TKA INVITES TO INCREASE THE LEVEL OF AVIATION SAFETY CULTURE
One of the main goals of the Transport Competence Agency (TKA) is to ensure flight safety and security in Lithuania. The involvement of all aviation organizations and their safety incident reporting policies is critical to achieving this goal.
“In order to understand what actions should be taken to reduce the number of incidents or accidents, we first need to understand the situation we are in now.” By analyzing and systematizing information about events that have already happened, we can identify threats to other aviation market participants and prevent them,” says TKA director Goda Bražytė-Balčiūnė.
As a result, TKA calls on everyone working in aviation to increase the level of aviation safety culture and report observed safety incidents.
When an incident is noticed, the first thing to do is to inform the colleague responsible for safety in your organization about it. Those who doubt the reporting system or culture of their workplace can report the incident directly to TKA: www.tka.lt/pranesk-apie-ivyki
“It is still a common belief that reporting an incident in an organization can result in warnings or fines – this is not true. The identity of the persons mentioned in the report is protected, and its contents are not used to accuse anyone or generally disclosed to the public – unless it is necessary to ensure aviation safety,” says the Director of TKA.
The Transport Competence Agency has prepared memos for specialists in different aviation fields – they indicate which events they are required to report by Regulation (EU) of the European Parliament and Council No. 376/2014 and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1018.
