EFFECTS OF REDUCE CREW High workload in the cabin High workload in the cabin Stress Stress Fatigue Fatigue ERRORS Low Situational Awareness Omitting to cross check/verify door arming/disarming Inadvertent slide deployment Operational Decision – crew decision that unnecessarily increase risk Leaving door disarmed after pushback has commenced Communication – failure to communicate, miscommunication or misinterpretation of pertinent information.
