Research Paper from the year 2016 in the subject Cultural Studies - Miscellaneous, , language: English, abstract: This paper integrates the cultural framework into the existing Human Factors Analysis Classification System (HFACS) framework. The cultural framework explores the contributory factors of each part of the system from a cultural perspective. The HFACS framework is used as a tool to establish the gaps and ultimately how the cultural components are integrated into the framework. The paper provides similar expression in the new integrated framework which will be symmetrical to the aim. Ultimately, the integration of the cultural and HFACS-SYS framework is to produce an additional diagnostic tool to the existing HFACS framework. The previous analyses show that on some highly critical cultural factors, factors which have played a major part in previous accidents is not currently detected. The most significant criterion is that the new framework will provide the same definitions and philosophy used by the two frameworks, if they are used singly. Results: The paper undertook the following: (a) provided a short description of the cultural and HFACS-SYS frameworks and their key relationship; (b) explored the integration process, and (c) presented the combined framework. Conclusion: The paper provides further insights previously developed cultural framework, blend them with HFACS-SYS to address this shortfall and improve on a tool which is widely used for accident analysis. Application: HFACS-SYS will be applicable to a wider audience of practitioners, academia and organisations to assist in the development of cultural training programs and investigation processes.
