Primary use / Purpose:
The revised 22 item Naval Aviator Human Factors (NAHF) questionnaire (also listed in the MIDSS) was adapted for Surface Warfare Officers(SWOs). The questionnaire consisted of four proposed factors:
- My stress- emphasises the consideration of- and possible compensation for- stressors in oneself.
- Stress of others- emphasises the consideration of- and possible compensation for- stressors in other team members
- Communication- encompasses communication of intent and plans, delegation of tasks and assignment of responsibilities, and the monitoring of team members.
- Command responsibility- appropriate leadership and its implications for the delegation of tasks and responsibilities.
As part of the confirmatory factor analysis items 7, 15, 18, and 19, were discarded.
Through a confirmatory factor analysis it was possible to establish a four factor model was found for the data. A broadly similar model was also found to fit a sample of data from naval aviators.
