Welcome to Human Factors in Control


HFC - Human Factors in Control is a professional network for people working with human factors (HF - Human Factors), see our leaflet. HF areas are organizational factors, cognitive factors, and physical ergonomics.

We arrange two conferences every year and work on developing standards for HF. We also arrange yearly courses within human factors together with course connectivity with other institutions. Examples of Human factors, in selective attention test.
