Safety Leadership: from compliance to trust

Stuart Aggs, Virgin Australia Group Chief Operations Officer, is a firm believer in delegating authority to those with the responsibility for safety. 

Ultimately, the buck stops with him, but trust is the underlying theme of his style of safety leadership.

As well, the airline is not allowing the pandemic to affect its strong commitment to a safety ethos.
