2 ESSI European Strategic Safety Initiative (ESSI) 10 year programme ( ) aimed at improving aviation safety in Europe, and for the European citizen worldwidePartnership, with more than 150 organisationsPowered by industry and facilitated by EASA
3 ESSI in line with the ICAO Global Aviation Safety Roadmap ICAO GASRMFrame of reference for stakeholders, including States, regulators, airline operators, airports, aircraft manufacturers, pilot associations, safety organisations and air traffic service providersTo improve coordination and sharingTo minimise duplicationDownloadable for instance from the IATA website:The Global Aviation Safety Road Map has been developed in 2006 for ICAO by the Industry Safety Strategy Group (ISSG) under the leadership of IATA in cooperation with Airbus, Airports Council International (ACI), Boeing, Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), International Federation of Air Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) and Flight Safety Foundation.The safety roadmap provides a reference framework for all stakeholders, including States, regulators, operators, airports, manufactures, professional organisations, safety organisations and air traffic service providers, to guide and coordinate safety policies and initiatives worldwide. This framework ensures oversight of the progress towards safety standards and maximises the use of resources by better coordinating safety strategies and avoiding duplication of efforts worldwide.The ESSI naturally fits into this safety roadmap, as it provides a mechanism for coordinating safety initiatives within Europe and between Europe and the rest of the world, seeking for global alignment and minimising duplication of efforts across stakeholders. Both fits well, in a timely manner, and have a similar 10 to 15 years temporal horizon
4 ESSI link to ICAO Global Aviation Safety Roadmap ICAO Focus area 5a:Design and build on existing regional mechanisms in order to foster consistency.ICAO Focus area 5b:Assign priority of action to regions in need on the basis of risk assessment.ICAO Focus area 7a:ICAO SMS standard published. Confirm need for formal (mandate) SMS across all sectors and disciplines of the industry.ICAO Focus area 10bCoordinate and share safety strategies, seeking to achieve alignment and minimize duplication.

At the summit it was decided to establish a Middle East Safety Team, in line with recommendations of the Global Aviation Safety Roadmap. According to the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority, the issues to be addressed include the chronic shortage of aviation professionals and the rapid growth of aviation in the region.AfricaCOSCAP Bangul Accord Group COSCAP Communate Economique et Monétaire de l'Afrique Centrale (CEMAC) COSCAP Union Economique et Monétaire Ouest Africaine (UEMOA)Asia/PacificCooperative Development of Operational Safety and Continuing Airworthiness Program (COSCAP). Operating under ICAO, they include:COSCAP North Asia COSCAP South Asia COSCAP Southeast AsiaCentral/South AmericaPan American Aviation Safety Team (PAAST)Middle EastCOSCAP Gulf StatesRussiaCOSCAP Commonwealth of Independent StatesWe must make one final point. Cooperative safety partnerships built on the CAST model are now emerging and flourishing around the world. We are excited by the possibilities this brings towards worldwide safety improvement. We encourage everyone to strongly support these worthwhile initiatives.

21 ECAST Prioritisation Criteria Safety ImportanceCoverageHigh level Costs benefits considerationsIn line with the Global Aviation Safety Road Map, to avoid duplication priority is modified when topics are already covered. In such case, coordination is recommended. The ECAST priorities list therefore is not a list of major safety issues in Europe.

28 European Helicopter Safety Team EHEST European Helicopter Safety Team EHESTFocus on the ECAST.
30 EHEST The European Helicopter Safety Team EHEST is an industry/regulators partnership for enhancing rotorcraft safety in Europe based on voluntary commitmentFeatures representatives of OEMs, civil operators, regulators, helicopter interest groups, accident investigators, and military operators from across EuropeBrings together around 130 participants, of which 70 are involved in the Analysis TeamGovernance:Regulatory co-chair: John Vincent, EASAIndustry co-chairs: John Black, Bristow and EHOC, Jean-Pierre Dedieu, Eurocopter and EHA
31 EHEST within the ESSI and IHST EHEST is the second ESSI componentAnd also the European branch of the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST)Committed to the IHST goal……with emphasis on European safety
32 EHEST Methodology adapted from CAST ReviewoccurrencesDevelop SafetyEnhancementsImplement SafetyEnhancementsThe methodology was adapted by IHST from CAST (http://www.cast-safety.org/).Founded in 1998, the Commercial Aviation Safety Team has developed an integrated, data-driven strategy to reduce the commercial aviation fatality risk in the United States and promote new government and industry safety initiatives throughout the world.

35 EHSAT Composition Regional EHSAT teams Central EHSAT: UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Nordic team (Norway, Sweeden, Denmark, Finland), CH, Hungary, Ireland)In addition Poland, Romania, Latvia and Slovenia participate in the EHESTCentral EHSAT:Regional teams representatives, plus EASAStandardisation, data integration and analysis, quality control, liaison with the US JHSAT
36 Why regional EHSAT teams? Maximises usage resources: working on local data, less travellingRelations between partners already establishedTeam is aware of local contextImplementations/action plans also haveto be implemented on regional levelLanguage used for accident investigation reports
37 EHSAT Diverse and balanced perspectives and competences Accident analysis is based on a sound method, featuring expert judgementRequires diverse and balanced set of competencesRegional EHSAT feature representatives from the NAA, the AIB, operators, OEM / TC holders, pilot association, GA, and optionally the militaryRegional teams present a large and balanced range of competences, bringing together representatives from the national aviation authority, accident investigation board, a civil operator, a helicopter OEM / TC holder, pilot association, the general aviation community and, optionally the military.
38 EHSAT Analysis Strategy Maintain international compatibilityReviewing accidents using a standard method adapted by IHST from CAST (US Commercial Aviation Safety Team)Results are aggregated at European and worldwide levelsRequirementsUser friendly methodStandardisation and quality controlExtensive Human Factors codingReducing by 80% the helicopter accident rate in the next 10 years implies addressing general aviation operations and human factors aspects. These subjects felt important at an early stage, are expected to be confirmed by data at a later stage.In the European team, human factors are coded using the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System HFACS, developed by Wiegmann and Shappell.
39 EHSAT Dataset Focus on: Documented Accidents (def. ICAO Annex 13)Date of occurrence starting from 2000 onwardsState of occurrence located in EuropeEurope is considered to be the 27 EU Member States plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland (EU27+4).Note: EHSAT is not in competition with Accident Investigation Boards!
