Human Factors Awareness Training

The Keil Centre provides Human Factors (HF) Awareness training for the hazardous industries and for non-major hazard applications. This training is focused on specific human factor topics, such as those from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), Energy Institute, the International Associate of Oil & Gas Producers (OGP) or Step Change key topics.  

The awareness course provides a key starting point for businesses to understand what human factors are and how they apply to their work.  Our training is very practical in nature, and makes use of incident-based case studies, exercises and other interactive delivery methods to maximise active learning.

We can also work with organisations to develop a course specific to their own business hazard and risk profiles, which can be further tailored to particular occupational groups, such as managers or supervisors. 

Such HF Awareness courses have been delivered to a wide range of clients, including on-and offshore oil and gas and the energy sector. Evaluation confirms that this training was successful in raising human factors awareness among delegates.
