Research output: Book/ReportReport


The Human Factors methodological framework was developed to evaluate the effectiveness of selected safety measures in terms of making level crossings (LCs) more self-explaining and forgiving, and hence increasing their safety. The methodological framework includes a practical Human Factors Assessment Tool (HFAT) accompanied by an implementation guide which presents how the HFAT can be used in a real case study. The purpose of this deliverable is to summarise the theoretical background of the Human Factors methodological framework and the development process of the first version of the Human Factors Assessment Tool. In addition, this deliverable aims to explain how the HFAT was adjusted and updated in the second part of the project based on feedback obtained during the HFAT testing phase in four of the project’s pilot tests, covering 14 measures.
