Human Factors training can assist organisations involved in the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and natural gas to reduce accidents and incidents throughout the field work force. Human Factors training differs from traditional safety training in that the focus is less with the technical knowledge and skills required to perform specific operations, but rather with the cognitive and interpersonal skills needed to effectively manage a team-based, high-risk activity.

GAT HF training delivers a set of safety skills that include teamwork, situation awareness, decision making, communication and workload management. HF training recognises that human error is inevitable and that the team is the greatest asset to achieving safety and high reliability in complex and hazardous work environments. It considers the human causes of error and delivers a proactive approach to avoid, trap and mitigate errors
