Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Enhancement Courses

Human Factors (also known as ergonomics) is concerned with how people interact with their equipment and systems at work, how they fit into their workspace and how their environment affects them. It is the study of the capabilities and limitations of people and the application of this knowledge to the design of systems, products and work environments to ensure that people are safe and healthy at work and are also able to perform efficiently. 

The courses listed here are part of the Bachelor in Human Factors in Safety undergraduate degree programme and cover key knowledge and skills in both disciplines of Human Factors and Workplace Health and Safety.  

These courses will expand your perspective on dealing with WSH issues by focusing on the human aspects. Human factors is about having a HOLISTIC view about people at work. It's about knowing the social and psychological aspects of work as well as technological and environmental implications. Human factors is about identifying the causes of a problem, which goes beyond merely finding a solution. Understanding Human Factors is an important first step in achieving a Total Workplace Safety Culture.
