Notes ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ Aviation Safety & Security Management Behavioural-based Safety Safety management must be based on the behaviour of people and the organizational culture. Everyone has a responsibility for safety and should participate in safety management efforts. Modern organization safety strategy has progressed from “safety by compliance” to more of an appropriate concept of “prevention by planning”. Reliance on compliance could translate to after-the-fact hazard detection, which does not identify organizational errors, that are often times, the contributors to accidents. Modern safety management, i.e. – “system safety management” – adopts techniques of system theory, statistical analysis, behavioural sciences and the continuous improvement concept. Two elements critical to this modern approach are a good organizational safety culture and people involvement. The establishment of system safety working groups, analysis teams, and product teams accomplishes a positive cultural involvement when there are consensus efforts to conduct hazard analysis and manage system safety programs. Real-time safety analysis is conducted when operational personnel are involved in the identification of hazards and risks, which is the key to behavioural-based safety. The concept consists of a “train- the trainer” format. The behavioural-based safety process allows an organization to create and maintain a positive safety culture that continually reinforces safe behaviours over unsafe behaviours. This will ultimately result in a reduction of risk. For further information concerning behavioural-based safety contact the FAA’s Office of System Safety. Models Used by System Safety for Analysis The AMS (Acquisition Management System) system safety program uses models to describe a system under study. These models are known as the 5M model and the SHELL model. While there are many other models available, these two recognize the interrelationships and integration of the hardware, software, human, environment and procedures inherent in FAA systems. FAA policy and the system safety approach are to identify and control the risks associated with each element of a system on an individual, interface and system level.

UNIT 16: Principle of System Safety Notes ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ The first step in performing safety risk management is describing the system under consideration. This description should include at a minimum, the functions, general physical characteristics, and operations of the system. Normally, detailed physical descriptions are not required unless the safety analysis is focused on this area. Keep in mind that the reason for performing safety analyses is to identify hazards and risks and to communicate that information to the audience. At a minimum, the safety assessment should describe the system in sufficient detail that the projected audience can understand the safety risks.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
