Crew Resource Management
Crew Resource Management (CRM) has long been a predominantly aviation-based training strategy but that picture is changing rapidly. The ethos of CRM training is now being adapted, adopted and delivered across industry, including the NHS, and is now seen as being a positive step towards developing individuals and teams, helping them to operate in a far safer and more collaborative environment.
As aircraft have become more complex and reliable it is the human element that provides the ‘weakest link’ and the greatest potential risk to safe flight. CRM training aims to reduce those human factor risks. That reduction of risk can easily be translated via the learning which transcends across both the of aviation and corporate world, bringing with it an extensive range of benefits.
The CRM syllabus includes subject matter that can readily be promoted throughout all organisations as it includes:
- Situational Awareness
- Accidents and Errors
- Fatigue and Vigilance
- Decision Making
- Resilience Development
- Surprise and Startle Effect
- Stress Management
- Workload Management
- Personality Awareness
- Self-assessment and Self -critique
- Attitudes and Behaviour
- Information Acquisition and Processing – critical thinking
- Perception and Attention
- Monitoring and Intervention
Having developed and delivered CRM training extensively throughout the United Kingdom, as well as Jamaica, these bespoke courses are interactive and informative, seeking to draw on the attendee’s own life experiences, ensuring that the training is relatable and relevant to real world situations.
CRM training makes optimum use of all available resources, equipment, procedures and people in order to promote safety and enhance the efficiency of flight operations, by reducing error, avoiding stress and increasing efficiency.
It is time to expand and realise these obvious benefits into a non-aviation corporate world, both public and private.
