Singapore Launches SSP to Enhance Safety Management in Aviation Industry

Singapore has established a State Safety Programme (SSP) designed to enhance safety management in the aviation industry.

The SSP is in line with the  ICAOs Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP), which sets out a strategy towards continuous improvement of aviation safety globally.

The SSP will enable Singapore to manage safety risks in aviation more effectively by strengthening safety management at the State level.

The programme also augments the current ICAO requirement for aviation organisations to establish an effective safety management system.

Key outcomes include the development of safety enhancement strategies, better safety performance metrics supported by data collection and analysis, and holistic management of aviation safety along the entire aviation value chain.

Mr Kevin Shum, Director-General of Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), said, We are constantly looking to improve aviation safety. To do so, it is very important for us to work closely together as one aviation community. We are pleased with the support and commitment from the aviation community to support the SSP, establish key safety priorities and implement safety improvement initiatives to ensure a high standard of aviation safety.

In supporting SSP, States are required to establish a process to conduct safety investigations into aviation occurrences in accordance with protocols set out by ICAO.

The Transport Safety Investigation Bureau (TSIB), an independent investigation authority in Singapore, is the agency responsible for this function. Mr Chong Chow Wah, Director of TSIB, said, TSIB is committed to working closely with CAAS and other stakeholders to implement the SSP for the improvement of aviation.
