GEGN8613 Iss 1

Application of human factors within safety management systems

Synopsis

This document provides guidance on the application of human factors principles for railway organisations. It has been developed to support organisations to integrate human factors within their safety management processes. Implementation of this guidance will support organisations in meeting elements of the Office of Rail and Road’s (ORR) Risk Management Maturity Model (RM3) criteria relevant to human factors for health and safety risk management systems.

Summary Of Changes

The guidance in RS232 is now over 10 years old and does not include key human factors research areas for managing risk factors such as the ‘10 Incident Factor’ classification’ system. The content has been updated in partnership with industry to reflect this development, and the development of our understanding of human performance through the research programme and experience over the past 10 years.

When organisations can demonstrate that the guidance in GEGN8613 has been adopted, it will support them in developing robust safety management systems that address human performance considerations. Benefits include industry agreed good practice on human factors, improved identification and implementation of health and safety controls and; a reduction in operating costs through implementation.
