Safety management systems (SMS) and human factors (HF) disciplines are often regarded as subjective and nebulous. This perhaps stems from a variety and sometimes disjointed activities in the realms of education, industry and the research practices. Aviation is one of the safety-critical industries that have led the development of safety systems and human factors. However, in recent years, SMS and HF is seen to be progressing well in the road, rail and even the medical arena. Multimodal Safety Management and Human Factors is a wide-ranging compendium of contemporary SMS and HF approaches from the aviation, road, rail and medical domains. It brings together 27 chapters from both the academic and professional worlds that focus on applications, tools and strategies in SMS and HF; a wellspring of the practical rather than the theoretical. Safety scientists, human factor industry practitioners, change management advocates, educators and students of SMS and HF will find this book extremely relevant and challenging.
