Course Detail: OHFA - Human Factors Analysis and Classification System - HFACS (Virtual)
The Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS) is recognized as the leader in human factors analysis and classification. The HFACS system has direct application in Accident Investigation and Analysis, Risk Reduction Safety, Quality and Productivity improvement. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has teamed with HFACS, Inc. to provide online specialized human factors training to promote improved human performance and safety.
Human error is associated with 60 to 80% of all accidents, injuries, and quality defects across a variety of industries including aviation, healthcare, mining and manufacturing. Managing human error is therefore fundamental to maintaining the viability and profitability of any organization.
This intensive 2-day online virtual seminar provides training in the application of innovative methods for managing human error that are scientifically derived, empirically tested, and proven in the field. Participants will learn how to turn errors into information, information into knowledge, and knowledge into effective error management solutions.
This course can be completed independently, or toward the Certificate of Management in Aircraft Accident Investigation.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Integrate human factors and system safety concepts into the root cause analysis (RCA) or accident investigation process.
- Utilize the Human Factors Analysis & Classification System (HFACS®) to identify systemic causes of human error during the RCA.
- Develop novel corrective actions for improving safety using the Human Factors Intervention Matrix (HFIX) and FACES tool.
Attendees will receive:
- HFACS-RCA Handbook which includes:
- HFACS Tables, with definitions and exemplars
- HFACS Interviewing Guide
- HFACS/HFIX/FACES Tools and Checklist
- ERAU Certificate of Completion
