All organizations reinforce thousands of assumptions on a daily basis, many of these are intentional but even more are unintentional. The NATS approach to safety culture aims to understand what assumptions are shaping an organizations behaviour. The experience of managing huge quantities of air traffic in complex and congested airspace has given NATS an armoury of knowledge and advice that we needed to transform into easily digestible content.
We created a native app that guides the user through their safety culture and provides bespoke content to help implement change. The Safety Culture app provides a free and easy way to complete a self-assessment. On completion, a free report is automatically generated and produces a foundation for organizations to commit to continuous safety improvement.
