Human Factors


We apply our human factors expertise to our clients' critical systems and processes, enabling them to improve safety, efficiency and reduce costs. Through integrating the human in system design and influencing user behaviour, organisations can optimise the performance of their systems and the well-being of their people.

Improving performance and human well-being

Frazer-Nash takes a systems approach to human factors. We apply our knowledge of physical ergonomics, cognitive psychology, human behaviour and engineering to evaluate systems, individuals, teams, equipment and organisations. To improve the performance and well-being of individuals you need to understand their interactions with equipment and their role in the wider system and organisation, allowing you to identify the barriers and enablers to success.

Our approach prioritises the human element, to complement the wider technical approach or system. We are able to identify and mitigate a range of human related issues - helping our clients to avoid costly rework or redesign, supporting behavioural change, and improving human-system interactions.
