Safety Risk Attitudes in Commercial Aviation

Charles Short, Eric Tchouamou Njoya, Nicolas Hubbard

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The commercial aviation industry is a human-built and human-led system, and so hazards are identified, assessed and managed by people. Perceptual dissonance induces inherent subjectivity, and this has the potential to reduce the efficacy of safety risk management. Whilst perception is a key driver of risk attitudes, evidence to show the impact of their proactive management is limited. This case study aims to demonstrate the rationale for further research.
