WDP-WS4 - HFE Awareness in NZ Industry Questionnaire

Want to help shape the future of Human Factors/Ergonomics (HFE) in NZ? 

We are reaching out to industry members to give them a voice on how HFE can best support them.  

This questionnaire is part of a larger project funded by WorkSafe and Health and Safety Association of NZ (HASANZ) through the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of New Zealand (HFESNZ). Its aim is to further develop the capacity of the Human Factors/Ergonomics profession in New Zealand, to support the improvement of safety, performance and well-being in New Zealand.

To do this, we are initially launching a questionnaire survey across a broad range of NZ industries to identify where the gaps and needs in HFE are. Below is a link to the questionnaire that you can complete. This will help us understand where HFE is currently being undertaken, and what is understood by HFE, which will guide the development of HFE resources. 

We expect there will be differences across industries in terms of their understanding of what HFE encompasses. Some industries may simply want a better understanding of what HFE is or have specific issues of concern. Regardless, there are no right or wrong answers. 

The benefits for respondents:

  • An opportunity to be sent a summary of the findings of the questionnaire
    Learning about HFE
  • Influencing the use of HFE in NZ industry
  • It would be great if you could spend 10 mins to complete the survey and we would really appreciate it if you could send it on to your colleagues - help us so we can better help NZ industry! If you would like more information, please contact Rachael Gordon via the HFESNZ admin@hfesnz.org.nz
