Exploring safety culture in the military aviation context
Anthea Ashford, INM
While understanding safety culture has become an integral part of many safety management systems, considerable debate surrounding the concept remains. The contextual approach to exploring safety culture has gained interest, utilizing a combination of methods. The current study explored the meaning of safety culture and its underlying components within a military aviation organization. Qualitative analysis yielded six overall themes; these were then developed into a quantitative survey which was analyzed using components analysis to explore the underlying themes.
