Aviation Fatigue Risk Management – 2 Days

Introduction –

ICAO defines Fatigue as “A physiological state of reduced mental or physical performance capability resulting from sleep loss or extended wakefulness and/or physical activity that can impair a crew member’s alertness and ability to safely operate an aircraft or perform safety related duties.”

Moreover ICAO identifies Fatigue Risk Management (FRM) as: “A data-driven means of continuously monitoring and managing fatigue-related safety risks, based upon scientific principles and knowledge that ensures relevant personnel are performing at adequate levels of alertness.”

The potential for Fatigue is without doubt a hazard and can be considered as a significant exposure to human factors hazard because it has the potential to negatively affect the entire spectrum of duties and activities performed by an individual.

Fatigue Risk Management Systems (FRMS) is a mandatory obligation placed on the organisation and may be managed as an integrated part of the Aviation Safety Management System SMS.

The course is focused on the process to determine the specific needs of the organisation, to perform a current status gap analysis and builds on the need for a total understanding of the steps required to fully implement and manage an FRMS within your organisation.
