Aviation Maintenance Error Management System (MEMS) – 3 Days

Introduction –

Sofema Aviation Services offers Training, Support and Guidance to help you understand, develop and implement an Effective Error Management Systems to deliver the safest possible organization process.

With the forthcoming developments ofEASA Part 145 driven by NPA 2013-01 the developments of an Internal safety reporting scheme have been strengthened with the introduction ofas a separate provision 145.A.62 ‘Internal Safety Reporting Scheme’ and the existing provisions have been further enhanced and complemented with specific AMC and GM.
The new provisions aim at the establishment of a confidential internal safety reporting scheme as part of the organisation’s ‘safety information system’ to help the organisation foster its safety culture.

This is important as a strong safety culture is an essential ingredient for effective safety management.

It is important to note that the intent of the internal safety reporting scheme is not only to capture reactive safety information following from errors, near-misses or other undesirable events (occurrences) but also to capture safety hazards.

This Industry specific 3 Day course is aimed at the understanding andimplementation ofthe necessary elements to create an effective Maintenance Error Management System either stand alone or to become a component of the organizational SMS within your company.

The training considers the attributes of an effective and open reporting culture and how this may be fostered.

The training will focus on the use of the Boeing MEDA tool as an aid to performing event Investigations.
