Aviation

Aviation is a highly internationally regulated sector. Yet there are plenty of challenges in the human factors field at national implementation of these regulations. Intergo is particularly active in Air Traffic Control, with emphasis on workplace design, workload and (avoiding) human error. Also we have experience in maintenance.
