Locus of Control, Safety Attitudes and Involvement in Hazardous Events in Indian ArmyAviators

Locus of Control, Safety Attitudes and Involvement in Hazardous Events in Indian ArmyAviators Locus of control (LOC), safety attitudes, and involvement in hazardous events were studied in205 Indian Army aviators using a questionnaire-based method. A positive correlation was foundbetween external LOC and involvement in hazardous events. Higher impulsivity and anxiety, anddecreased self-confidence, safety orientation, and denial were associated with a greater number ofhazardous events. Higher external LOC was associated with higher impulsivity, anxiety, and weatheranxiety and with lower self-confidence, safety orientation, and denial. Internal LOC was associatedwith increased self-confidence, safety orientation, and denial. Hazardous events and self-confidencewere higher in those involved in accidents than those not involved in accidents. Future researchneeds to address whether training can effectively modify LOC and negative attitudes, and whetherthis would cause a reduction in, and better management of, human errors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aviation Psychology and Applied Human Factors American Psychological Association

Abstract

Locus of control (LOC), safety attitudes, and involvement in hazardous events were studied in205 Indian Army aviators using a questionnaire-based method. A positive correlation was foundbetween external LOC and involvement in hazardous events. Higher impulsivity and anxiety, anddecreased self-confidence, safety orientation, and denial were associated with a greater number ofhazardous events. Higher external LOC was associated with higher impulsivity, anxiety, and weatheranxiety and with lower self-confidence, safety orientation, and denial. Internal LOC was associatedwith increased self-confidence, safety orientation, and denial. Hazardous events and self-confidencewere higher in those involved in accidents than those not involved in accidents. Future researchneeds to address whether training can effectively modify LOC and negative attitudes, and whetherthis would cause a reduction in, and better management of, human errors.
