At Cathay Pacific, we strive to maintain the highest levels of safety and always put safety first.

At Cathay Pacific, we have a longstanding and clear focus on safety that is embeded in the organisation. Our goal is to manage the risks of the operation to As Low As Reasonably Practical (ALARP) in order to allow the company to pursue and maintain its commercial activities in a sustainable way.

Our Safety Policy, signed by the Chief Executive, clearly articulates this commitment by stating that “safety is our number-one priority” and that we are “fully committed to providing a safe operational and working environment” for all our passengers and staff. It goes on to state that “ultimate accountability rests with me as Chief Executive. However, responsibility for safety lies with each and every one of us in the airline”.

We have well-developed and deeply-embedded proactive safety systems to ensure that we can deliver the results. Developments made in 2014 will ensure that we live up to these exacting standards.

“If we don’t know where the risks lie, we can’t mitigate them effectively.”
