Studying human and system error has helped us learn about capability but also can lead to a mindset of the human as a shortcoming and encourage a focus on systems failure instead of success, offering a limited and likely non-representative data set. For TAG #75, we ask how the HFE community can promote the view of humans as assets rather than liabilities, enabling the system to build resilience and increasing successful outcomes. The focus is on humans as the strength in the system.
