Now Offering Human Factors Training For Other High-Risk Industries!

     The Aviation Consulting Group is a worldwide leading provider of aviation Human Factors training. TACG has been providing HF training to aviation operators on a worldwide basis since 2000. Our HF courses are cost-effective, flexible, and practical (we minimize theory and maximize real-world experiences, examples, and case studies).

How We Can Help

 

     Human Factors training has proven to be an effective countermeasure against human error in the workplace. Our HF courses create an in-depth understanding and awareness of the factors that contribute to human error; errors that lead to accidents that cost billions of dollars worth of damage and equipment loss each year, as well as loss of life. Most, if not all, of these accidents are preventable! HF training is a highly cost-effective tool that can help minimize human error and reduce accidents and incidents in the workplace.

 

Human Factors Defined

 

     The multidisciplinary field of human factors is devoted to optimizing human performance and reducing human error. It incorporates the methods and principles of the behavioral and social sciences, engineering, and physiology. It is the applied science that studies people working together in concert with machines. It embraces variables that influence individual performance and variables that influence team or crew performance. It is recognized that inadequate system design or inadequate operator training can contribute to individual human error that leads to system performance degradation. Further, it is recognized that inadequate design and management of crew tasks can contribute to group errors that lead to system performance degradation (FAA, AC 120-51E).

Live Training Is More Effective Than Online Or CBT

 

     When it comes to HF training...a soft skills subject...the most effective delivery method is face-to-face with a live facilitator. Our highly experienced facilitators present timely, research-based topics, guide discussions, and interject lots of anecdote (as well as some humor). A face-to-face class also allows greater interaction between attendees through personal experiences, large/small group exercises, activities, and case studies. Additionally, a live facilitator can answer student questions in real time. These are just some of the benefits of face-to-face training versus online or computer-based training.

HF For Maintenance Operations

 

 

     Our HF(M) courses are specifically targeted to aircraft maintenance activities. The courses have been approved by regulators and CAA's worldwide (including FAA, Transport Canada, and EASA) and are also approved for FAA I/A renewals and the FAA AMT Awards Program. We work with manufacturers, airlines, MRO's, FBO's, and more.

HF For Ramp Operations

 

 

     The Flight Safety Foundation (Lacagnina, 2007) estimates that the airline industry worldwide is losing $5 billion a year in direct and indirect costs associated with aircraft damage on the ramp. It is further estimated that 243,000 people are injured on the ramp every year. The majority of these financial losses, and on-the-job injuries, are due to human factors (HF) issues, and almost all of them are preventable!

    

     Our HF(R) courses are specifically targeted to airside (and even landside) activities. We work with airports, contractors, caterers, cleaners, or any company that conducts work in the ramp environment.

Customizable Courses For Aviation

 

     TACG offers the most flexible HF course in the aviation industry. We can modify and customize courses (i.e., content and time) to meet client needs and requirements.

 

Need a customized HF course for an FBO? We can do that!

How about a customized HF course specifically for upper management? No problem!

Or, perhaps you are a manufacturer and would like a course that specifically addresses HF in the manufacturing/production process. We can do that too!

HF Training For Other High-Risk Industries

 

     In addition to the aviation industry, TACG also offers HF courses and consulting to other high-risk industries. Based on the proven error-reduction strategies used for decades in the aviation industry, our courses are easily transferable to other high-risk, high-consequence businesses. And, as always, we customize your course to fit your specific industry, utilizing practical case studies and less theory. Some of the industries that we can provide HF training for include:   

 

Medicine

Maritime

Rail

Nuclear

Chemical

Military

Need A Self-Sustaining HF Program At Your Organization? 

    

     TACG can help your organization develop its own self-sustaining HF program! We've done it for Cessna Aircraft (see case study below) and we can do it for you! We provide HF implementation and consultation to large and small organizations on a worldwide basis.

 

 

Case Study

     In the spring of 2006, Cessna Aircraft contacted TACG to explore the possibility of implementing a human factors training program for all of its facilities (2300+ employees). After a formal presentation/interview, Cessna chose TACG, on a 6 month contractual basis, to develop and implement its human factors training program. TACG president Dr. Bob Baron developed the program on a highly collaborative basis with high-level Cessna training personnel. The human factors program included development of customized training media, train-the-trainer courses and assessment methods. Dr. Baron received excellent feedback on this major project and Cessna Aircraft has been cited in the media as having a “world class” human factors training program for its employees (cited in Aviation Maintenance Magazine, January 2009).
