Release Date: 2017-03-02
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Situations and systems are easier to change than the human condition - particularly when people are well-trained and well-motivated, as they usually are in maintenance organisations. This is a down-to-earth practitioner’s guide to managing maintenance error, written in Dr. Reason’s highly readable style. It deals with human risks generally and the special human performance problems arising in maintenance, as well as providing an engineer’s guide for their understanding and the solution. After reviewing the types of error and violation and the conditions that provoke them, the author sets out the broader picture, illustrated by examples of three system failures. Central to the book is a comprehensive review of error management, followed by chapters on:- managing person, the task and the team; - the workplace and the organization; - creating a safe culture; It is then rounded off and brought together, in such a way as to be readily applicable for those who can make it work, to achieve a greater and more consistent level of safety in maintenance activities. The readership will include maintenance engineering staff and safety officers and all those in responsible roles in critical and systems-reliant environments, including transportation, nuclear and conventional power, extractive and other chemical processing and manufacturing industries and medicine.

Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Heilpädagogik, Sonderpädagogik, Note: 2,0, Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (Institut für Sonderpädagogik), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In meiner Arbeit werde ich das Konzept der Wahrnehmungsförderung nach Félicie AFFOLTER vorstellen und dessen Bedeutung in der heilpädagogischen Arbeit mit Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung erörtern. Nach der Erläuterung grundlegender Zusammenhänge im Bereich von Wahrnehmung und Wahrnehmungsstörungen komme ich zu AFFOLTERs Konzept der Wahrnehmungsförderung. Einführend stelle ich kurz die Person Félicie AFFOLTER vor und zeige die Entstehung ihres Förderkonzepts im Laufe ihrer Forschungsarbeiten auf. Daneben gehe ich auf die Zielgruppe von Personen ein, für deren Förderung das Konzept von AFFOLTER besonders geeignet ist. Anschließend gehe ich auf die allgemeinen Grundprinzipien des Konzepts ein, zeige die einzelnen Stufen des Lernprozesses beim Führen auf, sowie wichtige, beim Führen zu beachtende Grundregeln. Zum Abschluss dieses Kapitels komme ich dann auf die Umsetzung der „gespürten Interaktion“ im Alltag zu sprechen und erläutere AFFOLTERs Ausführungen zur Anwendung ihres Konzepts im Rahmen von Therapiesituationen. Das zweite Kapitel meiner Arbeit wird sich dann mit der Anwendung des AFFOLTER-Konzepts in der heilpädagogischen Förderung von Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung beschäftigen. Zunächst erläutere ich, in welchen Bereichen der Förderung von Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung das Konzept von F. AFFOLTER angewendet wird, so zum Beispiel im Rahmen der Einzelförderung, aber auch im Alltag. Zur Beurteilung der Anwendung von AFFOLTERs Konzept in der Förderung von Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung stelle ich SPECKs (1999) Richtziele der heilpädagogischen Arbeit mit Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung vor. Danach werde ich aufzeigen, inwiefern diese Ziele durch Anwendung des AFFOLTER-Konzepts bei Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung zu erreichen sind.

Human Reliability Error and Human Factors in Engineering Maintenance

Author: B.S. Dhillon
Publisher: CRC Press

Release Date: 2009-04-08
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Of the billions of dollars spent on plant management and operation annually, an estimated 80% of the total amount is spent to rectify the chronic failure of systems, machines, and humans. Although information on human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance is scattered throughout journals and proceedings, no single resource covers all of these topics within a maintenance safety framework. Consulting different and diverse sources can not only make finding information laborious and time consuming, but also cause delays on the job. Human Reliability, Error, and Human Factors in Engineering Maintenance with Reference to Aviation and Power Generation provides engineers a tool for meeting the increasing problem of human error. Drawing on a myriad of sources, the book provides quick and easy access to information that can then be immediately applied to actual problems in the field. It includes examples and their solutions to illustrate engineering safety management at work and gives readers a view of the intensity of developments in the area. The author’s clear, concise, user-friendly style breaks the information down into understandable and applicable concepts. This book not only provides up-to-date coverage of the on-going efforts in human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance, but also covers useful developments in the general areas of human factors, reliability, and error. This information can then be translated into increased maintenance safety that has a positive impact on the bottom line.

Applied Human Factors in Aviation Maintenance

Author: Manoj S. Patankar
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781351957670
Release Date: 2017-07-05
Genre: Transportation

Considering the global awareness of human performance issues affecting maintenance personnel, there is enough evidence in the US ASRS reports to establish that systemic problems such as impractical maintenance procedures, inadequate training, and the safety versus profit challenge continue to contribute toward latent failures. Manoj S. Patankar and James C. Taylor strongly believe in incorporating the human factors principles in aviation maintenance. In this, their second of two volumes, they place particular emphasis on applying human factors principles in a book intended to serve as a practical guide, as well as an academic text. Features include: - A real 'how to' approach that serves as a companion to the previous volume: 'Risk Management and Error Reduction in Aviation Maintenance'. - Self-reports of maintenance errors used throughout to illustrate the systemic susceptibility for errors as well as to discuss corresponding solutions. - Two tools - a pre-task scorecard and a post-task scorecard - introduced as means to measure individual as well as organizational safety performance. - Interpersonal trust and professionalism explored in detail. - Ethical and procedural issues associated with collection and analysis of both qualitative as well as quantitative safety data discussed. The intended readership includes aviation maintenance personnel, e.g. FAA-type aircraft mechanics, CAA-type aircraft maintenance engineers, maintenance managers, regulators, and aviation students.
