NAF Board sits in Lagos to review safety standards

By Emmanuel Obisue

Nigerian Air Force, NAF, has reiterated the commitment of the force in developing, implementing and reviewing policies to ensure that its operations are conducted with utmost safety.

As part of efforts to enhance safety practices within the force, the Chief of the Air Staff, CAS, Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, gave the assurance on Wednesday during a NAF Safety Review Board, SRB, currently sitting in Lagos.

Air Marshal Amao who is also the Chairman of the Board, stated the importance of the SRB, which is to guide the NAF in appropriately allocating resources to support all safety systems and build organizational culture that fosters safe practices.

The CAS who added that the meeting was expected to provide an avenue to examine prevalent and evolving safety challenges to enable the NAF adopt safety processes to uphold high safety standards in all its activities, also stated that beyond the discussions dwelling on safety in air operations, the year 2022 safety meeting must also deliberate on health and environmental safety measures and strategies, bearing in mind the consequences of neglecting the working and living environments as well as poor personal health management.

Air Marshal Amao thus directed the Chief of Standards and Evaluation to ensure that all NAF units have at least a safety-trained officer to mitigate the dangers associated with poor safety management and procedures. He reiterated the need for all NAF pilots and aircrew to continue to be updated with evolving safety measures and ensure they keep abreast with new safety innovations in line with best international practices.

The SRB meeting which is expected to dovetail into a two-day Safety Seminar from November 24 to 25, comes barely a month after the NAF Operations Seminar held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
