Boeing to sharpen safety focus after Max groundingsBoeing Co. said Monday it has created a new safety unit to work across departments and shore up "all aspects of product safety" in the aftermath of two fatal crashes less than five months apart and the grounding of its 737 Max, the plane involved in the accidents. The new product and services safety unit will "unify safety-related responsibilities," the company said in a statement. "The organization is responsible for reviewing all aspects of product safety, including investigating cases of undue pressure and anonymous product and service safety concerns raised by employees," Boeing said. The company also said all of its engineers will report directly to Chief Engineer Greg Hyslop. The realignment "will help strengthen engineering expertise," Boeing said. The company also mentioned an anonymous reporting system, which has been "encouraging employees to bring forward potential safety issues" that would be reviewed by the new safety unit, and enhancements in flight simulation and computing to increase testing of "a wide range of scenarios, resulting in improved product safety." Boeing did not address the 737 Max grounding directly or speak of any timelines for a return to service, but said that over the past several weeks its software engineers have run the equivalent of flying 45 years on the 737 Max. The fleet has been grounded since March, and federal officials said last week
