Baines Simmons develops risk management course for Military Aviation Authority
Baines Simmons, part of the Training & Consultancy division of global aviation services group Air Partner, has developed an exclusive course for the Military Aviation Authority (MAA), entitled “MAA Air Safety Risk Assessment and Management Practitioners” (MASRAMP). Baines Simmons has had a contract with the MAA under the Defence Aviation Error Management Systems (DAEMS) programme since September 2011.
The course has been designed to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills to practically apply the requirements of RA1210 – ‘Ownership and Management of Operating Risk (Risk to Life)’ – and provide personnel with direct air safety responsibility with a better understanding of the MAA’s expectations towards the practical implementation of safety risk management regulation. The MAA required a bespoke course that was tailored to the unique military environment and MASRAMP was the end result.
Baines Simmons offered the MAA the opportunity to accredit the course with the Institute of Risk Management (IRM), the world’s leading enterprise risk management education body, and this was confirmed in December 2016. MASRAMP joins Baines Simmons’ other IRM accredited course, TS90: “Safety Risk Management for Professional Practitioners”.
The MASRAMP course complements Baines Simmons’ suite of existing safety risk courses, which it grew last year with the launches of two collaborative courses on Bow Tie training services that it developed in partnership with CGE Risk Management.
Andy Llewellyn, Senior Consultant and DAEMS Programme Manager at Baines Simmons, said: “We were delighted to provide the MAA with a bespoke solution for its safety risk management needs and we are constantly seeking to develop new concepts to support the safety performance needs of our clients. We have worked closely with the MAA for more than six years now and look forward to helping the team implement and carry out this course effectively.”
