In an effort to promote safety enhancement initiatives, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), with the cooperation of the French Civil Aviation Authority (French DGAC), and the support of Airbus, is holding a Hazard and Risk Identification Workshop from March 28-29, 2023 at the Civil Aviation Training Center (CATC) attended by main stakeholders of the Philippine air transport system.
At least 60 participants from organizations, stakeholders, and service providers coming from domains such as general aviation, air operators, maintenance organizations, training organizations, airport operations, ground handling, air traffic service, air navigation service, flight standards service, safety oversight, and meteorology service, are joining the seminar.
Through the two-day workshop, participants will engage in interactive discussions that will allow them to collaborate and share insights and interpretations on safety, hazard, and risk, as well as build accident scenarios and discuss ways forward that will aid in building trust among stakeholders and move forward to produce the country’s hazard register.
CAAP spokesman Eric Apolonio said that the workshop, which aims to introduce a better understanding of aviation hazards and risks in the Philippines, strengthen information sharing within the Philippine Air Transport System stakeholders, and identify areas that will serve the future update of the National Aviation Safety Plan, will be facilitated by safety management and enhancement experts from the French DGAC, Airbus, and Bureau Veritas.
“CAAP is continuously building on its safety oversight capacity, with a renewed focus on risk management in accordance with international standards,” CAAP Deputy Director General for Operations (DDGO) Captain Edgardo Diaz said in his welcome remarks.
“I urge you all to take advantage of this opportunity to share your valuable knowledge and expertise in this workshop. Together, we can make significant strides towards aviation safety and continue to provide passengers and air transport stakeholders with safe, secure, and efficient air transport services,” he added.
