Joe Hawkins, an assistant professor at Middle Tennessee State University, is asking for the assistance of aircraft maintenance professionals with a research project and to help distribute a survey to characterize the frequency and severity of fatigue experienced by aircraft maintenance Technicians across the country. The web-based study will also attempt to identify and examine the effectiveness of individual and managerial efforts to prevent fatigue and reduce errors.
The questionnaire is anonymous and should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. There are no personally identifiable or employment features in the survey, other than age, gender, certificates held and years of experience. The survey collector does not record IP addresses, and all completed surveys will remain strictly private and absolutely confidential and shall only be used for the purposes of this study.
In order to maximize the impact of the study, please feel free to forward this news item with the survey link to fellow technicians. Hawkins values your input and suggestions, so please do not hesitate to share your thoughts and ideals, particularly if you know any additional avenues or contacts he may use to expand the influence of this study.
