NATIONAL SAFETY REPORTS:
Unfortunately, there are many countries that are not yet participating and providing national Safety Reports to the IPC Technical and Safety Committee for compilation of information each year. It is important to the thoroughness and usefulness of this document that every organisation in the world (and that includes all of us in ASIANIA) makes an effort to provide a record of notable incidents and fatalities each year.
Did your country send a Safety Report to the IPC Technical and Safety Committee this year?
PLEASE MAKE AN EFFORT IN 2018 TO COMPLETE THE SAFETY REPORT AND SEND IT TO THE FAI IPC T&S
Does your organisation have a designated national Safety Officer? Technical Officer?
Do all of your Drop Zones have local area Safety Officers who send in Incident reports to this national person so that a record of all incidents that happen can be complied and forwarded to the FAI IPC Technical and Safety Committee each year. Persons or Drop Zones in these reports are anonymous and all information is important.
If assistance in developing a Safety Officer or manual is needed, please advise us, and you will be directed to personnel and organisations that can provide support in these areas.
The Australian Parachute Federation (APF) also has a wealth of information and publications which could be useful including Safety Management, Student Training, Instructor Training, Aircraft and Pilots to name just a few.

PLAN A SAFETY DAY ACTIVITY FOR THE 7th APRIL.
Make every jump safe and enjoyable. Have a Safety Seminar at your drop zone
– include jumpers, pilots and everyone involved in running the Drop Zone
– and discuss how we can all make this sport safer.
PLEASE share this information with everyone in ASIANIA.
On behalf of the ASIANIA Chair of Safety Committee, Effendi Soen
Thank you for your valuable time and support.
Keep jumping safe and enjoyable.
