Human Factors /Premises Liability

Accidents happen. People fall, things break and products fail in all kinds of environments on a daily basis. Premises Liability claims involve ascertaining whether the landowner is liable.

Human Factors is the scientific discipline pertaining to the interaction between people and products, equipment, facilities, procedures, and environments used in work and everyday living. It concerns the body of knowledge on human abilities, human limitations, and other human characteristics that are relevant to design, work and everyday living.

 

 

Human Factors engineering also is the application of human factors information to the design of tools, equipment, machines, systems, tasks, jobs, and environments for safe, comfortable, and effective human use.

Human Factors engineers routinely conduct research regarding human psychological, social, physical, and biological characteristics and work to apply that information with respect to the design, operation, or use of products or systems for optimizing human performance, health, safety, and/or habitability.
