NAMA Trains Controllers, Others on Safety Management



Chinedu Eze
The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has organised two separate training workshops in Lagos for some of its critical personnel on Safety Management.

The workshops were facilitated by Aviation Academy for Southern Africa (AAFSA) and the training included three-day workshop on Safety Management Systems (SMS) and a five-day training which focused on the Impact of Human Factor in Air Traffic Management Safety.

While the former was for members of NAMA Safety Action Group (SAG) and selected Air Traffic Controllers in the agency according to their Safety Management Systems (SMS) related functions in the field; the latter was targeted strictly at Air Traffic Controllers selected from strategic airports across the country.

The Safety Management Systems training was designed to impact basic SMS knowledge to participants and enable them understand the basic concepts, principles, theories, procedures and processes of Safety Management Systems in aviation.

The training primarily focused on the provisions of the State Safety Programme (SSP) and the SMS Manuals including their interrelationships.

The Human Factor workshop on the other hand dwelled extensively on the crucial role of human factor in hazard identification, safety risk management and critical decision making in the process of air traffic management.

In his remarks at the commencement of the training, the Managing Director of NAMA, Capt. Fola Akinkuotu noted that what informed the policy of aggressive training by his administration was the need to constantly train, and retrain the human person because “only by doing so can we be at par with technology which is also being constantly updated by the passage of each day.”

He expressed satisfaction at the quality of instruction just as he challenged the participants to see themselves as safety champions of NAMA and “be ready to impart this knowledge to others so that it can trickle down the agency with the ultimate aim of making our processes and procedures more compliant with the International Civil Aviation Standard and Recommended Practices (ICAO SARPs).”
