E-Learning: Human Factors Basics

Course Overview

Have you ever done something wrong and instantly felt your stomach drop to your boots? Perhaps you sent a sensitive email to the wrong person, or got injured using a piece of equipment? None of us are immune to making mistakes… after all, we’re only human!

Human error can occur for a number of reasons:

  • The way our brain processes information
  • Our training – or lack of it
  • The design of our equipment and procedures; the culture of the organisation we work for.

Understanding how and why we get things wrong is an important factor in preventing and mitigating potentially serious incidents in the workplace and beyond.

During this course we’ll highlight the type of human errors that can occur, explore the traps that most of us fall into, and look at how we can manage situations to reduce error in the future.
