"I joined the CIEHF because I think it’s a good way to keep up with the latest research and developments in my area of expertise while also providing a platform to network with other professionals working in the sector. Keeping up to date with human factors research in a breadth of different fields of application is a good way of exploring innovative solutions to some of the problems we may face. For me the key benefits are access to journals, professional recognition through membership/chartership status and access to conferences and events with related with human factors. I think if as a member you are able to dedicate time to proactively get involved in different activities and use the resources made available then it’s value for money."
