Human Factors

Human Factors Web Page.jpgThe objective of human factors is to design systems, jobs and organisations that match human capabilities.

This helps you to maximise the safety, health and efficiency of your employees and work systems.

HSL will work with you to optimise the interactions between your people, equipment and working environment.

By addressing the human factors elements that are relevant to your operation, you can:

  • improve organisational performance by enhancing leadership, team culture and procedures
  • achieve greater efficiency and productivity through better ergonomic design and physical work layout
  • engage your employees in managing their own health and safety risks
  • better manage sickness absences arising from, for example, manual handling issues, musculoskeletal disorders, stress and fatigue.


HSL's human factors specialists can help you with:


Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders Summit 2018


Join HSE at our inaugral MSD Summit on the 21 March 2018. This summit will explain what HSE is doing to achieve this, what you can do about it and what current scientific thinking is starting to shape new and re-energised approaches to help us. Tackling MSDs needs everyone to #WorkRight and share an ambition for workers to go home healthy.

Find out more about the MSD Summit 2018.
