This is the third stage of the Safety Management Survey Course. Participants must have completed stages 1 and 2 before attending this course.
Safety survey activities complement other SMS activities to help ensure the ongoing safety of service provision. Whereas many aspects of an SMS focus on failure, the value of surveys is that they identify the positive factors that contribute to safety.
The 3-day course provides an overview of safety assurance activities and the role of safety survey within an SMS. The course then looks at a typical safety survey process, the roles and responsibilities of the various actors and the techniques available to collect survey data.
The 3-day safety survey course also provides the introductory module to a three-phase training for safety surveyors. Participants to the SAF-SAS course have the possibility of returning in order to present an actual survey and participate in the critical analysis of their activities. This phase of the training will require participants to conduct a safety survey at their own location at some point during the 3 to 4 month gap between the two classroom phases.
Participants wishing to complete the full three-phase training should indicate this on the booking form. Confirmation will be requested closer to the date of the first phase of training.
Note: Participants must have completed stages 1 and 2 before attending this course.
After completing the course, participants will appreciate the added value of safety surveys within an SMS.
This is a 3-stage course based on theoretical modules, demonstrations and practical applications of all phases of a survey.
This course, and particularly when combined with the subsequent stages, is designed for personnel who are to assist the safety department with the planning and conducting of individual safety surveys within a structured safety survey regime.
The 3-day introductory course on its own will also be of interest to personnel responsible for the safety oversight of safety survey activities and operational and technical staff requiring more information on the assurance of the on-going safety of service provision.
Candidates passing the assessment(s) will receive a certificate of accomplishment. Other candidates will receive a certificate of attendance.
