Bibliographic information Dec. 1998, Vol.30, No.3, p.275-295. Illus. 38 ref.

Abstract A new airline safety programme called INDICATE (Identifying Needed Defences In the Civil Aviation Transport Environment) was applied in one of the operational bases of an Australian regional airline. Results suggest that the programme can have a positive influence on airline safety performance, specifically, improving staff confidence in how safety is managed; increasing staff willingness to report safety hazards and incidents; improving organizational safety culture; and reducing staff perceptions of the severity and likelihood of safety hazards occurring within the airline. The success has resulted in a number of Australian and international airlines adopting the programme. Topics: air transport; attitude towards accidents; disobeying safety instructions; hazard evaluation; human behaviour; information of personnel; programme evaluation; risk awareness; role of management; safety consciousness; safety officers; safety programmes.
