An IHST regional meeting was held in 2007. Industry sector analysis had been undertaken. ATSB/CAANZ conducts ongoing analysis. Targeted industry safety actions and campaigns took place in Australia between 2006 and 2007 and in New Zealand between 2003 and 2008. Australia launched an education campaign in training schools in 2008 as well as industry risk profiling. New Zealand initiated an industry introduction and adoption of SMS between 2009 and 2011. 2011 brought the regional launch of the National Diploma Series in SMS, Risk Management, and Regulatory Oversight and Governance. Current foundations for engagement include education on IHST activities globally, invoking national pride to participate, adaptation of IHST models used worldwide for the regional context, acknowledgement of similarities and differences, and linking industry involvement to current efforts.
