United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

T7 Human Impacts

This  session will discuss the impacts of human performance and why it is important—because humans can have the greatest impact on engineered systems.  The emphasis on the impact of human performance has waned since the Three Mile Island accident; however, the recent events at Fukushima Dai-ichi indicate that human performance still has a significant effect on the outcome of events.  This session will explore the multiple facets of human performance and how human performance affects outcomes.
