Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Today, DB&A and George Mason University School of Law, Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security, delivered a Fatigue Risk Management in Aviation Operations symposium.  Whether it is flight operations, maintenance, or airport operations, today's 24/7 aviation industry must understand and mitigate fatigue hazards in order to maintain alertness and safety.  The symposium equipped attendees with the knowledge and approaches necessary to effectively fight fatigue in the operational setting.  The human physiology of fatigue and the hazards it represents in the workplace were explored, along with effective methods and tools to conduct fatigue risk management, mitigate fatigue risks and enhance public safety.  Instructors and presenters came from a range of disciplines at George Mason University, including Dave Buczek and Dr. Melissa Mallis who are both CIP/HS Fellows, as well as notable members of the fatigue science, practitioner and government communities.  The keynote address was provided by Dr. Mark Rosekind from the US National Transportation Safety Board.
