On-site Audits and Audit Program Development

Our airport consulting staff has an extensive background in designing and developing programs to assist your operation with their specific audit needs. Safety and Security compliance audits can be performed by our staff, providing you with a completely unbiased account of the areas you want to be audited. Our programs and audits all include: Specific In-brief on the audit process, an understanding of the expectations, formal written audit findings, and a defined corrective action plan for audit responses by regulatory agencies. We can assist with a pre-audit to help you prepare, and we can provide help in writing your specific responses to a regulatory audit through our corrective action response process.

Training Program Development

SSi airport consulting team members have been developing training programs for all levels of the operation for many years. We can review your current training programs and provide you with suggestions on how to improve the outcome of your current training. We have sound instructional design techniques for the aviation community that include: presentation techniques, training manual development, presentation design ability, instructional design assistance, and blended learning methods that can embrace classroom, elearning, and practical application of learned methods.

Safety Management Systems (SMS) are a structure of policies, processes and procedures used to manage safety at all levels of an organization. An effective safety management system helps reduce and prevent accidents. SSi staff have advised and trained on effective implementation methods for several clients around the world. We assess current safety programs, identify gaps, and outline the best practiced ways to bridge those gaps. SMS is not currently required by US regulations for most operators however changes are in the works. We suggest a proactive approach by starting an SMS now so your department will be prepared for the future. During our classes with operators in ICAO signatory countries, we’ve assisted in planning, implementing and training for SMS to the benefit of a variety of staff.

SSi will consult and identify potential security weaknesses and design programs to mitigate vulnerabilities. SSi has a history of working with clients on specific recommendations to improve long term airport security. Holistic quality review of airport security programs (ASP) and implementation policies creates a unified Security Management System (SeMS). SSi staff advise on methods for creating security cultures which build into daily airport operations. The SeMS approach ensures that security is considered in all actions and behaviors of airport personnel. Establishing or improving security culture means implementing training for awareness and communications measures. SSi staff have assisted many airport clients to meet regulatory requirements, establish security performance objectives, and implement SeMS management concepts.
