The conference is the leading forum to bring together those in the industry who need to apply the expertise, methods, tools and knowledge of rail ergonomics/human factors.

The conference will focus on:

- Safety culture
However topics on all aspects of Rail Human Factors are welcome.
The conference is jointly organised by RSSB, Network Rail and the University of Nottingham, and in association with the European Union Agency for Railway (ERA), the International Union of Railways (UIC) and the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF).
The Rail Human Factors conference will be hosted over four days. The first three days will cover the main conference programme and the final day will consist of technical visits to see the operational railway in action.
There is also an opportunity to catch up with old colleagues, network and relax at the social events of the conference including a drinks reception on the first evening and a dinner on the second evening.
