People are at the core of our aviation system and the need to remain aware of the potential for human error driven exposure is ever present.

We must strive to ensure we are able to deliver a strong human performance to protect both the person and the system.

Today 80% of Aircraft Accidents and incidents are caused by Human Factor errors. Whether it is pilot error, maintenance error or Air traffic Control or other ground related causal factors, ultimately does not matter human error is human error.

So we know about the importance of Aviation Human Factors Training, but how to make a difference?

There is a deep understanding of the various causes of error after the event, the challenge is to understand before we have an incident or accident the risks and exposures which the organization faces.

We need to effectively manage human factors within the organization, to do so we need to address the risks and exposures, all threats need to be understood and mitigation put into place to address them.
