Aviation is a very safe form of transport, but accidents can be devastating. Aviation workers are experts on their industry, and they play a vital role in keeping passengers safe. In an emergency they are there to protect passengers. ETF works to ensure that all aviation workers have the training and rest needed for peak performance. We also bring workers’ perspectives to the international bodies which establish safety rules for the sector.

Workers in air traffic management are responsible for keeping thousands of people safe every day. One way to improve safety is to analyse mistakes, learn lessons and adjust procedures and processes accordingly. Therefore organisations must foster a culture in which staff know they will be treated fairly.
