Safety Performance Monitoring in Aviation: Getting the most out of your data

BowTieXP Training

There is often an abundance of safety data available, but are you getting the most out of it? Understanding what your data is telling you is crucial. It helps you make the right decisions, effectively manage risk and continually improve the way you operate. This 1 day course gives delegates a solid foundation in safety performance monitoring principles and analysis techniques within an organisation’s Safety Management System (SMS). On completion, delegates will be able to identify the right data, correctly analyse it, draw meaningful conclusions and present it effectively. 


The course is delivered by Joji Waites who, with over 20 years experience in safety management including four years as head of the UK CAA safety intelligence department, is a leading expert in this field. 

Who is it for?

The course suits those in positions involving analysis of safety data on a day-to-day basis and is also relevant to those responsible for assuring their organisation’s safety performance at an operational level.
