September – December 2014
This 2 day course is for health professionals and physiotherapists to gain an understanding of how to perform a basic ergonomic assessment in the workplace.
Organised by the Institution of Civil Engineers.
This one day event focuses on improving welfare, standards and practice across the construction industry. It will highlight examples of best practice and will explore imminent updates to legislation, and concentrate on embedding world class safety across the lifecycle of a project.
Its speakers include Professor Dame Carol Black and Lawrence Waterman.
This is the largest conference for system safety specialists held in the UK; and the only conference where both safety and security engineers from around the world can meet and share ideas, new research and network. It will feature over 40 peer-reviewed papers on topics including human factors, complex programmable electronic devices, intelligence led threat assessment and security of intelligent buildings to name but a few.
Learn how to improve the health, safety and productivity of your workforce by making simple ergonomic improvements in the industrial environment in this Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors accredited two day course.
You don’t have to work in the oil, gas or chemical industries to benefit from this event as talks will encourage the transfer of knowledge from other high-hazard or safety critical industries, such as nuclear, rail, defence, aviation, shipping, or healthcare.
* Safety critical tasks and human error in major accident hazards
* Simulator training for the oil & gas industry
* Links from safety leadership to business performance
* Improving human performance through the practical application of task analysis

This is the second event organised by the Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors Healthcare Special Interest Group and it will include interactive workshops led by experienced human factors professionals. Several workshops will be especially tailored to the needs of clinicians and managers who want to learn more about human factors, understand how to build human factors into their organisations and learn the latest thinking in quality improvement based on resilience engineering. The provisional programme is now available and more details will be added soon. Listen to two influential keynote speakers and a series of presentations on recent research undertaken to address quality and safety problems in healthcare. There will also be posters to view and discuss and plenty of opportunity for networking.
The theme of this year’s conference focuses on how simulation and new learning technologies can be used to enhance individual, team and organisational learning and improvement in relation to the integration of human factors within health and social care.
This is the IEHF’s annual Ergonomics Careers Day. The aim of the event is to provide students and newly qualified graduates with an understanding of the careers available in ergonomics and human factors.
