Hello All,

United Kingdom's Confidential Reporting Programme (CHIRP)
The objective of the United States air transport Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) is to enhance aviation safety through the prevention of accidents and incidents. Its focus is to encourage voluntary reporting of safety issues and events that come to the attention of air carrier and repair station employees of certain certificate holders. Under ASAP, safety issues are not resolved through punishment or discipline. See AC 120-66B
The United Kingdom for some time has implemented a similar voluntary reporting system entitled The Confidential Reporting Programme for Aviation and Maritime (CHIRP)

The aim of CHIRP is to contribute to the enhancement of aviation safety in the UK and maritime safety worldwide, by providing a totally independent confidential (not anonymous) reporting system for all individuals employed in or associated with these industries.
The reports have been dis-identified to protect the identity of the reporters, airports and airlines. The aim is to share information, lessons learned and good practice without embarrassing anyone in public.

I believe we may benefit from reading the CHIRP reports and sharing them with your crewmembers.
