Line Operations Safety Audit

General Concepts of LOSA

 

     A Line Operations Safety Audit (LOSA) is a formal process that requires expert and highly trained observers to observe operations in real-time and to collect safety-related data on environmental conditions, operational complexity, and human performance.

 

bullet

LOSA focuses on normal (natural) operations

 

bullet

LOSA is confidential and non-punitive

 

bullet

LOSA is predictive (when you are being predictive you are being very proactive!)

 

bullet

LOSA incorporates the principles of Threat and Error Management (TEM). TEM enables organizations to manage threats and errors so that those threats and errors do not turn into accidents and incidents in the future

 

bullet

LOSA is complementary to other reactive/proactive/predictive safety data collection programs such as Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA; also known as Flight Data Monitoring [FDM]), Maintenance Operations Quality Assurance (MOQA), Maintenance Error Decision Aid (MEDA), Ramp Error Decision Aid (REDA), and Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP)

 

bullet

LOSA is viewed very favorably by insurance companies and most offer reductions in insurance premiums for organizations that have a LOSA program in place

 

bullet

LOSA is highly recommended by IATA for airlines that intend to be listed in the IOSA Registry. The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) is the benchmark for global safety management in airlines

 

bullet

LOSA is an important element of your Safety Management System
