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
LOSA focuses on normal (natural) operations
LOSA is confidential and non-punitive
LOSA is predictive (when you are being
predictive you are being very proactive!)
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
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)
LOSA is viewed very favorably by insurance companies and
most offer reductions in insurance premiums for organizations
that have a LOSA program in place
Need more information on LOSA before making your decision? No problem!
We offer a free LOSA Overview Seminar, on request, at your
location, so that your management team can see, in a face-to-face
setting, exactly how the LOSA process works. And rest assured that all
of your LOSA questions will be answered in real-time by our seminar

We can provide evidence-based
CRM course development
and/or training based on your LOSA results. Too many airlines rehash
the same old case studies year after year. Evidence-based CRM
training, however, is much more beneficial in that it utilizes
training subjects that are operator-specific, based on that particular
operator's LOSA results. Evidence-based training should be used to
keep your CRM courses current and relevant to your operation. Need to
train a company trainer?
We do that too! For
Surveys are an expeditious and cost-effective way to measure various
aspects of your company's safety culture. We are very experienced in
developing and deploying safety surveys to measure and monitor attitudes and behaviors of front line employees and management.
Let us know what you would like to measure and we will develop a
survey solution to fulfill your needs!
LOSA is not a stand-alone safety program.
Rather, LOSA is an important component of your Safety Management
System, and as such should be properly integrated into your
organization's SMS. We are experts in both LOSA and
SMS and can assist
your company in harmonizing these programs.
