Integrated Human Factors, one of the UK’s leading specialist Human Factors consultancies is expanding its offering in the Australia and the wider Asia Pacific region and establishing an office in Perth, Western Australia.

IHF, a tech-driven human factors consultancy was founded a decade ago in the UK by Neil Clark and is a registered member of the UK Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF). The IHF client base includes many large enterprises in the aviation, defence, financial services, healthcare, oil and gas, transportation, and utilities industries.

Leading the expansion in Australia will be David Clarke, Director, and Managing Partner of IHF Asia Pacific. David has worked across Airlines, Human Capital and Human Factors in both Australia and the UK over the last 25 years in both front-line and management positions

David said;

Expanding in Australia and Asia Pacific is the natural next step for the IHF Group. With so many hazardous and process focussed industries based in Australia, not to mention the explosion in transport-related infrastructure projects across the Asia Pacific region it made sense to expand our operations here.

“The global shortage of competent and experienced Human Factors specialists has made it almost impossible for businesses to adequately address their organisational Human Factors – and not to mention regulatory – obligations. Therefore, businesses are having to adapt by developing their in-house capability to manage their human factors requirements. To do this, they need a robust suite of easy-to-use software tools to manage their human-risk management backed up by top-level expertise. That’s where we can help”

Neil Clark, CEO, IHF said:

I have known David for many years, and his expertise and can-do attitude makes him the perfect person to lead the growth of IHF in Australia and the Asia Pacific Region. As we expand David can tap into the wider IHF Team who have cross-industry human factors expertise in aviation, psychology, engineering, ergonomics, and safety. This is what makes IHF’s capabilities extensive, creative, flexible, and global.
