Biomechanics & Safety

Human Factors

Human factors is a broad term that covers a lot of topics, but at the core of all of them is the study of how humans behave, both physically and mentally, within their work environment and with the tools they use to do their everyday work.

Our human factors team is made up of professionals with experience in conducting human factors and ergonomics assessments in all kinds of contexts, including everything from pre-emptive employee safety projects to investigations into product and premises liability after an accident has occurred. We work with government agencies, industry organizations, large legal firms, and all kinds of businesses.
