Which Standard is Right for You?
The (costly) IS-BAO Standard
For many corporate flight departments, IS-BAO is the standard of choice. OmniSMS meets and exceeds these requirements with an iPad and mobile-friendly application that delivers web-based hazard/occurrence reporting, policy, documents, flightrisk and maintenance assessments, audit checklists, and SMS eLearning courses. Provide simple hazard reporting or enable mandatory occurrence reports (MORs), configured precisely for the MOR events your regulators specify. When reports are received, auto-email notifications alert your flight department manager(s) via their mobile phone with a quick-link to the submitted report. Occurrence reports also automatically update key safety performance indicators, and alert management if a threshold has been exceeded.
FAA’s Higher SMS Standard
Discerning OmniSMS clients have chosen a higher path; one that not only meets all IS-BAO / ICAO standards, but also the requirements of FAR Part 5, Advisory Circular AC 120-92B, and FAA’s SMS Voluntary Program. FAA breaks down SMS components and elements into processes. OmniSMS addresses these processes with clearly written procedures and an intuitive web interface. Guidance is also built right in to the OmniSMS application, so admins and users understand what they need to do, how to do it, and why it’s being done. Above all, OmniSMS makes actual day-to-day safety risk management and safety assurance processes easy and effective.
Integrated Safety, Quality and OHSE Management
ICAO Safety Management Manual Document 9859 (3rd Edition) recommends an integrated management system for organizational safety, security, occupational safety, health and environment (OSHE), and quality management. OmniSMS supports these various functions to create a powerful and cost-effective solution:
- Risks of injury and environmental damage can be assessed and managed concurrently with their related aviation-activity hazards;
- A single reporting interface permits reporting of hazards, events, injuries, damage, security issues and customer feedback;
- Key performance indicators (safety, quality, and OHSE) can be configured based on your choice of hours worked, hours flown, or segments flown.
