01 Introduction to the Continuous Safety LMS

With this video, we are pleased as Continuous Safety to announce the launch of its our official Competence-Based Training Learning Management Platform to support our colleagues in making proper use of BowTieXP, AuditXP and IncidentXP, as well as ensuring safe, legal, effective, efficient and sustainable operations. Customised training is available upon request. Just give us a call or visit mycs.swiss. Enjoy your safety training!

03 Introduction to the Continuous Safety LMS

In this video we will show you how to start using BowTieXP, the most powerful risk assessment tool on the market. We will start with the first two elements: The Hazard and the Top Event. The video contains lot of real case scenarios which will certainly help you in understanding and associating with examples the method. A free demo can be download on our website mycs.swiss.

05 BowtieXP app Threats and Consequences

Well done! You are making progress! In this video we will continue to show you how to make proper use of BowTieXP, the most powerful risk assessment tool on the market. We will review two important basic elements: The Threats and the Consequences. Once again, the video contains lot of real case scenarios which will certainly help you in understanding and associating with examples the method. A free BowTieXP demo can be download on our website mycs.swiss.

07 Escalation Factors and Escalation Factors Control

In this video we will discuss the topics of Escalation Factors and Escalation Factors Barriers. Escalation Factors are essential in avoiding that Barriers can fail and reinforce their effectiveness. We will also see that Escalation Factors do not control Threats, Top Event or Consequences. The video will show you where Escalation Factors can be set.

09 When the Risk is Intolerable

Safety risks are conceptually assessed as acceptable, tolerable or intolerable. Safety risks assessed as initially falling in the intolerable region are unacceptable under any circumstances. The probability and/or severity of the consequences of the hazards are of such a magnitude, and the damaging potential of the hazard poses such a threat to safety, that mitigation action is required or activities are stopped.

11 Safety assurance A Quick Guidance

SAFETY ASSURANCE ICAO Annex 19, Appendix 2, 3.1.1 requires that service providers develop and maintain the means to verify the safety performance of the organization and to validate the effectiveness of safety risk controls. The safety assurance component of the service provider’s SMS provides these capabilities. Safety assurance consists of processes and activities undertaken to determine whether the SMS is operating according to expectations and requirements. This involves continuously monitoring its processes as well as its operating environment to detect changes or deviations that may introduce emerging safety risks or the degradation of existing safety risk controls. Such changes or deviations may then be addressed through the SRM process. Safety assurance activities should include the development and implementation of actions taken in response to any identified issues having a potential safety impact. These actions continuously improve the performance of the service provider’s SMS.

02 Safety Management Systems Back to Basics

The present module helps students to review the basic concept of the ICAO SMS Framework, as well as the importance of each of the 4 Components and its 12 Elements.

04 Getting started with the BowTieXP methodology

In this video we will show you how to start using BowTieXP, the most powerful risk assessment tool on the market. We will start with the first two elements: The Hazard and the Top Event. The video contains lot of real case scenarios which will certainly help you in understanding and associating with examples the method. A free BowTieXP demo can be download on our website mycs.swiss and you will be able to perform effective risk assessments.

06 Safety Control Barriers with the BowTieXP

In this video we will show you how to start using BowTieXP, the most powerful risk assessment tool on the market. We will start with the first two elements: The Hazard and the Top Event. The video contains lot of real case scenarios which will certainly help you in understanding and associating with examples the method. A free BowTieXP demo can be download on our website mycs.swiss and you will be able to perform effective risk assessments.

08 Winter Operations, Safe Snow Removal Operations

Runway safety still a concern. Winter operations can be challenging. The aerodrome operator has the obligation to ensure that everybody is working safely. We can only achieve it that if we conquer both: ‘Hearts & Minds’.

10 Risk Matrix A Quick Guidance

The ICAO Doc. 9859, SMS Manual presents the topic of the risk matrix. The index obtained from the safety risk assessment matrix should then be exported to a safety risk tolerability table that describes — in a narrative form — the tolerability criteria for the particular organization. Using an example the video explains the criterion for safety risk assessed as 4B falls in the “intolerable” category. In this case, the safety risk index of the consequence is unacceptable. Using the BowTieXP the organization can therefore take risk control action to reduce: a) the organization’s exposure to the particular risk, i.e., reduce the probability component of the risk to an acceptable level; b) the severity of consequences related to the hazard, i.e., reduce the severity component of the risk to an acceptable level; or c) both the severity and probability so that the risk is managed to an acceptable level.

12 Safety Promotion A Quick Guidance

Safety promotion encourages a positive safety culture and helps achieve the service provider’s safety objectives through the combination of technical competence that is continually enhanced through training and education, effective communication, and information-sharing. Senior management provides the leadership to promote the safety culture throughout an organization. Effective safety management cannot be achieved solely by mandate or strict adherence to policies and procedures. Safety promotion affects both individual and organizational behaviour, and supplements the organization’s policies, procedures and processes, providing a value system that supports safety efforts. The service provider should establish and implement processes and procedures that facilitate effective two-way communication throughout all levels of the organization. This should include clear strategic direction from the top of the organization and the enabling of “bottom-up” communication that encourages open and constructive feedback from all personnel.
