Human Factors (HF) provide an advanced approach to understanding the overall perspective, as well as practical models and tools for developing the management of human factors.

The perspective of human factors also helps to identify successes and things that work well. It can promote talking more openly about the factors that affect safety at the workplace – without blaming anyone.

Human factors are part of modern safety management

The HF Tool™ helps understand human activities and identify the underlying factors in both deviations and successes.

The HF Tool™ helps you observe and anticipate the human factors that affect your work. This makes them easier to highlight and take into account in contexts such as the investigation of deviations and accidents, as well as in the overall development of operations.

The HF Tool™ and our service are based on completed and currently ongoing research and development projects in several sectors.

The HF Tool™ has been developed with the aim of promoting safety, but it is also suitable for developing work and an organization’s operations.
