What is Human Factors in Aviation Maintenance?
Human Factors aims to understand people’s limitations and capabilities and how they influence a person’s actions and behaviours. This knowledge needs to be applied to the aviation environment, which is dynamic and constantly changing. Understanding how people actually perform under operational circumstances enables the development of systems and procedures that support people to contribute to aviation safety.
This course provides delegates with an overview of Human Factors principles specific to aviation maintenance. It is designed to explore the practical application of the EASA Human Factors regulatory requirements. A series of interactive workshops will examine recent aviation events where the delegates will apply the taught Human Factors principles and models.
This training course will include the following topics:
- Introduction to Human Factors and regulatory requirements.
- Human Performance and Limitations
- Factors affecting Human Performance
- Human Error in Aviation Maintenance
- Organisational Issues and Understanding Blame
- Organisational Factors in Aviation Maintenance
