Quality and Safety

Overview

Oliver Wyman CAVOK's Quality and Safety team performs safety assessments and operational readiness audits to enhance compliance.

Safety Management System (SMS)

A safe and profitable operation starts with effective, intent-based compliance.   SMS is intended to be an integrated risk management system that compliments effective compliance.

SMS enhances a compliance management system it does not replace or substitute any aspect of it.

Oliver Wyman CAVOK works with clients in Flight Operations, Technical Operations, Ground Operations, MRO, Design, and Production Organizations using our four-phase methodology to perform and produce:

  • SMS Rapid Assessment to establish the current status of a client’s SMS performance
  • SMS Improvement to prioritize and implement improvements identified during the rapid assessment
  • Competence Development to develop skills and capability in safety leadership, the development of a performing management system, and a positive safety culture
  • Safety Assurance to reassess and continually improve the performance of
    the management system and the organization's culture and leadership

Using our assessment framework, Oliver Wyman CAVOK is able to prioritize opportunities and develop recommendations designed to improve performance and reduce the safety risk. Crucially, we include key enterprise performance factors that are vital to the success of SMS.

When SMS is not mandated by regulation, Oliver Wyman CAVOK is  able to assist clients with the development of an SMS Voluntary Program.
