Understanding how human factors (HF) influence human performance is increasingly important as a management aid.

There are many reference books and websites concerned with HF and, although the terms are in common use in industry, it can be difficult to easily find out what a particular HF issue is really about. The Energy Institute (EI) briefing notes provide a useful introduction to each HF subject and refer to the role of managers in organising tasks and work conditions. They point to useful data and methods for improving performance and:

  • Introduce each subject with a definition.
  • Illustrate problem areas and solutions using case studies.
  • Provide a checklist of questions to gauge whether your company has a problem.
  • Suggest what company/management can do to address the specific HF issue.
  • List references/useful sources of information.

Human factors briefing notes - Resource pack includes the complete collection of briefing notes, contained in their own folder.
