After a thorough process, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) lifted the order that suspended 737-8 and 737-9 operations for airlines under its jurisdiction. We continue to work with the FAA and other global regulators and airlines to safely return the airplane to service in their jurisdictions.

Aviation safety is a never-ending process.


Safety is the primary consideration when Boeing engineers design an airplane. In addition to meeting regulatory requirements before certification, each airplane model must meet Boeing’s time-proven design standards, which are often more stringent than regulatory requirements.

Our processes help ensure the safety of all the teammates who design and build our products, the passengers who fly on them and the people who service them.

From commercial airplanes to military aircraft and spacecraft, our commitment and approach to safety and quality extend across all of our products and services.

Our People

A painter in full safety gear.

Safety is our North Star.


Nothing is more important at Boeing than safety — in the workplace and in the products we design, build and support. The Safety Guiding Principles provide a framework to achieve the goal of zero workplace injuries — so every person who works at, or visits, a Boeing site leaves as safe and healthy as when they arrived.

Boeing’s workplace safety program, Go for Zero, is a holistic approach to preventing sickness or injuries at work and at home, stemming from the belief that every injury is preventable.

Achieving zero injuries is a constant endeavor. By continually identifying gaps and measuring progress using industry standard approaches, Boeing’s internal compliance requirements often exceed those set by government regulations.

Every employee has the responsibility to make safety and quality top priorities. Through valuing human life and well-being above all else and taking action accordingly, Boeing will continue to foster an open culture where people are empowered and encouraged to speak up about any concerns with the assurance that they will be taken seriously.
