In November, the annual CANSO Global ATM Safety Conference was held in Budapest, Hungary. Hosted by
HungaroControl, the week featured sessions on human performance, fatigue, remotely piloted aircraft systems
(RPAS), safety management system (SMS) drift, safety performance indicators, the CANSO Standard of Excellence in
Air Navigation Services - Safety (SEANS - Safety), and alternative approaches to risk.
During the Safety Conference, CANSO presented the CANSO Global Safety Achievement Award 2016 to the
International Audit Cooperating Team (IntAct), in recognition of its proactive and international approach to reducing
aviation risk internationally.
CANSO delivered assistant assessor training for the SEANS - Safety programme in San Jose, Costa Rica and Cairo,
Egypt. This training prepares ANSP employees to participate in on-site SEANS-Safety assessments as an assistant
to the lead assessor. In January, CANSO conducted a SEANS-Safety assessment at ATNS in Johannesburg, South
The Human Performance Management Task Force is developing tools and guidance materials for elements of the
CANSO Human Performance Management Standard of Excellence, to help ANSPs realise the immediate benefits
of managing human performance. Plans are in place to conduct a Human Performance Management Workshop
following the CANSO Africa Conference this year.
