IChemE Offers Human Factors In Health And Safety Online Training

Aug. 25, 2020
Four training modules cover how human factors affect performance and health and safety within the process industries.

The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) offers its Human Factors in Health and Safety training online. The training covers how human factors affect performance and health and safety, and how it can be managed effectively within a process industry organization.

There are four training modules to choose from: 

  • how to manage human factors effectively
  • how to pro-actively manage human failure
  • how to strengthen organizational performance
  • the key human factors issues to address at the design stage

Human Factors in Health and Safety trainers are highly experienced human factors specialists with significant process industry experience, according to IChemE. The coursework provides a comprehensive overview of the topic together with practical advice to help implement human factors solutions. The training is reportedly endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.

The program is fully flexible and can be completed at an individual’s pace (which may be a mix of online modules in 2020 and face to face training in 2021). Each online module will be delivered via four live sessions (approximately two hours in length each, with a choice of session times) over four consecutive days, pre-course reading and some independent study using pre-recorded videos. Delegate places are limited to ensure maximum contact time with the trainers and peers. IChemE advises early booking. The first online sessions start September 14.
