HUMAN FACTORS

knowing and understanding human factors plays an important role in operational safety

JIG's work on Human Factors provides free resources to Members for use in their own safety programmes.

HUMAN FACTORS influence us at work every day and can negatively impact performance without us knowing it.

The original concept of Human Factors and the “Dirty Dozen” was developed by Gordon Dupont while working for Transport Canada 25 years ago. The basis of his work was to define external and cultural factors that could negatively affect performance at work. In doing to so was able to explain why certain activities that were engieered for safety and had very robust operating procedures still generated accidents.  Dupont went on to work for the Federal Aviation Authority, developing materials and training around aviation-related procedures.

JIG is therefore taking these concepts and is developing some Human Factor specific Posters, Videos and LFOs. These materials and associated toolbox talks can be used by operators as part of their safety and training activities. For more information on the materials, see below.
