Understanding how human factors (HF) influence human performance is becoming increasingly important as a management aid. To improve industry's understanding of key HF issues, as identified by HSE, the EI’s Human and Organisational Factors Committee (HOFCOM) commissioned the first edition of the Human factors briefing notes resource pack in 2003. The notes have now been revised, updated and expanded to cover 20 topics. They provide succinct guidance to managers on pertinent HF issues including the HSE ‘key topics’ (for example alarm handling, fatigue and safety critical procedures) and more specific HF issues, including performance indicators and leadership.
Each briefing note includes:
The briefing notes will be of interest to anyone wanting to gain an overview of HF or of particular HF issues they are facing, and to managers who are looking to apply practical solutions to solve these issues.
The resource pack format contains the complete collection of briefing notes, contained in their own folder.
Individual copies of the Human factors briefing notes are free to download in PDF format from this site or the EI's main website www.energyinst.org/hfbriefingnotes.
