Human Factors

We apply structured analysis methods and human performance science in the design of systems, to support safe and effective operational performance and promote human wellbeing.

Human Factors aims to make systems safe, efficient and comfortable for people to use.  It applies structured analysis methods, and the science of human performance (e.g. psychology, biomechanics) to help organisations enhance system performance and safety, and to increase system resilience.  Human Factors also helps individuals, working within complex systems, to build professional expertise and enhance performance, by understanding the capabilities and cognitive skills associated with expertise.

Our consultants have substantial experience in providing human factors support to major procurement projects, and in integration of human factors principles within Safety Management Systems.  We can help with user-centred design processes, including user testing to help you to design safe and efficient systems, equipment, and procedures, that support positive human performance.
