This Module provides an introduction to the topic of aviation safety and
aviation security and an overview of how these concepts impacts on
organisations and cultures. The importance of understanding what is
meant by safety and a systems approach to safety management is
considered from a perspective of those working in the aviation industry.
The aviation industry is composed of a series of overlapping
operational areas that safety and security personnel must protect.
Aviation is an effective and efficient mode of transportation affecting
the whole world. As such, aviation is a target that both terrorists and
criminals highly desire. Therefore, each operational area must be
protected accordingly as to prevent any terrorist or criminal behaviour.
