STATE SAFETY PROGRAMS PRACTICAL WORKSHOP
Kigali, Rwanda 12 September – FREE for a maximum of 15 paid delegates to the Safety in African Aviation conference
Improved safety performance to help a State’s aviation industry mature, supporting future economic growth and a State’s prosperity.
A collaborative approach between the State and industry has been key to successfully identify areas of improvement.
An SSP becomes the bridge that closes a gap between the safety processes at the civil aviation oversight authority and the safety processes of the industry.
But it is not always easy to find the right formula to construct that bridge. How do you create an environment where change is perceived essential to achieve improvements in safety performance and compliance with ICAO Annex 19?
Get practical guidance on key elements of an SSP including a State’s regulation for an SSP, establishment of acceptable levels of safety performance, SSP implementation planning, working with the industry & identifying safety threats
Who must attend?
Senior representatives from Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA) responsible for the implementation of safety programmes (SSP)
Representatives working on oversight of safety management systems for aircraft operations, air traffic services, maintenance of aircraft and aerodrome operations
Industry members (service providers)
For registration, complete and return the attached registration form and submit a nomination form from your employer.
