Overview

There is increasing emphasis on the importance of managing human factors to achieve improved safety in process industries. This is a multidisciplinary science that focuses on:
  • Interactions between humans and the work system
  • Designing human–machine interactions that optimise human and system performance

Human factors engineering (HFE) is about making it easy for people to do things right and difficult for them to do things wrong.

Major accidents have highlighted the importance of addressing this aspect of performance, e.g. wrong operator response, slow response and incorrect diagnosis.
