The ATM Safety Manager [SAF-MGR]

Classroom Course

A course lasting 4 1/2 days, designed for those responsible for developing, implementing and participating in a systematic approach to managing ATM safety, including the necessary organisational structures, accountabilities, policies and procedures.

A high level of interaction is expected in this course. There will be sub-group exercises with a final (major) exercise. To facilitate interaction and augment the learning effect, the total number of participants will not exceed 16, and for the sub-group exercises they will be split into 4 groups of 4 participants, which is the optimum situation.
Prerequisites
It is essential that participants to this course had first attended either the SAF-SMS-A or the SAF-SMS-P because the SAF-MGR will not revise the elements covered in the Introduction to the SMS or in the From Theory to Practice courses. In the case of the latter course, the attendance must have been not later than year 2013.
Important Note

EU regulation requires an Air Navigation Service Provider to appoint a Safety Manager who will be responsible for the implementation and maintenance of an effective, pro-active, and explicit SMS.

This Safety Manager, naturally, needs more than just a basic knowledge of safety management because he/she will have a wide area of responsibility where the purpose of the job with regards to safety will be:

·         implementation, maintenance and promotion of SMS in line with best practice and the regulatory requirements, and

·         an independent assessment of the organisation‘s safety performance to identify trends and promote awareness.

Over the years the need for Safety Manager training became necessary following the maturity of the ANSP's SMS and also because of people changing jobs, internal re-organisations, etc. This course has been designed to cover this necessity.
Objectives

After completing the course, participants will:
 

·   describe the Safety Manager’s tasks and responsibilities;

·   understand the requirements related to the Safety Manager’s role;

·   apply the knowledge gained to solve problems, identify relationships, and come up with possible solutions, with ideas on how to apply these solutions in their local context;

·    network and share information and materials with other attendees.       

Audience
This course is intended for aspiring Safety Managers and other key management personnel who will be instrumental in the development, implementation, and management of SMS. Regulatory Authority representatives who will be responsible for approving, auditing, and monitoring the SMS system will also benefit from attending this course.
Certificate awarded
All candidates will receive a certificate of attendance.
