FAASTeam Maintenance Safety Tip
June 2011

Training/Recurrent Training
Although you may have been working in the aviation industry for a number of years, perhaps for the same company and on familiar equipment, situations may arise where changes have occurred to company procedures, modifications have been made to equipment and/or systems, and/or there have been additions to the fleet with similar equipment.
Often we rely on our past knowledge and experience, unblemished record, or peer pressure, and continue on “business as usual.” Instead, maybe we should say “I don’t know,” stop, and get help or get training.
This may be a good time to take a moment and evaluate if you meet the training requirements needed to accomplish the task at hand. In fact, any time you start a new task ask yourself that question.

Don't let ego or peer pressure get in the way of safety!
