What does Human Factors mean?
I have found in life, and even at Insitu, that describing myself as a “Human Factors practitioner” actually offers little clarification. The definition of “Human Factors” can be region-, industry-, and even company-specific.
In short, it can be boiled down to the following: Human Factors is a discipline that applies an understanding of human abilities and limitations to the design of the built environment.
The longer definition of Human Factors (based off the FAA’s definition) is the scientific discipline that utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to generate and compile information about human capabilities and limitations and apply that information to equipment, systems, facilities, procedures, jobs, environments, training, staffing, and personnel management for safe, comfortable and effective human performance.
