The Safety Management System represents one of the responsibilities of the company's top managers, which determines the sector policy, by defining the modalities as an integrative part of the productive activity. The Enac (National Civil Aviation Authority) , in the airport sector, defines it in this way: "a system apt to grant that the airport operations, are carried out in safety conditions previously set forth, by evaluating in the meanwhile the efficiency of the system it-self in order to intervene to correct eventual deviations".
The monitoring activity is therefore fundamental in the definition proposed by the National Civil Aviation Authority; the safety data of a system can, indeed, deteriorate with passing of time following up some changes in the operative filed, which must be identified and treated in order to grant that the organization continues to correspond its safety aims. Aeroporti di Roma, therefore, on the basis of the National Civil Aviation Authority's requirements, adopted an auditing process as an actual act of a policy aiming to monitor the activities, in order to evaluate its continuous improving, in co-operation with the company's functions involved.
The ADR Group started since 2006 an implementing process of its own Safety Management System, on the basis of the requirements set forth by National Civil Aviation Authority aiming to the certification for Fiumicino and Ciampino airports. In September 2006, it was set up the Safety Board, an authority with the aim to receive the contribution of the highest company's levels on safety subjects, by evaluating and sharing the initiatives to develop in the sector.
The Safety Board is made up of:
- Accountable manager (S. A. Donnarumma)
- Safety Manager (G. Alfieri)
- Post-Holder movement and terminal area Fiumicino (M. Sbrenni)
- Post-Holder maintenance and infrastructures and system Fiumicino (R. Poli)
- Post-Holder infrastructure and system project (P. Cambula)
- Post-Holder maintenance and infrastructures and system Ciampino (C. Pede)
- Post-Holder movement and terminal area Ciampino (A. Anticoli Borza)
ADR's Safety Policy defined by the Safety Board, sets forth that:
"Aeroporti di Roma puts safety of airport operations at first place in the primary aims of its own management activity, by supplying it-self, for this purpose, with a Safety Management System aiming to grant the best efficiency in all the efforts, which are made for the safeguard of passengers and users' safety of the airport. The company promotes all the initiatives and the behaviours aiming to reach the highest safety levels, considered an essential element for the evaluation of the company's performances at any level".
In November 2006 the Safety Committee of Fiumicino airport was set up, a consulting committee chaired by ADR, whose members, endowed with a decisional autonomy and responsible towards the outside, are individuated in the field of the company's top managers of the organization both public and private, present in the airport.
The Safety Committee's aims are the following:
- to grant the participation of all the subjects operating inside the airport;
- to involve all the airport operators in the safety aims;
- to analyse and propose solutions for the problems faced;
- to involve the operators on the SMS's results.
One of the fundamental elements of the Safety Management System is the Reporting System.In any anomalous event there are elements which, if known and inquired into, can lead to corrective actions being taken so the event is not to be repeated. Aeroporti di Roma has the objective of encouraging the participation of all the operators in its Reporting System. They are asked to signal any event which may effect airport safety, by filling in a Safety Report.
Not only is this form an important means of communication to accurately describe events, but it also allows for a thorough inquiry of all anomalous situations, for the purpose of prevention. The Safety Report is one of the most important tools of communication between the ADR Group and the operators working in the two airports, to make sure no event is overlooked.
The form can be downloaded in Italian and in English and is both in excel and pdf formats.
