ErgoS is a member of Human Factors in Control, abbreviated HFC Forum, an international network for people working with human factors. The HFC arranges every year two conferences – in May and October – often including well known keynote speakers. On average there are 60 participants from Scandinavia and the Netherlands. The theme of the May conference was ”Organizational safety and safety culture – current challenges and future directions“. BW Fleetmanagement, a large shipping company, hosted the conference. In Scandinavia, a lot of HF interest focusses on safety related to critical processes or circumstances. Compared to previous conferences, a clear shift of interest from the oil & gas industry, towards shipping could be noticed.
