The first identifiable work in the area of equipment design and human performance was done during World War II.2 This work was concerned primarily with eliminating certain accidents related to cockpit design and aircrew.

1. Human Factors are involved in most aviation occurrences. Thus, to advance aviation safety, we must improve our ability to identify the involvement of Human Factors in accidents and incidents. By doing so we can learn more from these experiences and implement new and better measures to prevent repetitive occurrences. Human Factors Aspects of Safety Management Systems James Reason Department of Psychology University of Manchester Introduction Human and organisational factors now dominate the risks to aviation, and have done so for at least two decades. It is clear, therefore, that an effective safety .   Human factors are the largest contributor to aircraft accidents. In addition to the human cost of accidents, aircraft maintenance issues/errors impose a significant financial burden on airlines, as they are a major cause of flight delays and cancellations. In this article we’ll explore 5 aviation accidents in recent times where human factors failures were found or thought to have been a major factor.
