Spartanburg Safety Seminar: Interruptions and Distractions – Managing Risks

January 25, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam) Representative Terry Connorton discusses one aspect of Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM): dealing with distractions and interruptions, two hazards that one needs to manage whenever walking, driving a vehicle or flying a plane.

Berube will cite some statistics on distracted driving and discuss how distraction led to the loss of an airliner. He’ll also cover about interruptions –– a type of distraction that can be a significant hazard when it occurs in a critical operational phase. The presentation will feature suggestions and best practices for dealing with distractions and interruptions.
