Can Safety Be Done by One Manager? I would add, that Safety is not a job that can be done by one. In fact at my pilot association we had 14
committees that dealt with some portion of the safety pie, yes 14! And we were not the company, we were just the pilot group. Safety is not something that can be done from an asset poor point of view! Safety requires a great deal of attention.
What many airlines have found is that by failing to do the safety job of prevention well, that instead they wind up doing the mishap investigation job. And what a huge waste of time and money that is!!
There has never been a mishap investigation in which I participated, where in the end the conclusion that this mishap was preventable was not reached!
