Human Factors in Health and Safety, Module Three: Strengthening Organisational Performance - UK
Dr Paul Jackson trained as a psychologist, obtaining his PhD from Imperial College, London. For the last 18 years his work has focused on human performance impairment, and in 2005 he set up Clockwork Research, a London-based consultancy that works with safety-critical organisations to manage the risks associated with fatigue.
Paul and his team have designed fatigue management training programmes for a range of clients including BP, Shell and Newmont Mining, and recently completed development of BP’s online fatigue training programme which is now being rolled out around the world.
Previously, Paul was a research manager at the Department for Transport (DfT) where he was responsible for impairment research, looking at the effects of illicit drugs, medications, alcohol and fatigue on driving. In addition to his work on fatigue, he has worked closely with the DfT in the development of new legislation on drug driving.
