Aviation Human Factors and SMS: The Contribution of a Generation


Add your own review!

Overview

Progress in the post-WWII Fifties, the introduction of the jet engine in the Sixties, and the early technology in the Seventies effectively and efficiently supported safety and the service delivery needs of a slow-growing and largely static system. This book builds upon the need to preserve international civil aviation's corporate memory about facts and people, in the face of ever-constant and often radical change, and the de-personalization of aviation. This is achieved by providing a roadmap of key institutional and operational events that, since the mid-Eighties, have shaped aviation safety thinking into the present-day paradigm, by redeeming failures and revisiting successes, by associating each fork in the road to a specific shift in prevailing paradigm and, most importantly, by crediting individuals and teams without whose unique contribution the shifts in paradigms would not have been achieved.

Author Information

Captain Daniel Maurino retired from ICAO in December 2009, following a 21-year career at ICAO Headquarters based in Montreal, Canada. He created and held the position of Coordinator, Flight Safety and Human Factors Programme for fourteen years, during which he developed and implemented ICAO's Human Factors Programme. Subsequently, he was assigned the task of developing the Organization's Safety Management Programme, with responsibility over all matters pertaining safety management systems (SMS) and the State Safety Programme (SSP). As part of this assignment, he created the Integrated Safety Management (ISM) Section within the Air Navigation Bureau, and was the Section's first Chief. Dan is either author or editor of numerous ICAO manuals and circulars. He is co-author, with Professor James Reason, of the book Beyond Aviation Human Factors, published by Ashgate, and co-editor, with Professor Eduardo Salas, of Human Factors in Aviation, published by Academic Press in the United States. He is also series co-editor of Ashgate's Human Factors in Flight Operations with Professors Key Dismukes (NASA Ames, USA) and Sidney Dekker (Griffith University, Australia). Dan has been the recipient of many industry awards, the most recent being the Royal Aeronautical Society's Lifetime Achievement Award (the first ever in the history of the Society) for his exceptional contribution to international aviation safety over more than two decades.
