Boeing survey found 1 in 3 employees felt ‘undue pressure’ over safety approvals

“Boeing declined to comment on the survey, but a board member has said an internal review found no signs that undue pressure had compromised safety” writes Andrew Tangel for The survey, which hasn’t been reported before, wasn’t specifically focused on the Max but covered employees across a range of Boeing commercial airliner programs; it came near the end of the Max’s multiyear federal approval process.Investigators for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee looking into the design and certification of the 737 Max have received details of a three-year-old internal Boeing BA, -6.79%   survey showing roughly one in three employees who responded felt “potential undue pressure” from managers regarding safety-related approvals by federal regulators across an array of commercial planes.
