The Holy Grail of Aviation: Risk, Safety and Security

Item Type Book Section
Abstract Risk, safety and security are vital structural conditions to conduct safe and smooth air transportation. The concept of risk is multidimensional and its perception differs among passengers. To ensure the safety and security in aviation, measures are set up on a global, regional and local scale. The chapter presents new approaches in the aviation system that manage risk, safety and security. On a regulatory level, safety management systems (SMS) are mandated by ICAO for all players within the aviation industry. However, a SMS needs to be accompanied by a safety culture that embraces the values needed for the SMS to succeed in identifying and rectifying problems. Therefore, important aspects surrounding an encouraging safety culture need to be considered.
