Welcome to the CAA Human Factors portal

An all-new portal for 2011 providing relevant and useful information and resources for the aviation Human Factors (HF) community!

Regulatory oversight needs to incorporate a proactive, authoritative and coherent approach to HF in partnership with the UK aviation industry. This is brought into sharper focus when considering the opportunities that exist to influence International and European rulemaking bodies and guidance material, in a manner that seeks to preserve, and where possible improve, the aviation safety system.

Latest from the Human Factors Review!

Safety Regulation Group Director endorses the Phase One Report on 8 February 2011.

The publication of this welcome report signals the completion of 4 month's work listening to what UK Civil Aviation has to say about Human Factors (HF).  It is a faithful representation of the feedback received and is expressed simply and logically - I hope that you will find it interesting reading and I would encourage you to take just a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the main points.  If you would like to comment on the Report, or any other aspect of the Review, please contact the Review Team. 

A better understanding and application of HF principles is central to the regulatory approach being developed under the Strategic Review of Safety Regulation (SR2), and which is specifically referred to in the Draft CAA Strategic Plan 2011-2016 (now on available for public consultation). 

A Personal Invitation

Your view on any aspect of HF is important to us and it would be warmly received at any time - please just pick up the phone or drop me an email!

I look forward to hearing from you.
