Despite   technological advancements, human error is still the major cause of aviation  incidents and accidents. Understanding the role of the human in our systems and  processes, especially their strengths and weaknesses, is the last step to  overcome in improving safety in aviation. This lecture details the challenges  the aviation industry has to manage in order to make air travel the  statistically safest form of transport.

Marcus Madden will speak about how the  knowledge of human factors is interpreted and understood by Aerospace organisations  in their ambition to achieve an appropriate Safety culture, with Just culture  being a foundation on which a Safety culture is built. 

Marcus has over 40  years’ experience in the aviation industry as an EASA, UK CAA and FAA licenced  engineer, supervisor, and manager. Marcus has enjoyed a varied career, working  all over the world for national flag carriers, low cost, and cargo operators, before  joining Baines Simmons. His client experience is extensive, including the European Defence Agency, national aviation authorities (including the UK CAA),   UK MAA, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, BAE System, Rolls Royce, QinetiQ, British Airways, IndiGo, SAAB, GE and Pratt and Whitney.
