Sept. 20, 2023 12:00-1:00 PM EDT Crisis Management and Human Factors – How HF can support Crisis Management


Have you wondered what is the impact a disaster has on how humans process information? What factors influence human behaviors when managing operational decision-making in emergency situations and what helps people manage stress and fatigue in crisis situations? As an emergency management practitioner, have you struggled with understanding how you can improve and maintain good human performance, amidst the uncertainties of the disaster situation or even during your preparedness and mitigation activities?

Discuss with and learn in a lively and interactive session from Human Factors expert Dr. Nicklas Dahlstrom about the link between Human Factors and Crisis Management and how to apply Human Factors knowledge in emergency management.
