Presented by Steve Bentley – CEO of Sofema Aviation Services & SofemaOnline, 2/23/2021 - An Effective Safety Management System (SMS) can be considered as a game-changer where the organisation is able to

- Identify what are the risks

- Establish how these risks are mitigated and

- Determine if the mitigations are effective

Presented by Steve Bentley – CEO of Sofema Aviation Services & SofemaOnline

- Considering the Role & Purpose of the “Safety Audit”

- Considering the Difference Between Quality & Safety Audits

The Basics

- Quality Audits are “Prescriptive” Assessments (Independent) of either external regulatory obligations or internal organisational system obligations.

- Safety Audits assess a system or process with the goal of identifying hazards and determining the risk of such “Hazards” impacting the business in an “Unacceptable” way.

- Safety Audits are Subjective because they are essentially opinions based on the understanding by the assessing “subject matter expert”.

So How to Perform a Safety Audit?

Now that we know that we are looking at the risk associated with “organisational hazards”

Please visit this document:

Now – choose a Hazard – As part of determining the Risk – you decide to perform a Safety Audit

Here are the Core Safety Audit Questions

Step 1 – Turn the Story Around

This situation is not a threat to our organisation because:

- The Procedure is Strong & Robust

- The Management of the Process is Effective and Well Controlled

- The Communication related to the Process is Strong and documented – Including all stakeholders internal /external

- The Training associated with the situation is effective and verifiable

- We have no findings/observations during QA Audits

- There are no voluntary reports which concern any of these aspects

- We have sufficient Manpower to provide effective delivery of process

Step 2 – Looking into the Future

This situation is not a threat to our organisation because:

- The Process management is effective now and seen to be scaleable into the future – what happens with new starters?

- The Communication Process is effective through & across the business

- New Starters who involve in the process receive training as required – how decided & how measured for effectiveness

Note that in each case you are making “judgment calls”.
