More and more advanced technologies have been introduced to modern societies and the complex and large socio-technical systems are commons now. Since human errors may lead to adverse consequences or even catastrophes when the human is a crucial part of these systems, human factors engineering and human reliability analysis have become very important in China. This presentation summarize the recent applications of human factors engineering human reliability analysis in healthcare and energy infrastructure industries and demonstrates how human factors engineering human reliability analysis benefit these safety-critical industries.
