FAA Tries to Stop Under-Reporting of Near-Misses

CNN posted an Associate Press article on their web site that explains FAA efforts to get accurate reports of controller errors that lead to violations of minimum separation requirements.

These efforts follow earlier disclosures (2005) of under-reporting by the same FAA region (Dallas).

What do you do to encourage reporting of near-misses at your facility? Are people afraid to report near-misses? Do they cover up mistakes? Do you need to improve your near-miss program to get even more near-misses reported?

Perhaps you should attend the TapRooT® Summit?

The Summit is a great place to network and benchmark with industry leaders.

Attend the TapRooT® User Best Practices session and hear about industry leading programs to use root cause analysis to improve performance.

Attend the TapRooT® User Success Stories session and hear three TapRooT® Users describe the results of successful improvement programs.

Attend The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Rating Improvement Programs and & Incident Investigations session and participate in a evaluation/benchmarking session to evaluate your efforts and programs.

And that’s just the start. There are five outstanding Keynote Speakers and a host of other sessions.

The Summit is being held on June 25-27 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sign up now at:
