FLIGHT SAFETY AUDIT METHODOLOGY
Flight Safety Pty Ltd applies typical ISO 9001:2008 auditing techniques, such as opening meeting, only auditing with auditee key personnel present, closing meeting with mutual agreement on non-compliances based on objective evidence. Checklists are used as an aide-mémoire during the audit.
This methodical process is recorded in a comprehensive final report that includes digital photographic records of all relevant aspects of the audit. Post audit guidance is offered as to the most appropriate corrective and preventative action.
Over 1500 audits have been carried out on rotary and fixed wing operations in charter, airline/regional airline, helicopter offshore operations including Helideck inspections, geophysical survey, emergency medical service, marine pilot transfer, and these involve the full spectrum of air operations, ground operations including security.
Flight Safety Pty Ltd uses qualitative and quantitative risk assessment techniques developed specifically for all types of aviation activities as described.
Flight Safety Pty Ltd integrates risk management into quality management control structures.
Flight Safety Pty Ltd has introduced a risk-assessed audit reporting technique whereby an Air Operating Company is audited accorded to a graded risk system and provide a one page organisational executive summary. The detail of the audit can then be followed through into the report if required.
Flight Safety Pty Ltd specialises in incident/accident systems analyses where organisational systems and procedures are examined to identify causal failures, once this has been completed it is then possible to apply corrective/preventative actions.
