About

Hello!

I am a human factors specialist and work psychologist with a background in practice and research in safety-critical industries. My main interest is human and system behaviour in the context of safety-related organisations. I seek to enable safety improvement via a combination of systems thinking, design thinking and humanistic thinking.

I am a registered member of the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (IEHF), a member of the Association for Humanistic Psychology in Britain, and a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.

I currently work as a human factors and safety specialist in air traffic control, where I work all over Europe. I am also Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Sunshine Coast, Australia.

I blog in a personal capacity. Views expressed here are mine and not those of any affiliated organisation, unless stated otherwise.

    I think that should read, “I am a human factors specialist and work psychologist with a background in practice and research in safety-critical industries. My main interest is… hhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhh!”

    (Probably not the most edifying message to leave on a global blog, but you only live once (unless you are reborn / reincarnated))

    Dear Steven,
    I am in the preliminary stages of planning the inaugural Exeter Patient Safety conference (2016). The conference will be based around four key areas and look to bring people from within and without healthcare to share their expertise and insights. The themes are;
    Culture, safety culture and changing culture.
    High performing teams – how to create them and behaviours in high performing teams
    Briefing and debriefing
    Human factors, simulation and Quality improvement for patient safety.

    I wondered if you would be interested in talking at this conference and if so what the terms and conditions would be above and beyond travel and accomodation costs. I believe it would be fascinating to hear your insights into human factors in healthcare.

    Your sincerely,
    Alistair Hellewell
