Tattenhall-based Training Company becomes International Leader assisting Safety Critical Organisations
High Reliability Organisations (safety and performance critical) are turning to Tattenhall-based Company 'Global Air Training' to reduce human error in the workplace with the introduction of a Human Factors based approach to safety and efficiency.
There is growing awareness in many organisations of the impact of human factors on safety, quality and efficiency. A human factors approach to safety differs from traditional safety training in that the focus is less with the technical knowledge and skills required to perform specific tasks, but rather with the cognitive and interpersonal skills needed to effectively manage a team-based, high-risk activity.
Driven by demanding regulatory requirements the aviation industry has pioneered the study and practical application of Human Factors knowledge to achieve extraordinary levels of safety alongside enhanced quality and efficiency. Based upon the concepts researched and proven in aviation, Global Air Training has developed Human Factors training programmes to provide the same benefits for businesses and industry sectors outside aviation.
These courses have been delivered internationally in a range of business sectors where safety and performance are critical issues. Organisations have benefited from this training in sectors which include healthcare, emergency services, energy, utilities, chemical, logistics and finance.
Any organisation that aspires to invest in its people, enhance performance and increase the safety and efficiency of the company should invest in a human factors based approach.
Quote from Dianne Worby (Director of Global Air Training) This training provides a platform to learn lessons from other industries and is ideal for trainers and managers at all levels.
A key objective of the programme is to enable the participant to train, coach and mentor others in human factors skills and concepts and also to understand how to develop systems and processes which integrate effective HF principles into the organisation. Furthermore participants will learn how to analyse incidents and adverse events using human factors concepts to understand root causes and improve systems.
Global Air Training has over 650 clients worldwide in every continent (including Antarctica) this attracts enormous amounts of international trade to Cheshire annually. Boosting the local economy with increased use of hotels, restaurants, catering companies, taxis and shops in the Tattenhall area.
