The objective of the study described in this paper is to define safety metrics that are based on the utilisation of resources. The background of this research is a specific need of the aviation industry where small and medium-sized enterprises lack large amounts of safety-related data to measure and demonstrate their safety performance proactively. The research department of the Aviation Academy has initiated a 4-year study, which will test the possibility to develop new safety indicators that… 



Results from Surveys about Existing Aviation Safety Metrics

The research phases are: examination of validity of current safety metrics, exploration of new suitable safety metrics based on existing and alternative models and approaches to safety, generation and validation of a short list of suitableSafety metrics, and translation of this knowledge into a web-based dashboard for the industry.
