Just Culture

What is Just Culture?
Just Culture is a culture in which front line operators or others are not punished for actions, omissions or decisions taken by them that are commensurate with their experience and training, but where gross negligence, willful violations and destructive acts are not tolerated. [Regulation (EU) 376/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council]

We learn from mistakes, but not looking for faults!”
