This manual includes an examination of the discipline known as Human Factors. In many senses, as human error is cited as the primary cause of almost all aviation incidents and accidents, this subject may be considered the most important of your entire study. Interpersonal communications, a shared sense of company culture, and a good understanding of personal and workplace stresses are absolutely critical to aviation safety for you, your teammates, and the hundreds of thousands of people who will fly in the aircraft you maintain.

The other aspect of human factors is your own personal safety. Your education, experience, and professional goals will mean little if struck down by an injury or other workplace hazard. While this manual covers each of these aspects and more, it is most important to understand that human factors is not just something to learn for a test. It is a way of life affecting everything you do and every day you do it. Learning to incorporate these concepts in your day-day work will ensure a long, rewarding, and successful professional career.

Also included in this manual is a detailed description of the the MEDA model (Maintenance Error Decision Aid)developed by The Boeing Company. Included is its philosophy and process, how to develop and implement the program, along with sample MEDA forms and advice on how to complete it while getting the most of the program.
