The Keil Centre’s book on Human Factors

Some description

In 2016 The Keil Centre launched a book on how to incorporate human factors considerations within the design and operation of chemical and processing plants.  The book was published by Elsevier in association with the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).  While the focus is on chemical and processing plants, this book is a useful resource for any organisation operating within a safety critical industry.

Human Factors in the Chemical and Process Industries:

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of the key relevant human factors within this sector with succinct overviews of each topic;
  • Uses case studies and practical examples to illustrate topics and explains the material in a fully accessible, easy to understand style;
  • Is written by eleven of the industry practitioners at the Keil Centre, drawing on the combined expertise of different human factors specialisms.

The book is designed to be a standalone reference book for those interested in learning more about Human Factors, or can be used as a companion to the IChemE ‘Human Factors in Health and Safety’ professional development course, which runs regularly in both Australia and the UK.
