The discipline of Human Factors is a marriage of the principles, utilized in engineering and psychology acknowledging the premise that things do not exist in a vacuum in which they are invented by, used by, and often times surrounded by people.

This behavioral approach reveals not only violations, but provides insights into the problem including procedures, equipment, training and education, and culture.
