Human Factor in Aviation

Aviation has achieved a substantial increase in terms of safety and security, if we think about the world of aviation 50, 60 or 70 years ago we will realize that technology is making its way gradually decreasing the risk of human error.

Human factor has been identified as one of the main causes of aircraft crashes due to the lack of aircraft maintenance, bad communication, distraction and promptness deficiency, and has recently become a major worry in maintenance procedures.

As this issue became more and more important, ICAO and all the other international aviation authorities are constantly providing conferences and training courses focused on this topic.

It is possible to avoid accidents by using an adequate and effective tool: the "Prevention". Preventing a negative event does not mean assuming that it will occur, but concretely implementing all the human and technological resources to avert it. For prevention to be effective, it must be implemented at all levels and by all the people involved in the flight activity.

Human factors have people as their object of study, while carrying out their duties, their insertion into the work environment both in a physical and interpersonal sense, their relationship with work tools and procedures to be followed. The goal of this research is to pursue safety and efficiency.

Once achieved, the Human Factor certificate is valid for two years, it is always recommended to participate at the renewal course a few weeks before the expiry date.

Safety first is the main concern of HumanX!
