Content: Human Factors seeks to answer a couple of key questions that impact significantly on safety performance as follows:  What does a person have to do in their job?  Do they understand what they have to do?  Can they do it?  Can they do it under degraded or emergency conditions? It is too late to find out that there is a problem when someone has an accident – so how can we be more pro-active about ensuring that the answer to all these questions is yes? This seminar will present a brief introduction to the subject of human factors and share experience of human factors projects conducted in Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand and the UK. While the majority of these projects have been in rail and utilities the issues apply equally to all industry sectors.
