Grey Owl Aviation Consultants is offering two Human Factors Workshops during May in Titusville, Fla.
The first, Human Factors – Phase I, will be held May 18-19. It is designed to equip aviation maintenance technicians, supervisors and managers with the skills necessary to enhance safety, teamwork and efficiency in the workplace, and reduce aircraft maintenance errors, according to company officials.
The initial two-day, 16-hour workshop has been developed to give aviation technicians insight as to the human element that affects their judgment in the workplace. Central to the workshop is an in-depth discussion and examination of the Dirty Dozen, a variety of human factors such as complacency, distraction, fatigue, and stress, which all affect an individual’s decision making process. Through behavioral analysis and actual case studies, the workshop will demonstrate how safety nets, or countermeasures, can be instituted by the technicians to prevent incidents and accidents due to human error.
The second workshop, Human Factors – Phase II, is slated for May 20. Its objective is to examine the human role in the chain of events that cause an aviation occurrence and develop ways to prevent or lessen the seriousness of the occurrence, according to company officials.
The one-day, 8-hour workshop includes a brief review of Phase I and the Dirty Dozen then moves on to study additional factors that affect a technician’s judgement in the workplace, including attitude, company culture, norms and verbal and written communication.
