The first ICAO European Aviation System Planning Group (EASPG) is currently being held in Paris, France. Our EVP Europe, Tom Laursen, presented a joint IFATCA-IFALPA paper on the effects of criminalisation of incidents in the context of Safety Culture. The paper and its conclusions were supported by many Sates representatives and the meeting plans to adapt the detailed conclusions into firm recommendations.
The ICAO EUR office also suggested that they should start workshops on this. It’s another important initiative taken by IFALPA and IFATCA to try to advance Just Culture in aviation as a means to improve safety.
