Ring in the New Year with NASAHFACS Training

1-minute read

The Human Factors Task Force (HFTF) is hosting a virtual NASA Human Factors Analysis and Classifications System (NASAHFACS) training and certification course, available to NASA personnel interested in learning about the impact of Human Factors across the agency. The three-day certification course will be Jan. 19-21, 2021, via Microsoft Teams.

“We’ve developed this training to help build awareness of Human Factors and prevent occurrences of human error throughout the agency,” said Tracy Dillinger, Human Factors technical manager.

During the three-day certification, participants will learn the concepts and information necessary to perform Human Factors analyses. The course will teach lessons on how to code Human Factors and mishaps, contribute to the agency database, and use NASAHFACS proactively in programs.

The Human Factors Program supports all NASA missions and strategic efforts within the agency. Each year, the HFTF develops an annual report for the agency and provides Human Factors support to Mishap Investigation Boards. The team applies NASAHFACS to Type A, B, C and High-Visibility mishaps, as well as High-Visibility close calls.

Register for the course in SATERN under “NASAFHACS Training and Certification” or “SMA-SAFE-OSMA-4009.” If you have questions, contact Tiffaney Alexander or Tracy Dillinger. For more information, visit the Human Factors web page.
