It is a statistically validated fact that a vast majority of major accidents have some level of “human error” as part of their root cause.

The overall aim of analysing "human factors" is to minimise the likelihood of accidents and improve safety in the workplace.

Often, there is this misconception that it is just about human behaviour.

While human behaviour is certainly part of the remit, human factors is mainly about engineering (or re-engineering) the tasks, work equipment and work environment in order to get the best out of the people who are carrying out the tasks.

If you want to discuss how a focus on human factors could benefit your project or operations, get in touch with Varun (see below) or with the Marex team at
