Mechanisms in the Chain of Safety

Research and Operational Experiences in Aviation Psychology

Edited by Alex de Voogt, American Museum of Natural History, USA and Teresa D’Oliveira, Instituto Superior de Psicologia Aplicada, Portugal

Contemporary approaches to aviation safety show a dynamic endeavor to identify a variety of components that minimize the emergence of adverse situations. In this process there has always been a strong interrelation between these components and it allows us to talk about a chain of safety. This volume presents the most recent efforts in this chain of safety streaming from both the industry and academia, as well as the future challenges for operational settings.
