Linked Reports in Aviation Safety SoftwareAirline and airport personnel routinely submit hazard reports to electronic hazard reporting databases. These Web based systems have considerable power to allow safety managers to easily perform risk assessments, classify reported hazards for future reports and conduct investigations. Corrective actions are applied and tracked to mitigate the reported hazard, accident or incident.
Risks Are Mitigated to ALARPThe objective of any risk management program is to mitigate or transfer the risk to as low as reasonably practical. Corrective and preventive actions treat the root cause of the reported incident, accident or irregularity. Effective corrective actions ensure that similar events do not recur, or when they do
recur, risk exposure is minimized.
In the real world, the best aviation safety management software tools allow safety managers to link related reports. Managers can then analyze related hazard or events and develop more effective corrective preventive actions. SMS Pro allows managers to effortlessly establish these connections and view related issues.
