As aviation safety regulations move towards adopting a more progressive Performance-based Environment approach, the case for organisations being able to demonstrate how well you are managing your safety becomes ever more compelling. It not only unlocks your ability to engage proactively with your regulator but can provide powerful insights that can influence how to manage your organisation.
The challenge, however, for many organisations is to work out what these meaningful measures are. What should you expect to see from your SMS? What does “good” look like? Are there different measures according to size and complexity of your operation?
How will this course benefit me?
This workshop is designed to explore the concept of performance and how to measure success.
Completing this course will provide you with:
  • An understanding of the benefits of measuring your safety performance, which will enable you to gain buy in from your stakeholders
  • Improved knowledge on what good looks like
  • The ability to start developing your own safety metrics
Key areas of focus
  • Defining Safety performance
  • Safety measurement in a Performance based Environment
  • Acceptable levels of safety

  • Accountable Managers
  • Safety Managers
