29 Aug 2018


NSPCC National Training Centre

Unfortunately the SIG for the 18th July 2018 has had to be cancelled due unexpected issues for the speaker.
We will therefore postpone the Network Rail talk to later in the year and I will be in touch.

In the interim we are planning an August session considering the use of the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System.

Please see below, this is a free session and I hope will be informative (and a free hot lunch)

Best wishes


The Health Foundation and Patient Safety Collaborative have kindly provided funding to support a Q Fellow Human Factors in Patient Safety “Specialist Interest Group” (SIG) in the region.

The next SIG is as follows, please book on via the link below:

SIG objectives:
• Create collaboration between like-minded staff with interests in safety Science, improvement and Human Factors/ Ergonomics.
• Share learning from local improvement work related to safety.
• Deliver education sessions to improve knowledge around Safety Science and Human Factors tools (with expert speakers).
• To potentially develop collaborative improvement projects across the region.

How they will work:

I hope this appeals and provide an opportunity for some stimulating learning and sharing of Human Factors in Patient Safety work.
