The scope of the MOD’s Defence Standard 00-56 is all about “managing the Risk to Life associated with operation of military systems” and is driven by the “general guidance provided by the Health & Safety Executive”. Accordingly, it sets out safety requirements on all contractors providing products, services or systems to the MOD and is not aerospace specific.
Being able to demonstrate that your organisation is meeting the intent of Def Stan 00-56 can be a challenge particularly if your organisation is far removed from the actual operation of the military system. This is further complicated by additional regulatory obligations, standards and design codes pertaining to the subject. For design organisations a significant complicating factor is that many use goal/failure based safety criteria for acceptable levels of technical failure probability whilst 00-56 (and RA1210) operators utilise risk/accident based safety for acceptable levels of accident probability.
Contracting for safety therefore requires careful planning to integrate the safety deliverables from suppliers into systems and then into aircraft which need to be safely operated and maintained.

Is this course right for me?
This course is specifically designed to help all providers of product, services and systems to the UK MOD to comply with the intent of Def Stan 00-56.
It is also suitable for MoD contracting personnel (i.e. DE&S, PT and Duty Holders) to help you to understand how to most effectively integrate the 00-56 deliveries (or DIDs in Annex C) into a single and manageable Safety Case.
Some experience in conducting, managing or approving safety related deliverables will be of benefit in understanding the concepts, advantages and limitations discussed.
Course format: This course is a balanced mix of group discussions, flipchart work and PowerPoint presentations. Managed syndicate exercises give you the opportunity to practise the application and evaluation of new processes and techniques.
Course level: Practitioner Level Training (P) is suitable for those who have worked in the subject for some time, are familiar with core terminologies and concepts and are looking to develop or update their level of knowledge and practical understanding.
Assessment process: No formal assessment. Formative feedback is provided by the facilitator.
Course size: 16 persons maximum at our Aviation Safety Academy or on-site at your facility
