Abstract:

Human risk factors are conditions or behaviors arising from our natural qualities as humans that put us at risk for certain adverse outcomes. Understanding human risk factors can assist in reducing organizational costs associated with incidents, accidents, and missed deadlines. The more we understand how humans behave in an environment within the context of the culture to which they belong, the more we can be proactive in our overall safety strategies. Addressing human risk factors requires the application of multiple fields of learning, including psychology, engineering, statistics, and anthropometry (the study of measurements and proportions of the human body).
