Open and fair reporting philosophy

Intermittent human and mechanical failures culminating in safety incidents occur from time to time. Collecting information on incidents and, where necessary, analysing causes, allows problems to be identified which, when resolved, can prevent future errors and incidents.

To support occurrence reporting, it is vital to have an effective data collecting system and, in addition, an open and fair culture where those who report are supported and not punished. Research has revealed that where this culture has been introduced, large numbers of incidents are identified and solutions implemented that improve the safety outcomes for the whole organisation can be achieved.

RAAus operates an open and fair reporting culture and believe that educating our members provides better outcomes that punishing them.

Please report all occurrences. We can all learn from your experiences.
