NATS Safety Target

2014-2019 Target - To reduce the accident risk per flight attributable to NATS, in line with currently predicted traffic growth by 13% by 2020
Reviewed in 2015 with the introduction of RAT scoring
Safety target was translated into an operational measure that requires both airport and en-route operations to reduce the rate of NATS RAT points per 100,000 movements by 13% by 2020 (The annual number of RAT points must stay constant throughout the control period even with the increase traffic levels)

Safety Plan Sections

Safe Today - Our primary responsibility for managing the safety risk in our operation. Focusing on short term and on-going tactical measures undertaken at the units to address day-to-day risk in the operation

Safer Tomorrow - Outlines the strategic actions and longer term actions to reduce risk through the introduction of new technologies and operating concepts. Also describes actions to be taken with regard to emerging risks

Raising Our Capability - Developing our future capabilities in safety management, safety leadership, human performance and to continue to develop out understanding of what delivers a safe service

Outward Looking - Reflecting upon the actions required to manage the changing operational environment and regulatory regime in which we operate. Also describing how we contribute to and influence the direction of global ATM safety whilst also being open with, and learning from, other organisations and industries

What is SMS

Safety Management System
A systematic and proactive approach to managing safety risks
Includes goal setting, planning and measuring performance
Woven into the organisation and becomes the way people do their jobs
Formal Risk Management process that identifies hazards and assesses and mitigates risk - residual risk may remain
