Human Factors (HF) In Diving

Why this online course is recommended as pre-learning for my classes:

This course emphasizes how important “human factors” are when diving which is why I recommend the micro-class as pre-learning for my classes.

Most accidents are not down to failures of equipment or ‘technical skills’ rather they are down to misdirected situational awareness, poor decision making, incorrect assumptions, miscommunications, ineffective leadership and teamwork. 

The online class provides a grounding for students to understand ‘human error’ in more detail, to recognise the essential skill of learning from failure and crucially the need to be able to talk about incidents as learning opportunities rather than being ashamed or afraid to discuss those ‘safe, scary moments’. Prediction of human error is better than error prevention which is better than error mitigation.
