IATA introduces I-ASC Survey to enhance safety through a safety culture

Posted 21 November 2017 · Add Comment

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has launched the IATA Aviation Safety Culture (I-ASC) survey to support airlines in the implementation of Safety Management Systems (SMS) and building a strong safety culture in compliance with the recently upgraded standards and recommended practices (SARPS) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

“Safe operations are underpinned by a safety-centric culture. I-ASC enables 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,” said Gilberto Lopez Meyer, IATA’s Senior Vice President, Safety and Flight Operations.

The existence and understanding of an airline’s safety culture is a prerequisite for successful and effective SMS implementation. I-ASC assists this process with objective self-assessment, leading to understanding and action.

Virgin Australia was one of the early adopters of the I-ASC survey and Michael Chapman, Virgin Australia’s General Manager Safety Systems said: “The I-ASC survey was really useful to allow us to review our results across different departments within our own business, as well as compare ourselves against others within the industry.”
