Abstract : This guide is a pragmatic handbook for human factors consultants to Safety Investigation Boards convened to investigate United States Air Force aircraft mishaps. It describes the process of being identified to consult to a mishap investigation (safety) board, methods of collecting and analyzing data, and suggestions for interacting effectively with mishap board members. Interviewing receives extensive treatment. Readers are given, in an appendix, a suggested 'crash kit' to better prepare them to be effective consultants. The USAF School of Aerospace Medicine Aircraft Mishap Investigation and Prevention course is outlined in an appendix.
