Abstract: The study set out to find the human factors influencing aviation safety in Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul 145. The research objectives were to establish the extent to which personal professional qualifications, aviation infrastructure and technical guidance material influence human factors in Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul 145. The target population of the study was 30 employees of Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul 145. A census approach was used as the researcher was interested in collecting data from every member of the target population. The questionnaire was constructed using structured and unstructured questions. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used as a tool of evaluation in the data analysis. A set of 27 questions consisted of 3 subsets (Personnel Qualified and Aviation Safety, Infrastructure on Aviation Safety and Technical Guidance Material (TGM) on Aviation Safety) of variables have been used to meet the research objectives respectively. The study concludes that personnel professional qualifications are a major contributor to aviation safety because the aviation industry is technical based with rapidly changing technologies, applications and emerging issues. Recruitment and retention policies need to be prioritized in order to attract the appropriate personnel based on the organization needs. The overall infrastructure Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul 145 is wanting and hence has a great effect on aviation safety. The study concludes that the relevance of the existing TGMs is in line with the current practices in the aviation industry. However, recommended revisions should be implemented as soon as possible.
