Aim of conference
The Fifth International Rail Human Factors Conference was held in London between 14 and 17 September 2015. The conference was the only event worldwide which focuses solely on Rail Human Factors.
The conference is the leading forum to bring together those in the industry who need to apply the expertise, methods, tools and knowledge of rail ergonomics/human factors. The aim of this conference was to provide an opportunity to bring together scientists, consultants, regulators, operators, infrastructure managers, manufacturers and suppliers to share Rail Human Factors knowledge. The conference focussed on:
- The discussion of topical issues such as in-cab signalling
- Traffic management
- Non-technical skills
- The platform-train interface and safety culture
However topics on all aspects of rail human factors were welcome.
The conference was jointly organised by RSSB, Network Rail and the University of Nottingham, and in association with the European Railway Agency (ERA), the International Union of Railways (UIC) and the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (IEHF).
