IATA announces Safety Leadership Charter with 20 initial airlines 

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced on September 19, during the IATA World Safety and Operations Conference taking place in Hanoi, Vietnam, the launch of the IATA Safety Leadership Charter. It aims to strengthen organizational safety culture through commitment to eight key guiding principles of safety leadership. It was developed in consultation with IATA members and the broader aviation community to support industry executives in evolving a positive safety culture within their organizations. The safety leaders of the following 20 airlines are the first signatories: Air Canada Air India, Air Serbia, ANA, British Airways, Carpatair, Cathay Pacific, Delta Air Lines, Emirates Airline, Ethiopian Airlines, EVA Airways, Garuda Indonesia Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Japan Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Philippine Airlines, Qantas Group, TAROM, United Airlines, Vietnam Airlines, Xiamen Airlines. “Leadership is important. It is the strongest factor affecting security behavior. By signing the IATA Safety Leadership Charter, these industry leaders visibly demonstrate their commitment to the critical safety culture within their own airlines and the need to continually build on the work previously undertaken”, said Willie Walsh, Director General from IATA. The Safety Leadership Guiding Principles include: Leading the safety mandate through words and actions; Promote security awareness among employees, leadership team, and board; Create an atmosphere of trust where all employees feel responsible for safety and are encouraged and expected to report safety-related information; Guide the integration of security into business strategies, processes, and performance measures and create the internal capacity to manage and achieve organizational security goals; Regularly evaluate and improve the organizational Safety Culture. “Commercial aviation has benefited from more than 100 years of safety advancements that inspire us to raise the bar even higher. Aviation leaders’ commitment and drive to continually improve safety is a long-standing pillar of commercial aviation that has made flying the safest form of long-distance travel. Signing this letter honors achievements that should give everyone the greatest confidence in flying and sets a powerful and timely reminder that we can never be complacent about safety”, concludes Nick Careen, senior vice president of operations, safety, and security at IATA. – https://aeroin.net/com-20-companhias-aereas-iniciais-carta-de-lideranca-em-seguranca-e-anunciada-pela-iata/
