The Swedish Air Navigation Services Provider (LFV ANS) are undergoing major organizational changes in order to adapt to changing demands on efficiency and technical development in air traffic control. In these change processes the foundations of the safety work can be affected and changes in the existing safety culture can be introduced. In a joint research project – Human Factors in Air Navigation Services (HUFA) – between the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration and Lund University the focus is on human and organizational factors and safety in air traffic control. The aim of the project is to study safety culture and related organizational issues in order to monitor these during the change processes. Study locations are the two main air traffic control centers and parts of the LFV ANS head office in Sweden. Using questionnaire assessments, three measurement rounds will be conducted during the course of about three years. Studies 1 and 2 are completed, where the first one has given baseline values. After 20 months, study 2 was completed in order to monitor the effect of spontaneously occurring organizational changes. This paper presents results concerning the stability of the investigated organizational climate, leadership style of team managers, psychosocial work environment, and safety culture. (Less)
