Baldwin has put together a small resource guide for business aviation flight departments to help them navigate this new environment smartly. While this is not a “go/no-go” risk assessment, it is a tool with information to consider sourced from reliable organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and many others. This guide covers topics ranging from moving crew members on commercial flights to recommendations for crew during off days. Additionally, there are many links to resources on crew and passenger protection, signs to alert the crew of infection, and disinfecting aircraft to name a few.
In this newly released Safety Culture White Paper, Jason Starke explains safety culture as an attribute of organizational culture, how organizations can evaluate their safety culture, and actions that can be taken to improve the safety culture within the organization. Some topics that are covered include what safety culture is and is not, the role safety culture plays in a healthy SMS, and methods for effectively measuring safety culture. Also discussed are some of the findings from a study involving 35 safety culture surveys administered in 2019.
