What is Safety in aviation?

Safety in Aviation is the most important operating & human factor there is. It is also a regulatory requirement to follow safety laws in support of your AOC. The objective of a safety department is to minimize the risk of in flight or on ground incidents and accidents. Risk Management and mitigation of risk issues is done through good communication, clear procedures as well as constant reviewing of existing procedures, good training, good reporting and auditing and most of all through the creation of a non-punitive safety company culture that encourages safety initiatives.

How does AJA ensure the Safety Culture prevails

For the company?
  • Think about your action and decisions and to speak up when you have any concerns.
  • Use the reporting systems set up by the safety sections.
  • Furthermore, try to look beyond your immediate range of knowledge/job specification and contribute possible solutions. The degree to which this happens depends to a large extent on our company culture. A culture in AJA which we are driving towards being non-punitive. I.e. we are all human and make mistakes, put your hand up when you have and let others learn. You will not be punished.
