Who We Are

The AFS Program:

AFS’s courses will focus upon bringing the understanding of human factors and the human factor elements to the work force through a combination of dynamic and interactive learning modules.  Learning will be enhanced for the applicants through the formation of perceptions leading to insights that will foster safe practices in the environment.

The program will offer initial overview training for employees, known as Understanding Human Factors, involving the human factor methodology including its history and an introduction to the elements that it encompasses such as teambuilding, communication, decision making, situational awareness, workload management and “threat and error” management.

Understanding Human Factors   

Module I  -  Understanding Human Factors – “Introduction, Communication, Team Building, Decision Making”    

Module II  -  Understanding Human Factors – “Situational Awareness, Workload Management, Error Management”   

Course Intent:                 

The course is oriented to deliver a “hands on” approach to increased awareness of the concepts of Human Factors and actions involving safe operations. Human Factors is based around the accepted “Elements” of Human Factors. These are recognized and promoted throughout corporations in various training courses and concepts.  This commonality encompasses: Team Building, Communication, Situational Awareness, Decision Making, Workload Management, and Error Management. 

Our approach will be how to mitigate threats and potential errors that will result in a safety oriented work force and environment. The Human Factors course provides insight how employees can become critically aware of how their environment and people they work and interact with affect their lives.


Recommended yearly recurrent training can be provided to build upon the learning concepts from the initial class though the involvement of interactive case studies, taking the training to a deeper level of understanding.
