Aviators to discuss pilot fatigue this weekend

Posted: September 13, 2012 - 12:06am

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Alaska Pacific Office is inviting small plane operators to join a discussion on the topic of pilot fatigue.

“This research is intended to find out if fatigue is an issue with the smaller operators around Alaska,” Ted Teske spokesperson for NIOSH said in an email. The organization has already conducted pilot interviews in Bethel and Anchorage. “We wanted to get the perspective of aviators in Southeast Alaska as well.”

Teske said he and two other NIOSH staff plan to visit Juneau to discuss pilot fatigue with Southeast’s small plane aviators (Part 135 operator), Friday and Saturday.

Pilots are asked to share experiences and methods of preventing fatigue during a voluntary one-hour recorded discussion. The institute said it does not keep record of employee names or company names.

NIOSH tries to reduce work-related illnesses, injuries and fatalities through research and prevention efforts, according to the institute.

Interested pilots can contact Mary O’Connor at 229-6885 for times and location.
