Human Factors is a critical, yet sometimes poorly understood component of complex socio-technical systems, such as aviation. While safety critical personnel have been exposed to Human Factors training in aviation for some years, that is generally not the case for most managers, especially those outside the aviation domain. Most industries, and especially those which are considered high risk, involve complex interactions between the people, the equipment, the procedures, and the environment they operate in, and these interactions are critical in managing safety, efficiency and in some cases business continuance. Many studies attribute up to 80% of critical incidents to human error and understanding how people interact in these complex environments, managing performance and providing effective leadership under challenging conditions is not just desirable – it is essential.
