Human factors: step change improvements in effectiveness and safety
Human factors: step change improvements in effectiveness and safety
Do you know how efficient, effective and inherently safe working practices are in your organisation? Can you determine if changes made to the infrastructure actually achieve the expected benefits? Can you make predictions to compare the most optimum change strategies for your organisation? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then we advise that you read the following guidance, which is intended to explain how organisations can enhance their most flexible and valuable resource: people. We have focussed on the twin themes of effectiveness and safety, because we believe that assessment of human performance has implications for both.

Abstract

Do you know how efficient, effective and inherently safe working practices are in your organisation? Can you determine if changes made to the infrastructure actually achieve the expected benefits? Can you make predictions to compare the most optimum change strategies for your organisation? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then we advise that you read the following guidance, which is intended to explain how organisations can enhance their most flexible and valuable resource: people. We have focussed on the twin themes of effectiveness and safety, because we believe that assessment of human performance has implications for both.
