Description of event
Safety in Aviation Forum for Europe – SAFE 360° is an innovative conference format that provides the audience with an all-round multi-sectorial picture of the safety issues, a focused examination of key risk areas and a toolbox of potential mitigations. 

While safety issues may be complex, the challenge is to understand the shared risks from the perspective of the different actors in the aviation system. Mitigations enacted at the organisational level may not provide the complete solution.  Additionally, solutions may result in risk transference to other stakeholders and activities. SAFE 360° will give stakeholders a broader perception of the combined safety risk picture.  SAFE 360° will deliver a multi-domain perspective that considers an array of solutions and broadens the overall understanding of possible mitigations. The approach is designed to inspire us all to examine the approaches that we apply, and search for improved synergies and methods. 

The conference begins at lunchtime on 13 May 2019. The first day will visit the different strategic views, discuss the top-safety risks and balance those views with possible collaborative mitigations. The second and third days, while thematically different, will follow a similar rhythm. 360° discussions on runway incursion and lithium batteries will be followed by breakout sessions on occurrence reporting and flight data monitoring on day 2. Day 3 will concentrate on ground safety with a further FDM break-out session.

SAFE 360° will support the European Safety Management System, the European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS) and complement the Data4Safety initiative.

SAFE is only open to aviation professionals in the commercial fixed wing operation domain, coming from Regulators, Manufacturers, Flight Crew, ATM/ ANSPs, Engineers, Airports, Ground Handling and Research Organisations.
