The Performance in Aviation Safety Awards provide an opportunity for you, your team and your organisation to celebrate success and be recognised as achieving performance in the field of aviation safety.

Designed to support the Baines Simmons 4th European Aviation Safety Symposium, the awards showcased the importance of moving beyond compliance to safety performance by illustrating practical examples of safety implementation and improvement from across the aviation industry.

Entries were invited to show how individuals, teams and organisations have succeeded in initiating, motivating, driving and securing the strategic, commercial and operational benefits of an organisational approach to safety performance.
