Safety

Pre-emptive protection of resources and assets

At Air Works, Safety and Quality go hand-in-hand.

Safety in fact, is one of the cornerstones of Air Works’ way of working and shapes the way we approach our work and the assets of our customers. Air Works’ commitment to Safety across all aspects of our operations is so high that we even carry in our corporate positioning under the title – FLY ASSURED.

As per ICAO, “SAFETY is the state in which the risk of harm to persons or of property damage is reduced to and maintained at or below, an acceptable level through a continuing process of hazard identification and risk management”. This is addressed via a Safety Management System (SMS) which is defined as “Safety Management System is a systematic approach to managing safety, including the necessary organizational structures, accountability, responsibilities, policies and procedures.”

Safety Management System

Air Works understands and respects the industry’s focus towards Safety. Air Works is committed and makes earnest efforts to offer a safe and reliable working environment to employees, regardless of their location or work area. Employee safety cannot be compromised at any time.

In line with DGCA requirements, Air Works has a dedicated, internal, Safety team that is entrusted to promote programs that prevent accidents and incidents, mitigate risk and support operational excellence. The team uses audits, campaigns, hazard assessments and continuous training to not just share but also raise safety awareness throughout the organization. Scope of a safe working environment also extends to the external environment and the Air Works Safety team continuously monitors and ensure compliance with statutory and legal policies around waste generation and disposal.

Air Works’ Safety Management System is proactive, predictive, and data driven in nature and the program components include the collection, analysis, and dissemination of safety information across the entire organization in a systematic and structured manner. It is based on the following four components:
