The Human Factor in all high-risk industries

Health and Safety is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goal of all occupational safety and health programs is to foster a safe work environment.

While most Health and Safety Courses in the workplace focus on specific skills that are required when an accident occurs - first aid, firefighting, evacuation procedures, paramedic training, etc, Human Factor Training focuses on preventing the accident in the first place by eliminating human error.

Health and Safety in Construction

Construction personnel need to maintain a level of pride in what they do, and in the responsibility and risks they carry, with the obvious risks being falls, being hit but flying objects, or accidents with machinery. The ideal is to develop an inherent culture of adherence to safety SOP’s, where staff activity is executed with an awareness of the perils or dangers in the workplace.

Human Factor Training is now available to Students & Scholars entering adulthood & needing to deal with the challenges & opportunities of modern life. Young adults often experience new & unfamiliar situations, face new responsibilities and freedoms, and new pressures in self-management.

Health and Safety in Manufacturing & Production

Just as mechanical components have limitations, humans have certain capabilities and limitations that must be considered. For example, nuts and bolts used to attach two components can withstand forces that act to pull them apart. It is clear that these bolts will eventually fail if enough force is applied to them.

Health and Safety in Mining

With accidents and injuries remaining a concern in the mining industry, Human Factor Training has become critical if accidents statistics are to be curbed, and strong Safety Cultures maintained. The Mining industry can now start to benefit from the R&D which has taken place in Aviation and Nuclear, industries known for on-going training and application of strong Human Factor skill sets.

Health and Safety in the Police Force

Police and Security personnel by the very nature of their functions operate in high risk environments. Procedural compliance, teamwork and coordination are critical to the success of their missions. These high risk situations, and the constant potential of threat, increase stress.

Health and Safety in the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear accidents can have far reaching consequences for a long time to come. Personnel in the nuclear industry have to comply strictly with procedures and any deviation can have dire consequences. Personnel have to be well trained.
