Incidents are more and more frequently being attributed to human error.

Although we can design and manufacture equipment to be more reliable, finding a way to get people to make better decisions seems to be a more elusive endeavor.  Building a more reliable workforce is not an unachievable goal. It starts with identifying and understanding what it is about your system that is contributing to the decision error process in the first place. 

To that end, Vetergy is excited to announce a virtual option for its Human Factors Analysis and Classification training course. Like our classroom event, the virtual training is facilitated by a live instructor. Participants learn how to incorporate human factors analysis into their incident investigations via interactive live on-line instruction, on-line collaborative exercises, and self-paced individual work.

The course will include the following learning objectives:

  1. Understand what Human Factors, Human Reliability, and System Reliability are and how they apply to a learning organization
  2. Understand the Human Factors Taxonomy and how to use it
  3. Know the basic components and benefits of an HFACS Program
  4. Understand how to conduct and facilitate an incident investigation
  5. Know how to gather, manage, evaluate, and analyze data during an incident investigation
  6. Understand limitations to witness memory / recall and how to conduct an effective interview
  7. Be able to apply Juncture Analysis during Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
  8. Understand the Operational Juncture® and its importance to identifying latent conditions
  9. Know when, where, and how to apply Human Factor Classifications to investigation findings
  10. Understand key considerations when developing meaningful solutions to findings identified during an incident investigation
  11. Be able to effectively conduct Human Factors trend analysis to determine areas for organizational improvement efforts

At the completion of the course, students will know how to identify the latent conditions that influenced the decisions and actions leading up to an incident, how to report these findings in a meaningful way, and how to incorporate a Human Factors Analysis and Classification program into their organization’s learning process.

Vetergy Group can tailor the HFACS virtual program to your organization’s needs based on time and number of participants.
