Abstract
Personnel Cause Factors have increased steadily in proportion to other cause factors assigned to Canadian Forces Aviation Accidents. They have risen over the four years 1969 to 1973 from 69% to 84%. One of the reasons for this trend is the success of the present programme in reducing the hazards associated with the environment and material. The trend shows, however, that our efforts must be focused on the underlying causes of personnel failure, if we are to effect a further reduction of the accident rate. The major responsibility of the medical member of a Board of Inquiry is therefore to investigate all possible Human Factors which may be implicated in the occurrence for discussion and identification by the Board. The manual has been compiled to assist the medical member in his investigation.
