The symposium’s theme; Bridging the Gap Between Human Factors/Ergonomics Theory and Practice succinctly captures the essence of the three-day-event which will feature a keynote addresses from:

The ASFHAS 2019 and ESSA 2019 two-in-one industry symposium is aimed at academics, students, government representatives, and industry professionals from the Ergonomics and Human Factors (E/HF), aviation safety and transport domains.

The event also encourages participation from other safety domains such as the maritime, mining, and healthcare industries.   Additionally, the ASHFAS 2019 and ESSA 2019 symposium extends beyond the country’s borders and aims to attract participation from the rest of the African continent and other global peers. 

“The ASHFAS 2019 and ESSA 2019 symposium is a not-to-be-missed event; we encourage all relevant industries to attend what is arguably the leading platform for discussions on human factor and ergonomics and its impact on multiple industries across the continent,” said ATNS Interim CEO, Thomas Kgokolo.
