The aim of human factor in aviation maintenance is to identify and study the factors that affect engineer’s performance in aviation maintenance and inspection. Human error in is a important topic due to the increasing in accidents in the past years. The aim of this paper is to understand the causes of human error in aviation, as a result of knowing the reasons, it will be easier to help aviation industry to be safer for passengers and pilot . Since several researches have discussed and prove that the causes of accidents in a large percentage is because of human error. Maintenance engineers have great responsibility in making the aircraft airworthy and safe to fly .However researchers are trying to minimize the stress on the crew and develop their awareness on this specific issue by establishing safety awareness programs in order to prove the efficiency of their work due to expectations of making mistakes is higher. Human error can be defined as unsuitable human behavior that reduce levels of system efficiency or safety, which could or could not lead to accident or injury (Wickens, 1998). Technically, the…show more content…
Fatigue can be mentally or physically so when the engineer is under fatigue ,he may have reduction on decision-making ,coordination, strength, and balance.
