Undetected human error in aircraft maintenance creates a latent error condition that can contribute to undesirable outcomes. Individual Latent Error Detection (I-LED) acts as an additional system safety control that helps an engineer recall past errors through environmental cues. This book addresses a gap in the human factors research and current safety strategies by exploring the nature and extent of I-LED and its benefit to safety resilience. The book will describe the I-LED concept using a systems perspective and propose practical interventions to be integrated within existing safety systems as an additional control to enhance resilience against human performance variability.
1. Introduction. 2. Application of Multi-Process Theory to I-LED Research. 3. Rationalising Systems Thinking with the Term ‘Human Error’ for Progressive Safety Research. 4.

I-LED Interventions: Visual, Verbal and a Stop, Look and Listen Approach. 8. Organisational Resilience through a Total Safety Management Approach to System Safety. 9. Assessing the Benefits of I-LED Interventions. 10. Future Work and Wider Applications of I-LED.
This series will bring the very latest theoretical and practical research on transportation together, to guide concepts, design, development, and evaluation of current and future transportation vehicles and systems across the domains of Aviation, Maritime, Rail, and Road. This series will attract the best academics and practitioners in the field of Human Factors Engineering so that they can communicate their contemporary work to a large audience worldwide. Emphasis will be given to providing examples and case studies through the use of Human Factors methods.
