The risks associated with hazards seem obvious after an incident or accident; however, the initial identification and interpretation of hazards are some of the most challenging aspects of risk management. A Maintenance LOSA (MLOSA) adopts a proactive strategy to address this. Effective MLOSA observations improve safety, operational efficiency and reliability, offering learning opportunities without the negative consequences and associated costs of an incident or accident. The objective safety data gathered can be analysed to identify threats present during normal aviation operations, offering the opportunity to introduce successful interventions and prevent unwanted events.
Using a tried and tested methodology, we work with you to put the necessary infrastructure in place so that you can conduct structured observations of routine maintenance activity, accurately record and analyse the resulting data and use it to identify corrective actions and/or interventions and inform staff training. Benefits include:
We can help an organisation design, implement and use the trend data that emerges from an effective observation programme. We scope the need with you and provide a bespoke programme in accordance with your requirements. Typically, a Baines Simmons MLOSA programme will include:
