The science of human factors is often overlooked, yet it is pivotal in the pursuit of safety. Understanding what makes us tick, our behaviours and how we interact with others, and the ability to visualise potential threats and errors has many advantages. Such as developing better interpersonal and communication skills, which can assist in growing your leadership or team working skills. The ability to see threats and errors can improve safety, reduce costs, and increase productivity.

The Blue Mist is a personal guidebook on human factors; through the author’s experiences and research, the reader can explore and learn the basic human factor concepts. Extensive research in well-known disasters such as the Ladbrook Grove rail disaster, The Costa Concordia Grounding, and the Irish Coast Guard helicopter accident, together with the author’s accounts of incidents and accidents, combine to give an informative and fascinating insight.

The field of human factors developed by the aviation industry is becoming recognised as a critical element in many other sectors. Adopted as a safety element in the shipping, rail, and medical sectors, it has increased safety and reduced accidents. This book assists both novice and experienced human factor advocates and is an excellent tool in exploring the human factor concepts and values.

The Blue Mist is a guidebook on human factors told in a personnel way. Tony Laws takes you on a journey through human factors training which is based on his own experiences and research, that has come from a career in military and civilian aviation industries that spans over thirty years and in many parts of the world.

He has unique aviation experience from a human factor’s perspective, having qualified as an aircraft engineer, a pilot, and a technical crew member. A licensed Crew Resource Management Instructor (CRMI), he is also passionate about training, he has developed the Blue Mist concept for human factors training in all industries and continues to actively teach human factors.

The author lives on a small rural property in Southwest Victoria and enjoys fishing, walking his dogs and photography. He is currently working on his first set of novels, a trilogy based around characters during the Second World War.
