Seminar Topics:

 (8AM - 5PM)


Guidelines for Safe Line Operations

Seminar participants will create and then discuss specific guidelines to enhance ramp safety.


Understanding the Error Management Model

A proven approach to managing human error on the ramp.  This model highlights threats facing line service specialist, and valuable techniques to appropriately manage those threats.


Monitoring and Challenging Less Than Safe Practices

The monitoring and challenging process is a learned skill which all line service specialists need to resolve potential errors.  We will discuss an individual's personal barriers to monitoring and challenging, plus how to monitor and challenge effectively.


 Accident Case Study

A hypothetical accident at your FBO will be explored in depth.  Any accident is the final link in a chain of events.  We will develop the chain of events for this accident; then learn critical skills for recognizing and breaking that chain. 


Improving Crucial Decision-Making

Many times a single decision is a critical link in the chain of events resulting in an accident.  This module focuses on the basic components of a decision-making process for a line service specialist and the many factors which influence that process.


Situational Awareness (SA) on the Ramp

Ramp personnel must maintain excellent SA in order to perform safely.   We will define SA, discuss the causes of poor SA, and highlight specific ways to maintain a high level of this critical skill.


Commitment and Implementation of Safe Practices

We briefly review the concepts and ideas presented in the seminar.  Hopefully, each participant will have found something valuable that he/she will use on the line.  Each line service specialist will verbally commit to some action which will improve safety at their FBO.
