(MENAFN Press) Under the Patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman of Dubai Airports, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Emirates Group, security, safety and operations leaders of industry organisations worldwide will come together in Dubai for the second Aviation Safety Culture Summit to be held next month.

Hosted by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and organised by Streamline Marketing Group, the summit will run from 3-4 February 2014 at Park Hyatt in Dubai. The event will attract more than 300 local and international stakeholders from regulatory authorities, airlines, airport operators, aircraft manufacturers, pilot associations, safety organisations and air traffic control service providers to discuss key strategies and challenges in improving safety culture across the industry.

The two-day summit will comprise panel discussions covering a range of topics, including initiatives that are currently in place to improve aviation safety. The sessions will focus on how to develop a global aviation safety plan, how to improve co-operation between partners in the industry and the importance of developing the necessary human capital and creating training programmes to create a safety culture among the workforce.

"Safety is the number one priority for air transport and aviation is the safest means of transport," said H.E. Mohammed Abdulla Ahli, Director General at the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority. "To continue this lead and ensure air transport continues to play a major role in driving sustainable economic and social development, collaboration and sharing of best practice, is required among all partners of the industry.''

"The first edition of The Aviation Safety Culture Summit proved its success as a strategic global platform for industry leaders to discuss safety issues and find ways of collaboration. The agenda for the upcoming event has been built around the results from the first edition," he added.

The summit will also comprise four sessions focusing on areas including adapting and implementing international safety culture best practices for local workforces and implementing systems to manage human error effectively and to avoid future accidents. Applying diverse perspectives on culture in an aviation environment and understanding the benefit of technology as a catalyst for improving safety in the aviation industry will also be areas for discussion.

The event is sponsored by Honeywell, Boeing, AAL Group, dnata, Maximus Air, Chevron and Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies and supported by AviAssist Foundation.
