Singapore aviation sector commits to uphold highest safety standards as air travel recovers
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) launched the “Charter for a Strong and Positive Safety Culture in Singapore” at the annual Aviation Safety Forum
held at the Pan Pacific Hotel.
The “Charter for a Strong and Positive Safety Culture in Singapore” is the first ever Safety Charter for the Singapore aviation sector. Recognising various safety related
challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Charter expresses the shared commitment by leaders in the sector to jointly uphold safety standards and strengthen safety culture in their respective organisations as air travel recovers.
Signatories of the Charter pledge to:
- Uphold safety as a key priority and core value
- Foster a strong and positive safety culture
- Broaden and strengthen safety promotion, including in collaboration with other organisations
- Encourage voluntary reporting of safety hazards, unsafe practices, and safety errors, and including self-disclosure of mistakes, slips, and lapses
- Promote confidentiality and protection from punitive action for selfdisclosure of safety lapses and mistakes, while not tolerating conduct that constitutes gross negligence, wilful misconduct or criminal activity
- Contribute towards strengthening the collective aviation safety culture in Singapore
