Here's a friendly reminder that comments on the recently resealed draft advisory circular regarding hazardous materials handling must be in by 3 October 2011. Submissions to Matt Windebank by then will be duly regarded - after that date, not so much.
Here is another chance to have your say - this time it's a revision of the old CAAP 89I-1(2) to match the more modern CASR Part 139 and associated advisory circular format. Draft AC 139-12(0) - Handling of Hazardous Materials on an Aerodrome "provides guidance to Aerodrome Operators on aerodrome administration andoperating procedures for the handling of hazardous materials on the aerodrome" as required by CASR 139.095.
Send your comments to Matt Windebank by 3 October 2011.
The ATSB has posted, today, a discussion paper and set of draft regulations covering its confidential reporting system. You can have your say on the proposals with submissions accepted until the 16th December 2011. Comments, questions etc. can be sent to email@example.com. The discussion paper covers the 'no-blame' and 'just culture' approaches to reporting systems - no, they are not the same. These are concepts I'm very keen to research more, so stayed tuned - don't hold your breath though, its pretty hectic over here right now but I will try to post a few more things this week.
