experienced. That helps to have a view on how HFO can be implemented in projects and organization.
