Safety Management Survey - Stage 1 [SAF-SAS-1]

Classroom Course
Regulations 1035/2011 and 2017/373, also known as Common Requirements, identify Safety Survey as an important tool for monitoring the safety performance of ATS.  This course, consistent with the requirements of both these regulations, provides an overview of safety assurance activities and the role of safety survey within an SMS. The course then looks at a typical safety survey process, the roles and responsibilities of the various actors and the techniques available to collect survey data. The 3-day safety survey course also provides the introductory module to a three-phase training for safety surveyors. Participants to the SAF-SAS course have the possibility of returning in order to present an actual survey and participate in the critical analysis of their activities. This phase of the training will require participants to conduct a safety survey at their own location at some point during the 3 to 4 month gap between the two classroom phases. Participants wishing to complete the full three-phase training should indicate this on the booking form. Confirmation will be requested closer to the date of the first phase of training.
Important Note
Participants enrolling for the 3-day safety survey course also have the possibility of completing an actual survey and returning for a subsequent 2 day training course to present their activities. Attendees wishing to participate to all 3 phases should indicate this on the booking form and will be required to confirm prior to attendance on the initial 3-day survey course.

The course is consistent with the Common Requirements defined in regulations 1035/2011 and 2017/373.
After completing the course, participants will be able to identify appropriate survey techniques for the analysis of the safety of service provision and the effectiveness of the SMS.
This course, and particularly when combined with the subsequent stages, is designed for personnel who are to assist the safety department with the planning and conducting of individual safety surveys within a structured safety survey regime. The 3-day introductory course on its own will also be of interest to personnel responsible for the safety oversight of safety survey activities and operational and technical staff requiring more information on the assurance of the on-going safety of service provision.
