Zambia is to host the Safety in African Aviation (SiAA) conference
in the city of Livingstone on 24 to 25 November, 2016 being organised
by AviAssist Foundation, according to Tom Kok,
Director of AviAssist Foundation.
According to Kok, SiAA is Africa’s premier aviation safety event,
drawing professionals from across Africa and the globe to examine
safety matters of special concern to the aviation community.
Kok says that delegates will have unrestricted access to the safety
event in Africa whilst being given the opportunity to network with
experts from all domains of aviation safety.
Key topics will include human factors, aircraft dispatching, incident
investigation, remotely piloted aircraft systems, flight data
management, dangerous goods, safety management, systems
simplified, prerequisites to develop a safety culture, just
culture, ground handling safety, spatial disorientation and
accidents, just to mention a few.
“Conference attendees will also have free access to a pre-conference
workshop on state safety programme implementation and a
pre-conference workshop on just culture,” Kok said.
It is also reported that delegates will also hear from airlines,
airports, regulators and independent experts as they discuss core
safety challenges that they are facing now and over the coming year.
The conference presentations are expected to deliver specific
information that can be applied directly to aviation operations,
according to Kok.
