Step Change in Safety has launched completely self-contained Human Factors Presenters Pack that’s worth a look.
It is said that 80 per cent of accidents involve human factors although that really depends on how rigorous you do your Why Trees and Root Cause Analysis. There certainly are concerns about human factors analysis but it is a useful tool that may, with a following wind, improve safety.
Obviously the pack is aimed at managers and HSE folk but it is also worth you, yes you, going through to get a feel for human factors and your role and that of the people you supervise, as well as equipment and procedures, in accidents.
The pack includes a customisable Powerpoint presentation, sample case studies you can use, giveaway leaflets and checklists and even a poster to advertise your silver-tongued presentation.
