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.”
