Human Factors in Safety

Download the daily resources here.

Human factors are issues affecting how people do their jobs. They are the social and personal skills, such as communication and decision making which complement our technical skills. These are important for safe and efficient aviation. The study of human factors involves applying scientific knowledge about the human body and mind to help understand human capabilities and limitations. Human factors knowledge can be used to reduce the likelihood of errors and build more error tolerant and more resilient systems.

Promoting a Just Safety Culture 

Download the daily resources here.

A safety culture is a broad, organisation-wide approach to safety management. A safety culture is the result of combined individual and group efforts toward values, attitudes, goals and proficiency of an organization’s health and safety program. In creating a Just Safety Culture, all levels of management are highly regarded on how they act toward workers and on a day-to-day basis. Upper management commitment to workplace safety helps workers take it more seriously and translates into a safer work environment for everyone. Responsibility for encouraging the safety culture may start with management, but it trickles down to everyone in the company. Everyone has a part in keeping themselves and others safe.

Foreign Object Debris

Download the daily resources here.

Foreign Object Debris (FOD) at airports includes any object found in an inappropriate location that, as a result of being in that location, can damage equipment or injure personnel. FOD includes a wide range of material, including loose hardware, pavement fragments, catering supplies, building materials, rocks, sand, pieces of luggage, and even wildlife. FOD is found at terminal gates, cargo aprons, taxiways, runways, and run-up pads. An effective debris-control program can greatly reduce the high cost of FOD damage and the potential for injury to personnel.

Wellness in the Workplace

Workplace wellness is any workplace activity or organisational policy designed to support healthy behaviour in the workplace and to improve health outcomes. Workplace wellness often comprises activities such as health education, mental health awareness programs, on-site fitness programs or facilities. Employees who need extra assistance within the workplace get the help they need to perform at their best. By providing wellness initiatives, organisations can communicate a certain level of empathy and support for their people, thus boosting satisfaction and confidence between the employer and the employee.

Safety Management Systems

Download the daily resources here.

A safety management system (SMS) is a systematic approach to managing safety and is tailored to individual aerodromes. With changes to the CASR/MOS Part 139 coming into effect from August 2020, Airport Safety Week is a great way to start the conversation on Safety Management Systems for those aerodromes who may not be fully aware of the legislative requirements to gain compliance.
