Abstract:
Aims to apply contemporary error theory to the needs of investigators and of anyone attempting to understand why someone made a critical error, how that error led to an incident or accident, and how to prevent such errors in the future. Includes a step-by-step approach to conducting error investigations, summarises recent transportation accidents and human factors literature and related them to the cause of human error in accidents, and provides an approach to investigating human error that aims to be of interest to both human factors psychology and industrial engineering students and instructors - as well as investigators of accidents in aviation, mass transportation, nuclear power, or any industry that is prone to the adverse effects of error.
