AeroSmart Safety Management

It is generally believed that aviation has an enviable safety record. This is correct when considering larger, regular public transport aircraft. However, when comparing the aviation accident statistics for corporate and general aviation aircraft, standards can vary enormously making it difficult to identify the standards being applied by an organisation.

There is a time-honoured flight safety truism which acknowledges that ‘the prevention of an aircraft accident is far more cost-effective for those involved and the aviation industry.

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 organisations.

Whilst Government Aviation Authorities are tasked with promoting aviation safety and conducting accident and incident investigations, it behoves each of us to intervene and minimise the chance of a chain of events which might lead to an Incident or Accident.

One event rarely causes an accident. Accidents usually result from the interlinking of a number of factors which breach safeguards and barriers built to protect against safety hazards. These hazards can vary in severity and range across the spectrum of aviation operations. When viewed in isolation, some may appear minor or even insignificant in nature, but if placed into a sequence with other hazards, they continue the momentum towards an accident.

” The safety goal for fatal or hull loss accidents must be zero and the goal for other less significant incidents being calculated as a reducing percentage of the previous 2-3 years’ experience ”

“safety management is a robust hazard identification and elimination system which reduces the probability of a chain of events to an incident or accident” 

“AeroSmart safety philosophy emphasises a proactive approach to flight and ground safety”

AeroSmart safety philosophy emphasises a pro-active rather than reactive approach to flight and ground safety. The safety goal for fatal or hull loss accidents must be zero and the goal for other less significant incidents being calculated as a reducing percentage of the previous 2-3 years’ experience. The aim is to set the standard for the coming years by achieving as low an incident rate as possible.

AeroSmart Safety Management Systems seek to address safety issues through a robust hazard identification and occurrence reporting system. Our Hazard Identification and Occurrence Reporting System addresses both ground and air occurrences and aims to reduce the population of hazards within our operation, thereby reducing the probability of a ‘Chain of Events’ to an Incident or Accident.

ASRAM offers a competency based assessment which provides participants the opportunity to benefit from better insurance coverage through a formal quantitative assessment of their aviation qualifications and experience. ASRAM facilitates a path which recognises effort and experience; those which develop Flying Skills, ensure proper Aviation Management process, enhance Aviation Learning and Knowledge, and which importantly attends an understanding of Aviation Safety and the Human Element.
