In collaboration with the HAI Safety Committee, HAI’s communications department has begun work to update the popular discussion-starter safety video series, Pressure Points, designed to facilitate group discussions. Each video coupled prepared discussion guides with videos that could be stopped at designated points to discuss topics raised in the videos.
“The videos are intended to be used as a lessons learned from past occurrences — lessons that can help foster a culture in which we capture and use day-to-day information to improve safety in operations and maintenance,” says Tarek Loutfy, chairman of the safety committee. “It is impossible to eliminate risk from aviation. However, it is possible to minimize such risk by learning from past occurrences and applying the lessons learned to future operations under similar circumstances.”
The first video in the updated series will discuss go/no-go aeronautical decision-making. The National Transportation Safety Board is participating in the production, with investigators discussing recent accidents. The completed video is anticipated in the first quarter of 2016.
HAI expects to update other videos in the series in the months ahead.
