AAIB SAFETY STUDIES
This section contains AAIB Safety Studies
AAIB safety studies consider a factor or factors common to several occurrences, and are intended to support safety action where a factor is not causal to an individual occurrence or where a series of occurrences indicates a trend.
A field investigation is an independent investigation in which AAIB investigators collect, record and analyse evidence.
The process may include, attending the scene of the accident or serious incident; interviewing witnesses; reviewing documents, procedures and practices; examining aircraft wreckage or components; and analysing recorded data.
The investigation, which can take a number of months to complete, will conclude with a published report.
