Meet our winners

Human factors heroes from around the world were recognised at our annual awards ceremony last month. The prizes celebrate the people and projects making a positive difference to lives. This year’s awards highlighted safety in scuba diving, advice on anaesthesia and protection for packaging workers.

The winners included New Ergonomist of the Year, Payam Khanlari, who is building a growing reputation for spreading awareness of the benefits of human factors in the Middle East. Fiona Cayzer was named Volunteer of the Year for her huge amount of dedication to the CIEHF and her work advancing our professional standards.

And the Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Professor Peter Hancock, Provost Distinguished Research Professor and Pegasus Professor at the University of Central Florida, USA. His prolific output of papers and books covers many areas of human factors, focusing on both practical and philosophical aspects of human interaction with technology.

If your human factors hero missed out on an award this year, make sure you’re ready when nominations open for the 2024 awards. Keep an eye on our website for the latest news and details about how to submit an entry.
