KUALA LUMPUR – The International Air Transport Association (IATA) launched the IATA Aviation Safety Culture (I-ASC) survey to support airlines in the implementation of safety management systems and building a strong safety culture.
The I-ASC survey is a solution aimed at addressing the industry’s need to continuously improve safety culture, using a standardised methodology and key performance indicators (KPIs), whereby airlines could benchmark their safety culture against their peers across the industry using comparable KPIs.
In a statement, IATA said the survey was developed in collaboration with Cranfield University (UK) and other key aviation stakeholders, in compliance with the recent upgrade in standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
IATA Senior Vice-President, Safety and Flight Operations Gilberto Lopez Meyer said the I-ASC would enable airlines to benchmark their performance on safety culture.
“In doing so, it feeds into the important process of continuous improvement that has helped to make flying the safest form of long-distance travel,” he added. – BERNAMA
