Briefing Note No.16


Energy Institute Briefing Note No. 16 - Human Factors Integration

For systems to operate safely and effectively, they should be designed to support the people who operate them. Human factors (HF) is regarded by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) as having an essential contribution during the development and operation of systems. Experience shows that it is ineffective to address HF as an afterthought. HF is not a stand alone activity. Best practice is achieved only when HF is integrated into the mainstream of systems development.
