The new European Commission (COMM) Regulation 139/2014, and EASA means of compliance, make a firm attempt to require Aerodrome (ADR) Operators and ADR Inspectors to proactively reduce accidents and incidents caused by Human Factors and Organisational Factors.

Human factors principles apply to aeronautical design, certification, training, operations and maintenance and which seek safe interface between the human and other system components by proper consideration to human performance.


ADR Operators and Competent Authorities (CA, CAA, NAA) are obliged to integrate Human Factors principles into policies, procedures, manuals, management systems, personnel and training etc. The aim is to change individuals’ self-awareness and workplace behaviour, and, compel ADR Accountable Managers and senior management to consider adequate and appropriate resources, decision-making and leadership.

When you attend this 2-day training course you will gain the knowledge required to assist your organisation’s integration of Human Factors into every aspect of its work, and therefore fully comply with the new legal requirements. Focus will fall on several key topics of study: uncovering what exactly human factors are and the business & safety needs for their consideration; factors affecting human performance in the workplace; how the organisation contributes to human error; and, how to develop strategies that will reduce accidents caused, and contributed to, by employees, sub-contractors and other personnel. Specifically, attendees should be able to clearly define suitable HF training programmes, highlight necessary revisions to operating procedures, policies and procedures, and develop Human Factors safety awareness programmes. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in discussions and contribute using their personal experiences and knowledge.
