This blog was started at the behest of colleagues who requested for more info on Human Error. We explored various types of Human Errors, the telltale signs of error prone conditions and how to have a degree of control over Human Error in our organizations. There is absolutely no way of eliminating Human Errors. We can at best learn to recognize and build resilience to reduce the risk of single error leading to a disaster. It can get very low, but it will never reach zero!
Espero que se elija para leer. Espero que voy a publicar edición Italiano también en 2015.
El premio concedido por FSF, lo es al reconocer el CEO de FSF, Jon Beaty, que en su libro Kohli, además lanza consistentes áreas de mejora para la prevención de futuros accidentes, objeto este único del estudio de la siniestralidad desde el punto de vista técnico. El premio Brownlow es un reconocimiento a las contribuciones significativas a la seguridad en la aviación por parte de un periodista o de una publicación en el mundo.
“Capt. Kohli focused his book on understanding and explaining the causal factors of the crash, rather than sensationalizing it or assigning blame. He highlighted areas of improvement in hopes of preventing the next accident and for these reasons, it is a privilege to present him with the Brownlow award.” Mr. Jon Beatty, President and CEO, Flight Safety Foundation.
"'Into Oblivion' is a well written, educational and informative book regarding the disappearance of #MH370. It addresses the facts and sequence of events, explains the technical terms and then gives a methodical overview of the many theories that are swirling around the mystery. 'Into Oblivion' is a thought provoking yet respectful book and highly recommended!"Ms. Jennie Cullen, CreateSpace customer.
"From the very beginning it is apparent there has been extensive research into writing this book. The book covers a lot of ground in human factors, and it does so with a laser focus on one of the most recent accidents in Indian aviation history. This book is a must read for all aviation professionals, enthusiasts, managers, regulators and, above all, bureaucrats. The author also highlights the role of management of safety by aviation operators by telling the story of obscure accidents which are lost in the noise of the bigger ones across the world" - Captain B Thomas - Part 135 Pilot, USA.
"A very interesting book that provides an accurate summary of the events that occurred during the mysterious flight MH370. The author explains important concepts of physics,aviation and communication satellites in a very descriptive way which helps understanding facts from hypothesis created by people and media worldwide. The book shows how much the tabloids and TV news distorted the events for their TRPs and sales. As the title says this tragedy should never be forgotten." Ms. Piedad Salomon, Amazon customer.

Some reader reviews
"Easy and exciting to read, this book shows how disasters could have been easily avoided if all professionals along the line had fulfilled their duties. It is a must to anyone who has any level of responsibility in a high-risk industry and doesn't want to just wait for disaster to happen." Mr. Cobut Thierry, General Manager AGIP Oil Ecuador.
"I really enjoyed the book and your insights to the accidents. I liked your comparison to Dryden Air Ontario. When TC first mandated Human Factors training for Engineers in Canada that accident was a core study case ... What I thought was excellent in the book was that you highlighted both the similarities to the accident causal factors but the differences in the follow up to the event. The compassion of a management system of an airline to soccer team was great. It highlights the “blame the pilot” to the same likeness as blaming the goal tender. Most people can watch a match and see where errors are being made including off of the pitch. Yet with aviation there is still a tendency to blame the pilot. Once again Sam great job." Robert Cavers, Regional Aviation Adviser, Eni Australia Limited.
"I found the book of Captain Kohli very interesting, well written and above all extremely useful for everyone involved in safety-critical systems." -Captain Antonio Chialastri, Human Factors Researcher, Italy.
