Title Improving the effectiveness of safety reporting systems in aviation organisations
Author(s) Jausan, M

Abstract Improving the performance of safety reporting systems is a paramount objective to provide more reliable safety information for implementing risk assessment processes. Previous researchers have identified several barriers that influence the effectiveness of reporting systems, ranging from individual factors to organisational issues. However, none of these studies has addressed the concomitant effect of the different barriers as a means of determining the overall effect on the performance of existing reporting systems. This research proposes a model that can help to determine the cumulative effect of organisational, working environment and individual factors on the performance of a safety reporting system in an aviation organisation. The model was analysed using Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) technique to examine the relationships amongst the different variables of the study. The data was collected from a survey conducted in a military aviation organisation, with the purpose of identifying the barriers to reporting in this particular organisational context. Results show that the proposed model allows to accurately quantifying the impact of the various concomitant barriers in the reporting system, providing a powerful resource to assist stakeholders in the decision-making process that is inherent to the implementation of tailored actions to improve safety performance.
