DB&A Conducts Fatigue Research for FAA in Alaska

DB&A Conducts Fatigue Research for FAA in Alaska
Saturday, February 11, 2012

DB&A has just completed a data collection effort for the FAA to begin to understand the extent to which fatigue may impact Alaska Flight Service Station (AFSS) staff performance.  The effort included staff interviews at eight AFSS facilities located across the state.  Designed to gather subjective data about perceived fatigue and objective work and schedule related data, the effort is part of a multi-phase project and is another example of the efforts that the FAA is taking to seriously examine its operations, identify and mitigate fatigue risk in its operations.  DB&A was selected for this effort because of our experience in fatigue risk management and we look forward to assisting the FAA in analyzing the results of the data we gather and plan next steps to continuously improve AFSS Safety.
