AN OUTSTANDING REPUTATION

We’re here to help you and your staff
to increase efficiency and productivity

The Centre for Human Factors was formed in July 2019, replacing the Risk Institute at the University of Hull. Having undertaken projects in oil and gas, defence, public sector and OECD under the leadership of Terry Williams, the Centre was formed by Dr Fiona Earle with the main business aim of providing high-quality human factors and occupational psychology consultancy and applied research, underpinned by the rigour and ethics of an academic institution. Building on the experience and contacts developed under the Risk Institute, the team have established a reputable service portfolio of evidence-based approaches to health, safety and wellbeing in the workplace. Our team has partnered with the UK Health & Safety Executive to collaborate and deliver on research and consultancy that aims to address a range of issues of importance in the workplace, including fatigue, stress and trauma and to develop existing occupational stress risk assessment tools and approaches.
