The conference on Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF&E) in Business Administration : a new educational model sustaining working environment and human capital management will take place in Luxembourg on May 4, 2015 from 14:00 to 17:30 and in Brussels on May 5, 2015 from 14:00 to 17:30.
The study of Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF&E) examines the relationship between human beings and the systems with which they interact by focusing on improving efficiency, creativity, productivity and job satisfaction, with the goal of minimizing errors.
Observation shows us that being educated to up dated operational procedures as well as coaching competencies and soft skills does not necessarily provide companies with effective outcomes. It is worthy to underline that examples from industries applying human factors principles have shown that poor workforce performance and errors in the workplace have detrimental consequences – both financial and cultural- to the business and its workforce.
HF&E is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a socio-economical framework. It is the discipline that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design and uses elements of cognitive neuroscience, industrial and organizational psychology, anthropometry, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, industrial design, information design, kinesiology, and physiology. The combination of these elements acts in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.
Education for HF&E can transform a working environment where many errors can occur and professionals fail to operate in an efficient manner, into a working place of efficacy, efficiency, cognitive and mental well-being.
Human factors knowledge and principles act to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. Education of HF&E can transform a working environment where many errors can occur and professionals fail to operate in an efficient manner, into an environment of efficacy and efficiency.
Application of human factors principles contributes towards professionals’ cognitive and mental well-being, leading to excellency and a reduction of operation errors.
