ICAO: worldwide series of Safety Management Symposiums in Singapore
These events are helping States to make progress in their transitions
Consistent with one of the key objectives of its Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) continued its worldwide series of Regional Safety Management Symposiums and Workshops in Singapore yesterday, promoting the use of risk-based aviation safety approaches by ICAO Member States.
To be conducted over the next four days at the Singapore Aviation Academy, the regional event will focus on supporting Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Middle Eastern (MID) ICAO States and will be followed next month by the final event in the series in Kigali, Rwanda.
This latest series of safety management events are helping States to make progress in their transitions from reactive to predictive safety analysis and planning, to raise awareness on key safety management concepts among their aviation leaders, and to discuss the newest guidance contained in ICAO’s soon-to-be-released 4th Edition of its Safety Management Manual (Doc 9859), including the benefits expected from its companion on-line information and sharing platform.
