Safety is the number one priority in Aviation and it has long been recognized that a Safety Management System (SMS) cannot be effective without an appropriate safety culture. The Civil Air Navigation Service Organisation (CANSO, 2009) in line with international regulatory requirements has defined safety culture as the ‘enabler that integrates the various SMS elements into a coherent system.’ This paper reports findings and recommendations following a pilot implementation of a ‘ready-to-go’ safety culture survey developed by CANSO at a local Air Navigation Service Provider. In addition correlations with related concepts such as resilience, organisational citizenship behavior as well as recovery and stress are investigated. The results will be used to develop a shorter and improved version of the survey including related concepts.
