Safety Culture is a strategic asset of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) industry. The two documents in this area explain what Safety Culture is, and how to go about measuring and improving Safety Culture within an Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) organisation.
In collaboration with other agencies such as the FAA and CANSO, we have developed a strategic way forward in the Safety Culture domain, committing resources and energy to make a real difference in safety terms.
The EUROCONTROL Safety Culture Programme started as a R&D project in 2003, and went 'operational' in 2006. Our aim is to survey all EUROCONTROL Member States by end of 2014.
Thirty European States are now engaged in Safety Culture activities, aiming to evaluate and improve their own safety culture, and this includes the first attempt to conduct a FAB Safety Culture survey.
