Does Safety have the same importance as Finance in your boardroom?

Baines Simmons and Thomas Cook Airlines debate ROI on Safety Management at Flight Safety 2013

Keven Baines, MD and Steve Solomon, Director of Group Aviation Safety, Compliance & Security at Thomas Cook Airlines, will share the stage at this year’s Flight Safety Conference to discuss Safety from a boardroom perspective.

By debating the potential conflicts between balancing the costs of ensuring overall safety and the commercial operations of an airline, Keven and Steve will provide delegates with a lively insight into the realities of getting safety onto the boardroom agenda.

The debate is well-timed as European Air Operators seek ways of ensuring compliance with the new EU Rules for Air Operations by the October 2014 deadline. The new rules demand that the Air Operator’s boardroom engages in demonstrable safety leadership and can effectively and pro-actively manage safety performance.

Hot topics under debate will include:

  1. What conflicts do you see between safety and commercial success?
  2. What’s preventing safety being a strategic boardroom issue?
  3. Can you measure safety performance as well as you measure financial performance?
