1HUMAN FACTORS IN AVIATION MAINTENANCEExecutive Summary:The report gives a brief overview about the human factors of aviation maintenance. There isdiscussion on the concept of Fatigue Risk Management (FRM) with an elaboration on thevarious instances of fatigue that led to poor performance. The report also discusses theimportance of type and form of fatigue risk management through the maintenance of safetyand limitation in working hours. There has been further discussion on the maintenance ofstaff attitudes towards reporting and sharing information in the context that if there were noworking hour limitation then they would report hazards and risk affecting their future income.The report also discusses about the limitations and challenges of a compliance-based systemby stressing on the fact that a regulated system in place does not necessarily imply that thetechnicians would not be fatigued once at work.

3HUMAN FACTORS IN AVIATION MAINTENANCEIntroductionThe report here discusses about the human factors of aviation maintenance. Thediscussion begins with the explanation of the concept of Fatigue Risk Management (FRM)where the report gives a detailed overview about FRM and the various instances wherefatigue has led to poor performance of the employees. The report also gives instances of thestudies performed by various federations on the fatigue level of the aviation maintenancetechnicians (AMT). Based on the studies the report also discusses about the various errorsperformed by technicians due sleep deprivation. There is also discussion on the importance oftype and form of fatigue risk management through the maintenance of safety and limitation inworking hours. There has been further discussion on the maintenance of staff attitudestowards the reporting and sharing of information in the context of no limitation in workinghour and hence hazards and risk affecting their income in future. The report further elaborateson the limitations and challenges of a compliance-based system and stresses on the fact thateven if there were a regulated system in place it does not necessary imply that the technicianswould not be fatigued once they were at work.1. Type and Form of Typical Fatigue Risk ManagementThe Fatigue Risk management (FRM) is a program used for moderating the impactscreated through fatigue. Conceptually, if one looks at it then FRM is a system designed toinform decisions regarding mitigating risk created through fatigue (Lerman et. al 2012).Thus, FRM contains a list of procedures and processes for maximizing alertness of thepersonnel and minimize performance errors that are responsible for creating hazards and riskfor the crewmembers of the aircraft. Therefore, the European Aviation Safety Agency(EASA), Civil Aviation Authority of Australia (CASA) and International Civil Aviation
