The Keil Centre experts’ book, Human Factors in the Chemical and Process Industries, provides the background knowledge and practical guidance for managing human factors in the workplace.
HUMAN FACTORS IN THE CHEMICAL AND PROCESS INDUSTRIES
The book was inspired by the international human factors training course run by the Keil Centre with IChemE, which has reached four continents across the world. The book is written for those who want a comprehensive overview of the subject, focusing on the practical application of human factors. It has been written for safety professionals, engineers and operational disciplines within industry, and those aspiring to these disciplines, who either deal with human factors issues or any aspect of the human element in their core role.
