Human Factor Failure Mode & Effects Analysis Webinar

Human Error has the potential to significantly impact a business’s performance, regarding product safety, quality performance as well as health & safety. As a result, the Management of Human Factors in the Aerospace Industry are a mandated requirement in a company’s Safety Management System (SMS) required by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Regulations and AS13100.

This interactive Webinar is designed to share an approach used by Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace’s Assembly Operations that combines an FMEA approach to enable its goal of minimizing the errors caused by Human Factors. This simple approach has shown benefit to both assembly and office environments.

Ian and Steve will share details of the approach as well as describe the actual deployment in key areas, highlighting the benefits seen so far. Join us for this free webinar presented by Dr. Ian Riggs, Rolls-Royce and Steve Roebuck, Rolls-Royce on May 18 to learn more.
