Arvidsson, Marcus LU ; Johansson, Curt R LU ; Ek, Åsa LU and Akselsson, Roland LU (2003) The XVth Triennial Congress of the International Ergonomics Association In Ergonomics in the digital age 5(Safety I). p.368-371
Abstract
In a joint project – Human Factors in ANS, HUFA - between the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration and Lund University the aim is to find out how a new team-based organization and the introduction of a new air traffic control system will affect safety culture and psychosocial working environment by changes in organizational climate, team climate and leadership. All in all, four studies will be conducted, before and after the system introduction, involving the two air traffic control centers (ATCC) in Malmö and Stockholm as well as the air navigation services (ANS) division in Norrköping. This paper focus on findings from the first study concerning the team climate and the safety culture. The results show an overall positive picture... (More)

All in all, four studies will be conducted, before and after the system introduction, involving the two air traffic control centers (ATCC) in Malmö and Stockholm as well as the air navigation services (ANS) division in Norrköping. This paper focus on findings from the first study concerning the team climate and the safety culture. The results show an overall positive picture concerning the safety culture at all three units. The team climate is assessed as average at the two ATCCs and just above at the ANS-division. No clear patterns could be found that can explain if and how the safety culture and the team climate are related. (Less)
