Tutorial 1

The Investigation of Human and Organizational Factors in Commercial Aircraft Accidents.

A full-day seminar/tutorial discussing the investigation of human and organizational factors in commercial aircraft accidents.

Practical approaches, tips, tools, and techniques will be presented, with some discussion of case studies. While this Tutorial is developed for aircraft accident investigators with some prior exposure to human factors theories and concepts, everyone is welcome to attend.
