    Join us for a discussion on Human Factors research in industry and government.

    Join us on Tuesday, June 28 to hear two experts discuss various applications of human factors/ergonomics. Dr. Lee will talk about her experience as a quantitative user experience researcher at Google.  Learn  what UX researchers do at Google, what “Quant” UX researchers do, and where to find resources and opportunities.  Dr. Bao will discuss his journey in developing a workload calculator, which includes a large commercial janitorial workload project mandated by the Washington State Legislature.  Hear about study design, field data collection, processing and challenges along the way of creating the project.

    Join us for a discussion on HFE considerations for high renewable energy grids

    The continued use of fossil fuels for electricity generation is unsustainable, not only because they are a finite resource but particularly because of their contribution to the greenhouse effect and climate change. After frequent calls for energy companies to move towards renewable energy sources, this transition is now decisively under way in many jurisdictions. While renewable energy sources such as wind and solar significantly reduce carbon emissions, they challenge the reliable operation of energy systems. Renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, generate intermittently and vary with weather and region (i.e., cloud cover, calm winds). Some combination of significant energy storage capacity, longer-distance electric transmission, and/or more flexible energy demand will be required to provide a consistent, controllable, quality energy supply. Grid operation is already becoming more complex and requiring faster operating procedures which are more difficult to control by humans and automation. In this webinar, we will explore the challenges that this presents for HFE, including:

    • Increased power grid operator cognitive load
    • Greater coordination requirements between field and control center(s)
    • New paradigms of grid control automation interaction
    • Decision-making for investment in energy storage and distribution points
    • Practical, ethical, and emotional human factors in making demand flexible

    Join us for a discussion of the new standard, how it can be implemented, and how to sell your leadership on the need for it.

    In the second installment of the “So What” Webinar Series, we will be talking with folks about the new(ish) Human Readiness Level Scale (HRL) standard (ANSI/HFES 400-2021). 

    Standards are a fundamental way of communicating science to practice so what better topic for the “So What” Webinar!! In this webinar—practitioners will have a chance to gain insights from those who developed the standard as well as ask questions regarding its implementation and use. Academics can learn more about HRL so they can teach it to future practitioners. 

    The standard is available free of charge at https://www.hfes.org/Publications/Technical-Standards. Attendees may benefit from reviewing the special October 2021 issue of Ergonomics in Design on the standard as well.

    Climate Change is probably the most significant challenge we, as a species, face today and given that it is widely agreed that Humans are accelerating climate change, then it makes sense that Humans are in a prime position to do something about it. Human Factors and Ergonomics are often seen as the “glue” that can hold many projects together to deliver successful outcomes, and Barry Kirby is leading a drive to apply HF/E principles to empower organizations, government and individuals to be able to take practical and real steps to make a difference. This talk will highlight the rationale behind the work, the application of behavior change principles, what has been done so far and what is being planned in the future. Most importantly, it provides handrails that people can use to make their own changes, to take their first steps.
