Boeing is hoping to drive some reforms in order to improve safety. It is trying to overcome the damage that happened after its marquee 737 MAX jets grounded. The decision took place after these carriers met with accidents where 346 passengers lost their lives. Boeing is working hard to develop a new safety institution within the organization. Hence, it is going to help Boeing take care of all safety parameters so that it is no longer depending on outside businesses. According to reports, the internal institution was facing tremendous pressure from Boeing engineers who were trying to reduce safety testing. They were doing so to keep manufacturing prices low.
To limit internal pressure, Boeing is appointing a new Vice president who will be reporting directly to management. It will also be overlooking all safety concerns. Hence, this new institution will create awareness about safety norms. It will also be taking care of new cases of safety for carriers. The institution is appointing Edmund Giambastiani as the VP. He will closely monitor all aspects of aerospace such as maintenance, manufacturing, and designing. He is going to report directly to the Boeing management. The authority formed a special committee in April after the unfortunate accidents of Boeing flights. Hence, this committee led to the development of these new rules to take care of Boeing’s safety analysis.
Giambastiani insisted in a press statement that this new changes in safety parameters were very much needed. Hence, the committee will be focusing on developing new protocols to check the safety of all Boeing carriers. Boeing also hired other industry experts to check the structure of the committee. These highly experienced industry experts also suggested that Boeing has delayed in setting up the committee.
