This is not a surprise considering that human beings are prone to making mistakes. Although the number of accidents caused by mechanical failure has drastically declined incidences associated with human error have continued to rise. Human error still continues to be the leading contributor of more aircraft accidents and incidents compared to any other single factor (Burke, Salas, Wightman & Wilson, 2006). Errors by the flight crew, air traffic controllers, maintenance personnel and others with a direct impact on the safety of the flight constitute human errors. The persistent occurrence of accidents caused by human error could be an indication that the interventions directed towards reducing the occurrence of mechanical failures are more effective as compared to those aimed at avoiding human errors.
December 2, 1943 USS Narwhal surfaces at Butuan Bay on its 8th War Patrol; McKay family Col. Fertig and his men were waiting at the mouth of Agusan River at Butuan Bay for USS Narwhal to arrive and surface and he was expecting to receive tons of war supplies. Narwhal was on her 8th patrol that left Port Darwin in November 25 bound for Butuan Bay loaded with 90 tons of arms, ammunition, medicine and stores to re-supply Fertig’s guerrillas in Mindanao. Also aboard the Narwhal, twelve operatives composed of three Army officers and nine en-listed men who were Filipinos selected from the First and Second Filipino Infantry Regiment in California to be dropped off on different islands in Southern Philippines. The officers were Capt. Smith, Capt.
Tom and the crew sailed back to Brooklyn to fix the damages. After the ship was fixed Captain Ericsson decided it was time to face the Merrimac. The Monitor began it’s journey toward Hampton Road, Virginia. On way to Virginian, the ironclad comes face to face with a storm. Tom and everyone aboard was terrified.
However, what’s amazing though is the size of errors that lead to those accidents in most cases. Maritime accidents that occur due to natural factors such as a ships being caught in an unexpected storm, unfavorable tides, strong winds etc. are totally beyond human control and also make up rather small part of the causes for maritime accidents. The reason why human errors play such a vital role in marine industry despite of excessive mechanization and technical advancement is that even with everything, marine industry remains a people’s industry. There are machines running on software programmed into a computer but you need a person on that computer to be looking into it.
The men immediately rowed towards it, and found it to be the fluke of a large anchor, which was firmly embedded in the sand. Having procured the assistance of another boat’s crew, they contrived to fasten around it some strong ropes, which they secured to the boats, and after considerable exertion, managed to drag the huge anchor from its long resting place, and to tow it towards the Lady’s cove, where it was landed. It measured 13feet in length and nearly 8 feet in breath, and from the fact of its being greatly corroded, and thickly encrusted with rust and sand, and also from its being discovered between the shore and that part of Tramore Bay where the Sea Horse was lost on the night of 31st January 1816, having a wing of the 59th Regiment on board, and where no large vessel had ever ventured before, it is strongly conjectured that this anchor belonged to that ill-fated vessel, and is therefore, viewed as an object of considerable interest. It is a singular fact that on the 31st January, 1847, during a heavy gale of wind, a sword, encased in a leather scabbard, was cast on shore about the same place, and although 31 years had then elapsed, the name of the maker was perfectly legible upon the blade, and from circumstances which afterwards transpired it was proved
Accidents happen. We’re human, mistakes are very natural. They will always happen, no matter how careful we think we are. In normal everyday life, a mistake or two is not the end of your life. But the thing is, with space, a tiny mistake that is overlooked or forgotten can cause catastrophic consequences.
In any machine for technical reason, users sometimes need to uninstall applications. If any application stop working, then need to uninstall that for the benefit of the system. So users need to uninstall applications and software from the computer for their necessity. But to uninstall applications or programs by manual uninstallation process, can bring troubles in the system. That’s why in
They happen everywhere and they happen all the time, but technology is helping us in reduce the frequency. As stated, human errors happen everywhere, but different places have bigger consequences than others. If a mistake occurs in the safety of your home, to a certain degree, it can have little to no effect on your life. If that same mistake occurred in an airplane part manufacturer than the effects would be catastrophic. Therefore using advanced technology (AI) to help us in reducing these errors could be considered a breakthrough in technology by many.
Other forms of human error may only occur hardly ever during exceptional circumstances. For example, crews may miss-diagnose the cause of a novel failure. There are therefore a number of factors which influence the behavior of maintenance crews and the likelihood of human error. Therefore human error needs to be Considered both in terms of its effect on safety of people and also in terms of its effect on damage to plant or equipment or reduced reliability and subsequent breakdown. REDUCING HUMAN ERROR It should be noted that the solutions for reducing human errors and improve safety in aircraft maintenance are different for different types of
If you have a large system, the operating system has greater responsibilities and powers. It makes sure that different programs and users running at the same time does not interfere with each other. The operating system also has a responsibility for security and ensures that any unauthorised users does
