How do you use scenarios to assess risk and account for the unpredictable when it comes to people?
Exponent's scientists and engineers advise clients on hazards related to everything from consumer products, to medical devices, to industrial equipment, to vehicles. Risk assessments that incorporate human factors are designed to identify sources of risk, include evaluations that support findings, and ultimately provide recommendations for control or mitigation.
Integrating user experience (UX), bio-signal data, human body scanning, and morphometry evaluations provides unique insights for estimating risk, as well as effective strategies to minimize adverse incidents that have human root causes.
For 50+ years, we’ve thrived on solving unstructured problems that require bespoke solutions. Some of our services include:
• Identifying risks related to human capabilities and limitations
• Conducting quantitative, semi-quantitative, and qualitative risk assessments
• Performing consequence analyses
• Advising on how to reduce risks to as-low-as-reasonably practicable (ALARP) levels
