procedures. Often they may be seen as unnecessary, and if there have been no accidents or incidents the increased safety will have little or no value to those who have
to implement the changes. If those who benefit are different stakeholders from those whop implement the changes this can also increase the barriers to change. The airline industry is
likely any other, changes can be resisted. In this industry major changes, as seen with the changes as a result of the terrorist attacks may be accepted as necessary, there
is a clear understanding of why the change is needed and the benefit of the change. However, smaller changes are more likely to meet with resistance, especially in an industry
where there has already be a high level of change and the staff may be feeling fatigue from the change. If they feel there is no immediate personal benefit or
