Step Change in Safety’s Human Factors Workgroup launched its publication Human Factors – Taking the first steps. The aim of this publication is to help raise awareness & understanding of human factors in accident causation and to encourage people, at all levels in an organisation, to take some simple steps to help manage human factors.
Says Step Change In Safety: “We have kept the format simple to help demystify what is often perceived as a complex subject”.
The publication presents twelve real case studies covering a range of industry-related activities and identifies some of the key human factors issues that were involved. It asks the reader to think about how this applies to their own work activities and encourages them to take action.
