Air Traffic Controllers and Incidents: An Explorative Interview Study

Weikert, Clemens LU ; Johansson, Curt R LU and Akselsson, Roland LU (2001) KONBiN 2001, Safety and Reliability International Conference p.139-142
Abstract
An explorative interview study was performed with 21 air traffic controllers having experienced air traffic control incidents (loss of separation between aircraft). The results of the interview study identified the following main factors contributing to the occurrence of incidents: 1) memory malfunctions; 2) concentration problems; 3) distractions; 4) inadequate expectations; 5) deficient phraseology. The results agree with the results from an analysis of incident investigation reports.
