Our goal is to improve safety for everyone working in the UK’s aviation industry, one report at a time. Our Aviation Programme provides an independent confidential reporting system and we focus on safety-related reports about human factors and just culture/reporting culture issues.

We understand that sharing safety concerns can be stressful. You can report your concerns to us without any repercussions or fear of being identified, and, if you are happy for us to contact them, we will follow up with the relevant organisation to ensure that necessary action is taken. 

You are in safe hands. Our team is made up of specialists with professional and technical expertise in aviation operations and human factors. Our database and system are secure and only accessible by CHIRP personnel, no companies, organisations or regulators have any access to your information or report.

We also recognise the serious impact that bullying, harassment, discrimination and victimisation (BHDV) can have. In collaboration with the CAA, we also provide an independent confidential reporting function for BHDV so they can understand how prevalent it might be in the sector.
