Human Factors and Ergonomics Society

...and now for another Human Factors Minute!

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society is an international, multidisciplinary, nonprofit organization of close to 5,000 members involved in the human factors field.

As the largest organization of human factors professionals in the world, HFES members are concerned with the safety, usability, and maintainability of systems and products that involve the human as an operator or maintainer.

Since its formation in 1957, the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society has promoted the discovery and exchange of human factors knowledge, as well as the education and training of students and practitioners.

HFES envisions a future in which the reach, relevance, and quality of human factors and ergonomics are greatly expanded by enriching the science and enhancing its impact on solving societal problems by embracing outward-facing collaborations.

Profile picture for Nick Roome

Nick Roome

Nick is currently a Senior UX Researcher at Turvo in the Pacific Northwest, focused on developing innovative solutions and optimizing human performance for SaaS based supply chain logistics programs. Alongside colleague and friends, Blake Arnsdorff and Barry Kirby, Nick hosts and produces Human Factors Cast, a weekly podcast that investigates the sciences of human factors, psychology, engineering, biomechanics, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry and how it affects our interaction with technology. Nick’s other areas of interest include, but are not limited to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, systems engineering, and artificially intelligent systems.

Nick Started Human Factors Cast in early 2016 as a side-project. He believed that the way Human Factors concepts were being communicated is broken and saw a way to fix it. After getting initial traction, Nick moved to work on the Human Factors Cast Digital Media Lab and began assembling a multi-disciplinary team to test out new concepts in Human Factors communication.
