EUROCONTROL and the ETF held a joint Conference on "Safety and Human Performance" .
At the Conference, various aspects of safety and human performance in air traffic management (ATM), including the growing automation of ATC, the need for a safety culture, regulation and licensing requirements as well as training of ATM staff have been tackled.
The Conference focused on how human factors influence and can improve safety. It underlined that human factors and competence of staff working in air traffic management (ATM) are at the heart of the ATM industry and are essential to delivering the best safety performance.
“Safety and human performance are pivotal features in every project we undertake”, said David McMillan, Eurocontrol DG.
“Safety is a real priority. There is a strong personnel commitment to safety and we cannot split the working arrangements and the safety issues. Safety requires permanent information and training to keep high the awareness of the staff, the management, the users and the public,” said François Ballestero, ETF Civil Aviation Political Secretary.
