Safety Performance Indicators

Safety performance indicators (SPIs) are essential to evaluating the success of an aviation organization’s safety management efforts, according to a speaker at Flight Safety Foundation’s 63rd annual Business Aviation Safety Summit (BASS), held in May in Chicago. And separate research shows significant variability in how individuals and organizations across the industry define and use SPIs and safety performance targets (SPTs).

Flight Safety Foundation also recognizes the importance of SPIs to safety management systems (SMS) and to monitoring an organization’s safety performance.

As a result of its GSIP findings to date, the Foundation has developed a second SPI survey to facilitate the collection of additional information on current safety performance monitoring practices. The intent of the survey is to gain a deeper understanding of how the international aviation industry monitors safety performance, specifically how organizations identify, monitor and update SPIs and SPTs, and tools and techniques employed for collecting, analyzing and sharing safety performance information
