Call for Development Group Members – Human Factors Integration (HFI) Into the Project Lifecycle

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a RISSB Development Group to draft a Guideline for HFI into the project lifecycle.

Overview
The objective of the Guideline is to improve the implementation and effectiveness of HFI into projects. This Guideline will provide guidance on human factors integration across a typical project lifecycle, mapping HF activities on the project and system safety assurance lifecycle (from concept through to transition into service) to show what activities typically occur at different project stages.

How to contribute
Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join this Development Group to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the Guideline.

DG membership is voluntary and requires the support of your employer organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 4 meetings over the development period, 2 face-to-face (expected in October and January) and 2 teleconference (February/March).  Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted to pallan@rissb.com.au

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief detailing your contact details, your interest in this development (materially affected party, subject matter expert, etc.), and any other information which might support your participation.

Your information will assist us in ensuring a balanced representation from all major interest categories in the development of this document.

Closing date for nominations Tuesday, 31 July 2018.
