Why understanding Human Factors enhances performance and safety in aviation

Southpac is conducting a 2-Day aviation Human Factors Course to meet Part 145 requirements for Human Factors Training

As well as addressing Part 145 requirements for Human Factors training, Southpac’s upcoming Human Factors Course looks at humans as components of complex systems – and how people are ultimately responsible for ensuring the success and safety of the aviation industry.

There are hundreds of human behaviour variables which affect the operations of any air carrier. These include both internal operations and client or passenger-facing processes. Sometimes, human error can have critical consequences. Many studies attribute up to 80% of critical incidents to human error. Other aviation roles including passenger or customer service can be optimised by focusing on human factors.

Understanding human factors is not only important for the maintenance sector, but provides valuable knowledge for all areas of the aviation industry.

Southpac’s Human Factors Course aligns with Part-145 requirements for aviation Human Factors training, and looks at humans as components of complex systems – examining how these sociotechnical systems harmonise to produce safe and effective operations.

The course focuses on:

  • Human performance and limitations
  • Understanding error and violations
  • Safety and Organisational culture
  • Sleep and fatigue management
  • Situational awareness
  • Teamwork and communication

Importantly, our facilitators are renowned specialists in aviation human factors – providing participants with the latest human factors knowledge to enhance performance and safety within their own organisation.
