Can we predict safety culture?
Safety culture is broadly recognized as important for Air Traffic Management and various studies have addressed its characterization and assessment. Nevertheless, relations between safety culture and formal and informal organizational structures and processes are yet not well understood. We aim to improve the understanding of these relations by agent-based organizational modeling and thus provide a way for structured improvement of safety culture. This paper presents the key elements, results and validation of an agent-based organizational model for a particular Air Navigation Service Provider. Categories and Subject Descriptors I.6.4 [Simulation and Modeling]: Model Validation and Analysis General Terms Design, Human Factors, Verification. Keywords Safety culture, agent-based organizational modeling, social simulation, model analysis, model validation.
