BACKGROUND TO HUMAN FACTORS TRAINING
Human Factors training differs very much so from traditional safety training. The primary focus in on interpersonal and, cognitive skills needed to effectively manage and team based activities rather than the focus being on technical knowledge and skills required to perform specific operations.
Human Factors is the understanding of what impacts on safety, and what affects performance and behavior in the workplace.
In reality, Human Factors impacts on the way people in all businesses communicate, make decisions, and deal with emergencies.
