Audits and Assurance

Scroll

One of the fundamental aspects of safety assurance is to conduct audits against the Safety Management System (SMS) to determine that safety is being adequately addressed at all levels with a project or service.  Osprey have many years of experience conducting safety audits against a wide range of products and services. This includes the audit of specific activities, to the audit of complete SMS and includes the specific audit function conducted by an Independent Safety Auditor (ISA).

Similar principles apply to the operational and technical environs.  We have extensive experience of auditing operational and engineering procedures, including resource allocation to meet these needs.

At Osprey, our team has experience as (Lead) safety auditors with detailed knowledge of all aspects of planning and conducting safety, functional and technical audits on a diverse range of platforms, settings, and equipment.

We can support you in the following areas:

  • Audit of Safety Management Plans and/or the entire SMS
  • Audit of specific safety or training activities or technical capabilities/services
  • Compliance audit against safety regulation
  • System compliance audit of technical equipment/services against the client need and defined user/system requirements
  • Audit and review of operational procedures and working practises, including resource assessment/deployment

Independent Safety Advisor (ISA) / Auditor

Using a broad and knowledgeable pool of staff, Osprey have extensive experience of providing ISA support across a range of complex and novel systems.  We understand the often-unique challenges faced by our client-base and has the detailed knowledge and experience of the legal and safety regulatory framework to provide effective and flexible support to meet the demands of the programme deliverables.

This ISA role recognises that fully objective safety assurance requires a view that is truly independent of the Client and the Supplier. In particular the ISA must determine that the regulatory and other Contractual Safety Requirements have been both understood and fully met in relation to the scope of supply. In addition, the ISA must establish that the rigour of the System Safety Case is appropriate to the level of safety risk presented by the system and the supporting arguments and evidence is complete, compelling, and accurate.  Typically, the Osprey approach to ISA support is to nominate a highly experienced and competent main ISA supported by a team of other highly competent Subject Matter Experts (SME).

Osprey operate in accordance with the “Code of Practice for Independent Safety Assessors”.

The team at Osprey were outstanding in their approach to our project and throughout the timeline the team were fully supportive with their communication and interaction.

The output from the team proved to me that they deliver high quality pieces of work.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport

Osprey’s detailed evaluation of Gatwick’s ATC assets highlighted their unique ability to deliver a complex requirement within a challenging timeline.  Osprey demonstrated a high level of competence and experience that clearly demonstrated their understanding of the technical landscape and the strategic needs of our airport.  Their professional and collaborative approach ensured they worked closely with all key stakeholders to deliver the intended outcomes of the study on time and on budget. We were particularly impressed by their ability to flex their resources to meet our priorities.  I have no hesitation in recommending Osprey for future aviation projects of this nature.

Osprey provided a great service from the outset, and ensured that all aspects of the Safety Assurance documentation were accurate, robust and concise. It has been a pleasure working with the Osprey Safety Team, and I’d have no hesitation recommending their services to others.

West Wales Airport

To help find an acceptable interim mitigation for a proposed Wind Farm, LSA approached Osprey as recognised leaders in Wind Turbine Mitigation methods. As part of their remit Osprey reviewed the potential capabilities of the local radar as well as other mitigation technologies in relation to the anticipated turbine effects and our Operational Requirement. Based on their assessment of the available solutions, the local airspace environment and the demanding project timescales, the use of a Non Automatic Initiation Zone (NAIZ) was proposed.

Osprey subsequently developed the Radar Sensor Safety Case to include the NAIZ and supported LSA through the subsequent discussions with CAA SARG. As a result of these discussions the NAIZ was accepted into operational service prior to turbine operation.

The solution has subsequently worked well and has proven itself to be the right decision for the mitigation of the Wind Farm.

I would readily recommend Osprey to any ANSP seeking supportive and informed assistance in establishing mitigation of Wind Turbines on Approach Radars.

London Southend Airport

I found Osprey to be professional and responsive in meeting the demands of the Blackshark project. They were always on hand to address any issues and were pragmatic and practical in their advice. I would recommend Osprey to others needing similar safety advice and support.
