Safety Culture Discussion Cards - Complete Collection

Safety Culture Discussion Cards - Complete Collection


The EUROCONTROL Safety Culture Discussion Cards are a practical resource to aid real discussion about safety culture by any person or team within any organisation, including staff and managers in air navigation service providers. The cards use the same concepts as the EUROCONTROL survey methodology, though everyday language is used to make the cards completely accessible. The cards can be used without the need for external support.

You can download the cards as a PDF file in different languages for Edition 1 and Edition 2 by selecting one of the following versions:
