EASA Fatigue Risk Management Systems For Part 145 Maintenance Organisations – 1 Day


The purpose of the Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS) is to ​promote a reduction, as far as practicably reasonable, workplace fatigue and its associated risks, to ensure a safe and error-free work environment for employees, contractors, and clients.

Driven by ICAO both the FAA & Transport Canada are also promoting effective FRMS within the maintenance environment.
Currently, EASA has focused FRMS within the Flight Operations environment however in the near future this will be expanded to include FRMS within Aviation Maintenance.​

​In preparation for the forthcoming changes together with the need to promote a proactive SMS within the ​MRO environment, this training focuses exclusively on the role of FRMS in the maintenance environment.

As with any Safety Management System, (FRMS should ideally be a component of your SMS) commitment from senior and line management together with clear consultation and effective communication with all employees should be ensured to provide a positive safety culture.

An essential obligation affecting all parties is the recognition of the shared responsibility between the Service Provider (The operator – Airline or Air Carrier) and the individual employee, together with the need for effective oversight by the regulatory authority.
