"More than 30% of aircraft accidents from 1997 through 2001 were caused at least in part by maintenance mistakes."

USA TODAY - March 2, 2004  

To combat this trend, regulatory agencies around the world have implemented requirements for error prevention training. ICAO, EASA and Transport Canada are just a few agencies that have mandated human factors training as an error prevention strategy.

Aviation accident reports often refer to aircraft maintenance departments as contributing links in the chain of events that lead to an aviation incident. An in-depth review of accident reports reveals that a series of human errors (known as a chain of events) was allowed to form until the accident occurred. In some cases, a specific maintenance / flight crew error itself was the primary cause of the accident, whereas in others, the maintenance / flight crew oversight was just one link in the chain of events that lead to the accident.

If we can break the chain of events, the accident likely will not happen.
