Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
|Date issued:||16 February 2001|
|Safety action status:|
See Air Safety Information Paper `ATSB Survey of Licensed
Aircraft Maintenance Engineers in Australia'.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that CASA
ensures through hours of duty limits, or other means, that
maintenance organisations manage the work schedules of staff in a
manner that reduces the likelihood of those staff suffering from
excessive levels of fatigue while on duty.
|Date issued:||03 September 2001|
|Response from:||Civil Aviation Safety Authority|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
Given that "fatigue was listed as a contributing factor in just
over 12% of occurrences", CASA believes that there is clearly a
need for the appropriate regulation of this issue.
