City University London will host members and participants of the Aviation Risk Management Solutions (ARMS) working group during a one-day forum on 28th March.

ARMS, an independent industry working group, was established in 2007 in order to develop a novel and improved methodology for operational risk assessment and classification. Out of this emerged a guiding document, issued in 2010, that addressed the field of incident and event risk classification (ERC) and Safety Issue Risk Assessment (SIRA) which was made freely available to the industry via SKYbrary.

nullDuring the forum, participants will have an opportunity to share their experiences and evaluate the effectiveness of ARMS.

Potential users will also be able to learn about ARMS strategies and solutions. Over the last four years, there has been increasing interest and understanding of the measurement of risk across the aviation industry. Senior Lecturer and programme director of City's MSc in Air Safety Management, Dr Ivan Sikora, an ARMS working group member is delighted to be welcoming participants to the University next week:

"I am pleased to be welcoming participants of the Aviation Risk Management Solutions (ARMS) working group to City on the 28th March. City has enjoyed a long and distinguished reputation in aeronautical engineering education for close to a century. Our in-demand post-graduate courses in air safety management are becoming must-have qualifications for aviation industry professionals. I look forward to our deliberations and to discovering ways of impacting the aviation industry with our approaches and methodologies."
