“prevention of an aircraft accident is far more cost effective for companies, the aviation industry, and the community”
“the implementation of any Safety Management System is only as good as the ‘safety activity’ and ‘organisational culture’ it develops and maintains“
“expert experience in the safety management of highly complex aviation operations is essential”
When considering the cost of safety, few managers correctly assess the indirect costs of an aircraft accident. There are many well known aircraft accidents which have caused the demise of, otherwise reputable, aircraft operators. Some of these indirect costs include:
- Recovery of the wreckage and the restoration of the accident site,
- Loss of revenue,
- Insurance premium adjustments,
- Loss of productivity due to a redirection of resources to business recovery,
- Loss of passenger confidence in both the company and the industry,
- Litigation and /or prosecution, and
- The moral cost to a community where life has been lost.
Aerosmart implements pro-active safety management systems and analysis processes which identify operational deficiencies and safety hazards. The safety review and audit processes assess a myriad of organisational elements including:
- Aviation policy,
- Management structures,
- Standard Operating Procedures,
- Check and training programs,
- Safety Management Systems, and
- Safety culture and reporting.
Core to any safety initiative is a formal hazard identification and management system. However, the implementation of any Safety Management System is only as good as the ‘safety activity’ and ‘organisational culture’ it develops and maintains.
Expert experience in the safety management of highly complex aviation operations is essential. Whether your organisation provides Airline, Training, Emergency Medical, Search and Rescue or Fast Jet Military type operations, AeroSmart is well equipped to assist.
