Human Factors in Design

Human performance is directly influenced by design, and poor design is a primary cause of human failure, whether it is the way information is presented, the layout of controls, the physical workspace or aspects of the environmental design.

Human Factors Engineering (HFE) is the application of human factors to the design of systems to enable the end users’ needs to be met. The Keil Centre has considerable expertise, having worked across many safety critical industries and with different complex systems. We have been involved in nearly 60 control room projects which is why this application is presented as a specific area of expertise. We also review the design of existing systems and workplaces.
