Asian aviation trailblazers: Leading change in safety culture – the Shafinaz Abd Wahid story

11:45 - 12:15

Shafinaz is known as a ‘safety anchor’ and a ‘wind of change’ for safety improvements among the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Community. This session will explore her personal mission to remove accident risks and how it has inspired colleagues to achieve a 91% reduction in like for like ground accidents on the way to achieving ISAGO accreditation. The presentation will examine the leadership behaviours that resonate with employees on the ramp when it comes to changing safety culture. How do we take safety from being a benign corporate pledge to a core principle of daily activity for all employees – regardless of their seniority?
