Focus Sessions – psychological safety

Psychological safety. "About what???" I can hear some of you ask - it was also a new term for us at the Foundation. Psychological safety is all about creating an environment that encourages honesty and transparency, that allows bad news to be heard and acted upon. Our panel takes you on a journey into psychological safety: aviation wellbeing researcher Capt. Paul Cullen, humanitarian services specialist Otibho Agbareh & safety researcher Dr Robert Jan de Boer.
Refer others to this page so they can learn too! After all, we collectively own the global aviation safety record.
