“Safety Culture…Continuous Nurturing Required”
Culture is to organizations what personality is to individuals—every person has one and every organization has one. Whether that culture is supportive or stifling, transparent or guarded, inclusive or selective, it represents the way an organization behaves. In aviation, a safety culture is more specific than organizational culture because all aspects of culture (values, beliefs, behaviors, standard operating procedures) are examined through the lens of safety.
Aviation expert, Dr. James Reason said, “If you are convinced that your organization has a good safety culture, you are almost certainly mistaken… A safety culture is something that is strived for but rarely attained – the process is more important than the product.”
Just like in a chemistry lab a “culture” grows given the conditions of its environment. In this interactive session we will explore the environment required to continuously nurture a strong safety culture. Prior to the Safety Stand Down, participants will be asked to complete a Safety Culture Survey. The results of that survey will help to establish the foundation for the session. Using the Safety Culture Model below, the group’s collective view will be discussed, assessed and challenged.
Proactive approaches to reduce human fatigue in aviation operations
Dr. Mollicone will present an overview of biological factors that contribute to fatigue in a context relevant to aviation operations. He will discuss leading edge tools and bio-mathematical fatigue models that can be used to make better schedules, and aid in the selection of personalized fatigue mitigation approaches. He will discuss fatigue risk and proactive approaches to reduce fatigue, targeting three benefits: (1) reducing on-the job fatigue; (2) reducing potential negative health impacts of fatigue; (3) reducing the risk of automobile accidents when driving home after a flight assignment.
