Safety Policy Elements
The elements of our Safety Policy include:

– SMS documentation & records
Safety & Risk Management
The fundamental purpose of our risk management system is the early identification of potential problems. The risk management system enhances the manner in which management safety decisions are made.
– Hazard identification and analysis
– Risk assessment and control
The ongoing monitoring of all systems and the application of corrective actions are core functions of teh QAS.
Continuous improvement can only occur when we display constant vigilance regarding the effectiveness of our operations and our corrective actions.
Without ongoing monitoring of corrective actions, there is no way of telling whether the problem has been corrected and the safety objective met.
– Safety performance monitoring and measurement
– Management of Change
– Continual Improvement
Safety is the “Core Value” and is everyone’s responsibility.
We will all promote a positive safety culture because this is what will influence correct behavior and lead to safe mission accomplishment.
– Competencies and training
