European Commission funds new survey on safety in aviation

As part of the ‘Future Sky Safety’ initiative, the European Commission has funded The London School of Economics and EUROCONTROL to explore safety across the air transport system.

Safety culture refers to the norms, values and practices shared by groups in relation to safety and risk. Research shows that organisations with a poor safety culture are more prone to accidents, and those with a strong safety culture are more resilient. In aviation, safety culture issues have long been identified as a major cause of their accidents.

The survey is the first ever European-wide safety culture survey for commercial pilots. It examines important safety components such as incident reporting, just culture, fatigue management and management commitment to safety. It has received support from the European Cockpit Association and a huge interest from pilots, with over a 3000 responses in its first few weeks of opening.

The online survey closes on Feb 22nd and can be found at: http://bit.ly/1Pl08jW #SafetyCultureSurvey
