Our modular Human Factors in Health and Safety training programme will help to increase understanding of key human factors topics relevant to safety in the chemical and process industries.
Jointly developed by IChemE and the Keil Centre, a recognised centre of excellence in human factors, it focuses on how to manage human factors effectively in order to drive safety standards and overall business performance.
Human Factors in Health and Safety consists of four modules, supported by independent reading. The modules are independent of each other and can be completed in any order. You can sign up for all four to get a comprehensive overview of human factors, or attend single modules to develop understanding in a particular area.
