ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Flight Safety Foundation has scheduled a free, two-day workshop in Manila on Aug. 9–10 to discuss how the Foundation sees the world of aviation safety and how methods of improving safety have changed. The workshop will be held at the Manila Marriott Hotel as part of the Foundation’s Global Safety Information Project (GSIP).
“Our GSIP research has resulted in a comprehensive collection of common risk management tools,” said Mark Millam, the Foundation’s vice president, technical, and GSIP project leader. “Now we are putting together a workshop in Manilla to discuss GSIP and what we’ve learned with industry stakeholders.”
The workshop is targeted at aviation safety professionals who are looking for the best ways to improve the safety performance of their organizations. At the same time, the Foundation also wants to learn about the challenges faced by operators and other aviation stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region. “Input we receive at this workshop and similar events will help us as we develop toolkits that describe the best practices in safety risk management,” Millam said.
“Organizations all over the world are investing in proactive and predictive risk management. Together, we must learn all we can from the threats we face separately and from the threats that are common to all of us. We also must know the strength of the barriers our individual organizations put in place to mitigate against these threats, and the strength of barriers established by others in the industry,” he said.
Workshop participants will walk away with definite ideas about what can be accomplished within their organizations and about what they should expect from others in the industry so that all of us can continue to work toward improving safety.
