Accident – Aviation Human Factors

Accident: An accident is often caused by a variety of contributing factors that interfere with good judgment and may cause inadvertent errors (events).. This permits a series of events to develop eventually resulting in damage to people or property. In every accident there are a series of events (errors) that link together to form a chain. This is a chain of events that if anyone of the events (errors) in the chain were eliminated the accident would have not occurred or would been replaced by a less severe incident.

Related: “Link Buster”: Any mechanism or filter that is put in place that can help break the chain of events
