Integrating Human Performance and Systems Design

Under­stand how a work­er’s per­for­mance is a prod­uct of their inter­ac­tions with the work envi­ron­ment, the equip­ment, and the man­age­ment sys­tems with­in their orga­ni­za­tion. Learn about the eight ele­ments of the human fac­tors spec­trum and how these ele­ments can be applied in the work­place to pre­vent inci­dents and injuries. Gain an under­stand­ing of how errors and at-risk per­for­mance can be a result of exter­nal fac­tors such as equip­ment and work­place design, infor­ma­tion trans­fer, and work envi­ron­ment, as well as phys­i­o­log­i­cal, psy­cho­log­i­cal, and risk tol­er­ance factors.
