HUman CONcepts and the importance of human factors are now generally acknowledged as crucial in order to achieve safe and reliable performance in complex production systems.
The challenge is to balance the unquestionable benefits of advanced technology to the ways humans actually are functioning, and even highly skilled and motivated professionals in the sharp end of high risk operations have their limitations. The way to mitigate incidents and errors is not always to introduce a new device or extra checklist. In spite of good intentions such measures may actually represent new and additional risks.
HUCON provides a spectrum of services enabling high-risk operations to improve their safety margins. We offer human factor training and tools transforming research and academic knowledge into applicable know-how in the unique operative context of the organization. We address individual competence development on human factors, and we focus on creating truly learning organizations with evidence based training, quality- and safety programs.
