Human factors contribute to approx. 80% of all aviation accidents, according to Paul Salerno, President of OAG. "Providing this valuable publication will raise our clients' awareness of human factors in the aviation workplace, and hopefully prevent accidents," states Salerno.
Omni Air Group will deliver Aviation Human Factors Industry News via email, as well as by uploading the publication directly to the safety library of each client's Incident Reporter™ SMS database. Past issues will also be uploaded to clients' safety libraries by request. "Safety communications such as this are essential in promoting and maintaining a positive safety culture," says Salerno. "These communications 'fuel' the SMS by helping employees recognize high-risk conditions, attitudes, and behaviors which may present hazards in the workplace. With the right safety culture, employees should report these hazards, errors, and other events through their company's Employee Reporting System. This provides managers with information needed to effect continuous improvement in their aviation operations."
"Training is essential in making these processes work properly," continues Salerno. "A solid understanding and awareness of human factors, together with safety risk management training for front-line employees, can help provide critical system defenses against accidents, and reduce the latent conditions present in all organizations."
OAG’s interactive SMS eLearning courses address both human factors awareness for front-line employees, and human factors and organizational safety for managers. Salerno adds: “A successful Aviation Safety Management System depends on employee education, and human factors awareness is a critical element, in every department. By teaching employees how to apply safety risk management methods to their daily tasks, and by teaching managers to use more formalized SRM techniques during job planning, both safety and organizational performance are improved. We'll be recommending Roger Hughes and DHFI to our clients who want a more in-depth understanding of human factors, and their importance in the prevention of accidents."
