Description

The focus will be on comprehension of maintenance documentation and how this may affect safety and efficiency in the working environment. Personal experience will be shared where an individual worker attempted to alter an airplane’s condition to conduct a test without properly adhering to the maintenance procedure. When questioned why procedures were not being followed the response indicated that there wasn’t full understanding of the consequences of not following the procedure. In addition to this example, another experience will be shared where a pilot would not accept an airplane for dispatch because ground crew could not effectively communicate to the pilot what corrective actions had taken place on his airplane. This resulted in a flight cancelation that was not necessary.
