This is done by removing hazards, reducing the probability of accidents and minimizing the severity of accident consequences.</p> <p>This is an abstract of a study paper that takes the above into consideration, regarding aircraft accidents and injuries in Namibia.</p> <p>Aviation has traditionally been one of the most important transport sectors in the Namibian economy. This is primarily because the country consists of vast but breathtakingly beautiful wilderness and deserts that are sparsely inhabited and more easily accessible by air than by road.</p> <p>With over 500 civil registered aircraft, over 930 pilots, and over 70 aircraft operators frequently servicing the tourism, business &nbsp;postal, mining, farming and other sectors it is not difficult to see that aircraft accident and injury prevention is a major concern in the country.</p> <p>A systematic approach toward identification, categorisation and remedy of aircraft accidents and incidents has therefore been developed in Namibia that conforms to internationally accepted standards and practices. This has been done by giving due consideration to the level of&nbsp; training given to aviation personnel, the type of aircraft operated in Namibia and the unique environment in which aviation activities are carried out within the country.</p> <p>The purpose of this study was to assess the occupational ergonomics of aircraft accident and injury prevention in Namibia with particular regard to the following areas:</p> <ul> <li>A detailed analysis on the number of aircraft accidents and incident (occurrences) taking place in Namibia and their socio-economic consequences.</li> <li>A statistical research of these occurrences vis-à-vis the size of the aviation industry in Namibia.</li> <li>A classification of these occurrences by type in technical and ergonomic terms.</li> <li>A provision of the hazard and risk assessment process (by means of an example) to prevent further occurrences taking place in Namibia.</li> </ul> 2018-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://jiaats.com/ojs31/index.php/ssh/article/view/913 TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD’S EARLY EFFORTS TO DEMOLISH DATO’ SRI MOHD NAJIB RAZAK AS A PRIME MINISTER 2018-12-05T17:25:41+00:00 Nik Mawardi Mohamed no-reply@jiaats.com Kamarul Zaman Yusoff no-reply@jiaats.com Rusdi Omar no-reply@jiaats.com <p>The defeat of the Barisan Nasional (BN) Party in the hands of Pakatan Harapan (PH) Party in the 14th General Election (GE 14) Malaysia shocked many parties, both BN leaders and their own PH or political observers. This is because of the 3M factor, which is machinery, money and media, owned by BN, a split factor in the opposition pact that led to a three-cornered fight between BN, PH and Gagasan Sejahtera (GH) seen dominated by the Democratic Action Party (DAP) to create a perception that it has no Malay and Islamic agenda. It acknowledges that the three factors are the reasons why BN leaders and politics observers expect BN to be able to defend their win in GE 14 despite BN's chairman Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Razak being swept away by 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). However, the opposition pact's opposition soon changed when former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad left United Malays National Organization Party (UMNO) to set up a new Malay party called Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (BERSATU) Party, bringing BERSATU to PH, and even appointed as chairman of PH and the Prime Minister. This study saw the initial efforts used by Dr Mahathir to overthrow Najib and why this initial attempt failed to push Dr Mahathir out of UMNO to establish BERSATU and led him to PH.</p> 2018-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
