Set up and maintain your safety management system (SMS)
Corporate flight departments and other operators will find that using AvAudit software saves valuable time and resources when:
- Building and maintaining an SMS
- Reviewing and updating the SMS to keep documentation, policies and procedures current with IS-BAO
- Training personnel on safety procedures, understanding the SMS and developing a safety culture
- Undergoing an SMS audit
- Migrating to the next protocol cycle
AvAudit’s tabbed interface allows operators to organize their SMS documentation according to the IS-BAO standards and requirements. When building and maintaining an SMS, operators can copy and paste standards from AvAudit into their Flight Operations Manual and revise as needed.
Using Cross-References to Save Time During Audits
To prepare for an audit, the operator can add cross-references referencing the location of supporting information from the FOM to each requirement in AvAudit. These cross-references can then be exported to an Excel file and sent to the auditor, who then imports the cross-references into his AvAudit application.
This saves time during the audit since the auditor already has the supporting documentation needed for each IS-BAO requirement. The cross-references only need to be entered once and updated only when new requirements are introduced.
