Guidance: MGN 520 (M) Human Element Guidance

A consistent factor in almost all incidents, accidents and errors is the human element - the most common twelve significant people factors. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency's MGN 520 (M) Human Element Guidance should be read with the Human Element Guidance series of MGNs, “The Human Element - a guide to human behaviour in the shipping industry” and other maritime human element publications.
