Safety Culture represents the priority given to safety at all levels in the organisation, and reflects the real commitment to safety.
Safety Culture is seen as fundamental for good safety performance in a number of industries and ATM is no exception. Since Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster in 1986 where “Safety Culture” term was first applied, the use of the Safety Culture concept has spread to other industries including Oil and Gas, Chemical, Rail, Aviation, Medical, and Air Traffic Management (ATM), where it has recently been applied to at least partly explain both the Uberlingen and Milan Linate accidents.
Air Traffic Management (ATM) is a very safe industry - both in terms of quantitative measures such as safety occurrence (accident and incident) rates, and qualitative measures such as the perceptions of the travelling public. Reason (2000) proposed that an organisation’s Safety Culture takes on a profound significance at the point where accident rates reach a “plateau”, i.e.
Thus, the ATM system needs to understand how a negative Safety Culture can be a threat, and how it can be managed. Researchers and practitioners have proposed numerous Safety Culture models in recent years. Informed: Managers know what is going on in their organisation and the workforce is willing to report their own errors and near misses. Reporting: The organisation encourages employees to divulge information about all safety hazards that they encounter. Just: The organisation has a ’just and fair' approach to errors, but requires individuals to be accountable and applies appropriate penalties to unacceptable actions (violations). Flexible: Such organisations reflect changes in demand, providing both high tempo and routine modes of operation.
Learning: Organisations are ready to learn and improve, and have the will to implement reforms when required.
This will require behaviour changes at all levels of the organisation, not just at the workplace (behaviour modification is unlikely to be successful unless the job environment and organisational factors are also changed).

Many Boomers are in senior or even management roles but are increasingly considering retirement or part-time work, if they can afford it.
Workers in their “prime” – Generation X – should be taking over key roles as Boomers move on, but there are simply not enough of them.
This leaves a gap in the most vulnerable age range for management and leadership positions in organizations – employees in their 30’s and 40’s in their peak working years.  For the most part, Generation Y is willing but not always ready to move into management and leadership positions vacated by Boomers – so who will take the reins?

However, the industry is currently expanding to cope with increased levels of traffic and this is coupled with fundamental objective to improve further its safety performance. Just as the focus in safety occurrence investigation has moved from operator error to systemic failure in recent years, the concept of Safety Culture considers the critical importance of management and individual actions regarding safety, based on their collective values, beliefs and behaviour. The model presented below includes several dimensions on which an organisation’s Safety Culture can be defined and evaluated.
We are experiencing tremendous growth in the older worker segment, many of whom hope to retire or work part-time within the next few years. However, many in this generation continue to work in part-time roles, in consulting, as board members, or in mentoring roles.
