RASE an anonymous safety experience exchange system by Safety Matters

 What is there was a simple platform to share our daily experiences, apprehensions, doubts etc with the world? Instead of small groups holding critical safety related information, there is a need for a pilot of a particular type or operating to an airport, to know whats bothering others around the globe with similar issue that they are facing with. Safety Matters/mindFly by Amit have created a simple to use application which is open for all to use. A few fields for data entry and a search options to retrieve data. It is anonymous and no personal or digital data is recorded. There is a approval process before the data is presented to the end users to filter out erroneous entries, malicious data and other anomalies. RASE is not a mandatory occurrence reporting platform and is just an experience sharing platform which is easy to use and can benefit others by sharing it freely.

No Human Factor experts, Investigations flawed, Policy maker cluseless about Safety management. This is the Nadir.

Aviation safety in India is truly at the Nadir with the unfortunate accident of the Air India Express B737 at Calicut on 7th Aug 2020. After 22nd May 2010 when the Air India Express B737 crashed at Mangalore, there was a thorough investigation with numerous recommendations. Unfortunately, a year down the line all was forgotten.
 
2019 monsoon saw a spate of runway excursions. Instead of determining the root cause, the regulator decided to address the symptom. They cracked the whip and suspended more than 40 pilots. A proud regulator made a statement that cracking the whip worked and there were no SOP violations in December 2019. 

Problem:
1. The policy makers have no understanding of risk analysis and safety management systems.
2. Investigations are flawed and no action is taken on the real culprits.
3. There are no human factor experts to understand why the error passes through all the barriers to end up in an accident.
