If you were asked to conceptualize the variable airline safety,

(a) What would be your answer?

This assessment then reveals monitoring and evaluation standards as well as risk management systems that would strengthen the safety of flight operations.

Reference:
BASI. (1996). Proactively monitoring airline safety performance: Identifying needed defences in the civil aviation transport environment and an evaluation of the BASI-Indicate safety program.

(b) How would you operationalize airline safety? You may either come up with a better conceptualization and operational definition of airline safety or you can critique those of your classmates who have already proposed their conceptualization and operational definitions of the term.

Effective operationalizing of airline safety foundationally means that the upper-level management understands, implements, and enforces the effective tools or ...
