Human Factors subject is included into the initial ATCO training because it is assumed that a better understanding of the human performance and of its limits (such as making errors) contributes to the improvement of this performance. The subject includes measures of prevention and protection and proposes a proactive and systematic approach to safety. SAFER uses incident or accident reports to describe errors in the context of Air Traffic. It introduces various theoretical approaches, classifies error types and uses both everyday and ATC examples.
