Fatigue Risk Awareness Training
Fatigue is a known significant risk in all human performance.
The Fatigue Awareness Training Program (Fitness for Duty), in
place for nearly 10 years, is a web-based training program. It is
available from at www.humanfactorsinfo.com or www.faasafety.
gov. With an estimated 1,000,000 users, the training is about 60
minutes in duration. There are versions for both maintenance and
cabin crews. The training is supplemented with an award-winning
fatigue awareness video, " Grounded. " (See https://www.youtube.
WHY IS THE FATIGUE AWARENESS
TRAINING A SUCCESS?
* Delivers relevant and applied fatigue awareness training
* Web-based delivery, available to users anywhere 24/7, no
instructor needed; facilitator notes provided, can be easily
adapted for in-person delivery
* No cost
* Supplemented with a realistic engaging 18-minute video
Procedural Compliance Support
- The Buck Stops Here
Procedural Compliance (Following the Directions) is the primary
hazard in aviation maintenance, and in all aspects of work and life.
Mechanics/engineers know that following the technical documentation
is a regulation. They usually have access to the necessary
documents and they are capable of following the instructions.
Most instructions are understandable and have been validated
over extensive use. There are procedures to fix/clarify unclear procedures.
Thus, procedural compliance is not a knowledge failure but,
more likely a motivational commitment challenge. " The Buck Stops
with Me " is a web-based training program that promotes 10 attitudes
and behaviors of a Procedural Compliance Champion (https://
training is supplemented with procedural compliance checklists
for mechanics, managers, and procedure writers, respectively.
WHY IS THE BUCK STOPS WITH ME SUCCESSFUL?
* The training addresses a significant industry challenge - maintenance
* The web-based training is easily accessible by users around
the world 24/7
* Free of charge, readily adaptable, saving aviation organizations
a significant amount of investment in training design, development,
What Have We Learned from
These Successful Examples?
A common characteristic of highly used safety interventions is
ease of implementation into maintenance organizations of all sizes.
The interventions are easily customizable. Each of the examples
is matched to known industry needs. There is never an extensive
requirement for ongoing support from government or external
...the heart of your aircraft®
consultants. While Boeing and the FAA have offered early assistance,
it is not a requirement.
The Threat to These Successful
HF Interventions and the Strategy
for Moving Forward
SMS adoption and widespread acceptance is an important contribution
to continuing safety. The examples above contribute to
identifying, addressing and promoting the corrective actions to
reduce HF hazards. For the most part, government has radically
reduced the applied research and development funding to continue
and support creations like the interventions above. It is not likely
that single aviation organizations will allocate the resources that
the FAA aviation maintenance HF program has delivered for the
past 40 years. That situation is an emerging hazard.
To promote and expand effective HF interventions, we need connect
and cross-reference different resources globally. For example,
EASA Human Factors Refresher Package (https://www.easa.
and EASA Together4Safety Wellbeing Resource Hub (https://www.
easa.europa.eu/community/content/wellbeing), a comprehensive
career training portal to help individuals transition back into gainful
