1 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Dale Wright IFATCA Executive Board IFATCA's Perspective on TEM and NOSS

2 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations IFATCA's Involvement IFATCA participated in: IFATCA participated in: 1st ICAO TEM Workshop 1st ICAO TEM Workshop El Salvador, San Salvador, April 2002 El Salvador, San Salvador, April rd ICAO LOSA Week 3rd ICAO LOSA Week Dubai, UAE, October 2002 Dubai, UAE, October rd ICAO/IATA TEM/LOSA Conference 3rd ICAO/IATA TEM/LOSA Conference Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 2005 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September st ICAO Symposium on TEM and NOSS 1 st ICAO Symposium on TEM and NOSS Luxembourg, November 2005 Luxembourg, November 2005

3 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations IFATCA's Position in 2002 TEM philosophy can be applied to ATC TEM philosophy can be applied to ATC Normal Operations Monitoring can be applied in ATC, but: Normal Operations Monitoring can be applied in ATC, but: LOSA is not a suitable tool for ATC LOSA is not a suitable tool for ATC A new tool needs to be developed A new tool needs to be developed Normal Operations Monitoring is only useful in organisations with a mature Safety Management System Normal Operations Monitoring is only useful in organisations with a mature Safety Management System

4 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Developments Since : Informal working group discussing a tool called Normal Operations Safety Survey – NOSS (i.e. LOSA for ATC) 2003: Informal working group discussing a tool called Normal Operations Safety Survey – NOSS (i.e. LOSA for ATC) 2004: ICAO establishes the NOSS Study Group (NOSSSG) 2004: ICAO establishes the NOSS Study Group (NOSSSG) Members: Airservices Australia, Airways Corporation New Zealand, NavCanada, ATC The Netherlands, DFS Germany, Eurocontrol, UK CAA, FAA, IFATCA Members: Airservices Australia, Airways Corporation New Zealand, NavCanada, ATC The Netherlands, DFS Germany, Eurocontrol, UK CAA, FAA, IFATCA University of Texas as scientific advisor University of Texas as scientific advisor

5 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations IFATCA Policy (2005) Monitoring Safety in Normal Operations must be seen as an integral element of a Safety Management System. Monitoring Safety in Normal Operations must be seen as an integral element of a Safety Management System. A Safety tool such as NOSS, shall meet the following conditions: A Safety tool such as NOSS, shall meet the following conditions: Joint management/controller sponsorship; Joint management/controller sponsorship; Voluntary participation; Voluntary participation; Trained observers; Trained observers; set targets of safety enhancements; set targets of safety enhancements; de-identified, confidential, and non-disciplinary data collection; de-identified, confidential, and non-disciplinary data collection; adequate feedback of the results to the controller adequate feedback of the results to the controller (Melbourne 05.C.5)

6 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Safety Related Working Conditions Accident Investigation Incident Reporting & Investigation Proficiency Checking Automated Safety Data Extraction Normal Operations Safety Survey

7 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Accident Investigation Proficiency Checking Normal Operations Safety Survey

8 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Safety Change Process ATC Operations Feedback (NOSS/IncInv AccInv/etc) Analyse Findings & Propose Changes Implement Changes

9 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Message For ATSPs If you don't have a sound Safety Change Process, don't bother thinking about having a NOSS If you don't have a sound Safety Change Process, don't bother thinking about having a NOSS The TEM framework can be introduced in the training and operations of any ATSP The TEM framework can be introduced in the training and operations of any ATSP The TEM framework is a way of thinking; almost a safety philosophy NOSS is a tool for safety data collection in normal operations, based on the TEM framework

10 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations IFATCA Policy (2005) Monitoring Safety in Normal Operations must be seen as an integral element of a Safety Management System. Monitoring Safety in Normal Operations must be seen as an integral element of a Safety Management System. A Safety tool such as NOSS, shall meet the following conditions: A Safety tool such as NOSS, shall meet the following conditions: Joint management/controller sponsorship; Joint management/controller sponsorship; Voluntary participation; Voluntary participation; Trained observers; Trained observers; set targets of safety enhancements; set targets of safety enhancements; de-identified, confidential, and non-disciplinary data collection; de-identified, confidential, and non-disciplinary data collection; adequate feedback of the results to the controller adequate feedback of the results to the controller (Melbourne 05.C.5)

11 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Protection of Sources of Safety Data IFATCA working paper for 11th ICAO Air Navigation Conference (2003): "A just culture, free from the threat of punishment is needed to ensure comprehensive and systematic safety occurrence reporting". IFATCA working paper for 11th ICAO Air Navigation Conference (2003): "A just culture, free from the threat of punishment is needed to ensure comprehensive and systematic safety occurrence reporting".

12 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Resolution from ICAO Assembly (2004): "..to develop appropriate legal guidance that will assist States to enact national laws and regulations to effectively protect information from safety data collection systems, both mandatory and voluntary, while allowing for the proper administration of justice in the State..". Resolution from ICAO Assembly (2004): "..to develop appropriate legal guidance that will assist States to enact national laws and regulations to effectively protect information from safety data collection systems, both mandatory and voluntary, while allowing for the proper administration of justice in the State..". Protection of Sources of Safety Data

13 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations IFATCA Position Investigation of safety occurrences should be the first priority – not criminal prosecution Investigation of safety occurrences should be the first priority – not criminal prosecution Safety data collected under any programme must remain privileged information Safety data collected under any programme must remain privileged information

14 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations IFATCA Position Occurrence investigations must be completed properly and probable cause(s) determined so that steps can be taken to ensure that similar occurrences can be prevented Occurrence investigations must be completed properly and probable cause(s) determined so that steps can be taken to ensure that similar occurrences can be prevented In order to improve aviation safety there must be a free flow of safety-related information In order to improve aviation safety there must be a free flow of safety-related information

15 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers Associations Conclusion IFATCA supports the development of NOSS as a tool for collecting safety data during normal ATC operations. IFATCA supports the development of NOSS as a tool for collecting safety data during normal ATC operations.
