Back to Basics Flight Safety Foundation presentation 2017, Singapore

Back to basics is about revisiting the foundation. The need for conceptual knowledge and risk perception. We are able to have better understanding of the situation based on our knowledge and perception. The new age method of gamification help in learning by motivating the learner intrinsically. The learner initiative brings about a deeper understanding and higher order thinking skill.

Fixing the cause by implementing effective safety culture

Establishing a safety culture in the organization is the most effective means of safety assurance in the long term. Humans play a vital role in the running of the processes and are also the cause of most errors. There are a number of reasons for both errors and violations. Instead of increasing controls in terms of engineering controls and SOP’s, it is beneficial for the organization to implement a generative safety culture, wherein safety becomes a way of life and there is little oversight or control required. Losses are prevented at every stage and hazards are actively identified and risk mitigated.
