John Rahilly, GJS instructor, teaches a Human Factors class at Meridian.
Last week, all Meridian employees were required to participate in the first part of a two-day class called ‘Human Factors’. The objective of this course is to raise awareness of human error and to develop ways to prevent or reduce the occurrence and consequences of human error in aviation. The expansion of human factors awareness is the single most significant opportunity to make aviation both safer and more efficient. The course is taught by Global Jet Services (GJS), a leader in on-location training since 1992. GJS provides world class customer service while maintaining the highest degree of quality, flexibility, value, and safety.
Human Factors is a valuable course and it is highly recommended by the FAA and EASA. The course is also approved for Inspection Authorization (IA) and maintenance training. John Langschultz, VP Meridian Jet Center, has this to say, “Safety begins at the maintenance level, but it is ultimately the responsibility of everyone in the company. This course shows how human performance can affect aviation operations. Human errors account for 80% of aviation incidents, and this course teaches how we are all responsible for safety, and how we can improve safety and efficiency by understanding how external variables affect personnel.”
The second part of the course will be taught on-site at Meridian in August 2013.
As part of its wellness intiative, Meridian will start a smoking cessation program that will offer smokers $100 in incentives to help kick the habit. The so-called “Smoking Challenge” will begin on March 18 and continue through June 7. The company will reimburse participants up to $50.00 for the purchase of smoking aids. Then, upon completion of the 3-month program, participants will receive another $50.00, provided they meet the following requirements:
1. Attend at least three meetings (Two meetings will be held each month.)
2. Join either NJ Quitnet or NY Quits (Both sites offer excellent support and information on smoking cessation.)
3. Submit a monthly certificate to the program organizer after joining one of the above sites
4. Complete a brief smoking quiz
The program is being organized by John Langschultz, VP Meridian Jet Center. John had this to say about the program, “Quitting smoking is a hard thing to do, but if you are committed to breaking old habits, and can marshall the support you need to get through the rough patches, you can do it. I know because I am an ex-smoker. This program is a great way to get started, and I would encourage any smoker (who works for Meridian) to join the challenge. After all, there’s no time like the present to quit smoking.”
