Answering the "So What" Webinar Series

Answer the “So What” Question: The Human Readiness Level Scale Standard (ANSI/HFES 400-2021)

In the second installment of the "So What" Webinar Series, we will be talking with folks about the new(ish) Human Readiness Level Scale (HRL) standard (ANSI/HFES 400-2021). 

Standards are a fundamental way of communicating science to practice so what better topic for the "So What" Webinar!

In this webinar, practitioners will have a chance to gain insight from those who developed the standard as well as ask questions regarding its implementation and use. Academics can learn more about HRL so they can teach it to future practitioners. 

The standard is available free of charge at https://www.hfes.org/Publications/Technical-Standards. Attendees may benefit from reviewing the special October 2021 issue of Ergonomics in Design on the standard as well.
