Safety and the Human Factor, by understanding and allowing for the Human condition we are then able to design our workplaces to be more tolerant of the mistakes, errors and lapses that make us Human.

If we design our safety systems based only on the concept of the ideal worker we will continue to struggle to achieve our desired safety performance.
