As part of a new initiative for the Centre for Human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems to share our work to a wider audience, we are recording presentations our researchers and PhD students have given at key international and domestic conferences.
Human Factors and Emerging Risks Symposium 2021. Presented by the team at Centre for Human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems, Professor Neville Stanton and Dr Clare Dallat. May 2021
Our world is changing, and as a result, society faces several emergent personal, organisational, societal and global risks which threaten our health and wellbeing. Human Factors has a critical role to play in understanding and managing these risks. Our 2021 Human Factors symposium entitled ‘Human Factors and Emerging Risks’ includes a series of presentations from leading researchers and practitioners covering their work applying state-of-the-art Human Factors theory and methods in response to these emerging risks. Topics covered include the management of global risks (e.g. COVID-19) and natural hazards, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, control room design, accident reporting and analysis, and the development and validation of risk management methods.
Beyond the tip of the iceberg: Using systems archetypes to understand common and recurring issues in sports coaching’.
Presented by Dr Scott McLean at the 9th World Congress on Science and Football, Melbourne, 4-7 June 2019.
Systems thinking, a fundamental approach for understanding complexity is beginning to gain traction in sport science. Systems archetypes (SAs) describe common recurring patterns of system behaviours and have been used extensively in other domains to explain the systemic influences on behaviour. SAs look at the deeper levels of systemic structure by identifying what creates system behaviours, which supports the development of interventions to identify and resolve problem sources.
