Our approach is founded upon a scientific understanding of the impact of human fatigue on safety-critical operations, combined with extensive industry experience and an appreciation of commercial realities.
FRM is a specialist function within the Management System, requiring different measures and controls for other parts of overall safety and risk management. However, it should be integrated within the broader management system, and this integration and tailoring to your organisation is a priority within our approach.
Any organisation required to manage safety through a performance-based approach should consider FRM within their Management System, as fatigue is simply another hazard.
Additionally, FRM is explicitly required in the regulation for some organisations, including Commercial Air Transport operators globally, part 145 certificate holders in Europe, UK Rail operators, and is strongly recommended as best practice by the IOGP and IPIECA in the Energy sector. Our experts have experience working across these sectors, to identify risks, and assist in the implementation of effective management systems to ensure fatigue is managed.
Having made initial progress and implemented fatigue risk management, what’s next? Operators and regulators are asking, how do we ensure that fatigue risk is being effectively managed? Since the implementation of EASA ORO.FTL, Air Operators have been operating to the EASA flight and duty time limitations and managing fatigue risk.
Managers, the Fatigue Safety Acting Group (FSAG) and crew have been trained in how to meet their specific Fatigue Risk Management responsibilities, and most operators have a crew fatigue reporting system in place. This course will enable you to evaluate the maturity and effectiveness of Fatigue Risk Management within your Air Operation.
Practical guidance is provided on how to make improvements, including evaluating your FRM processes, engaging colleagues and embedding effective fatigue risk management.
