DSC_0376Embattled aircraft manufacturer Boeing announced a series of steps it will take to bolster the company’s internal safety culture.

The move was announced by Boeing’s CEO, Dennis Muilenburg, who said he would centralize safety oversight at the company under the newly created Product and Services Safety Organization. The new group will be headed by Beth Pasztor, a veteran Boeing executive, who will report to Boeing Chief Engineer Greg Hyslop and a board-level committee that includes Muilenburg.

“Safety is at the core of who we are at Boeing, and the recent 737 MAX accidents will always weigh heavily on us,” said Muilenburg in a statement. “They have reminded us again of the importance of our work and have only intensified our commitment to continuously improve the safety of our products and services.”

The new organization will unify safety-related responsibilities that are currently spread across multiple teams and operating units.

In her new role, Pasztor will also oversee the company’s accident-investigation team and safety-review boards in addition to Boeing employees who handle aircraft certification work for the Federal Aviation Administration.
