SAFETY & QUALITY
Walsh Avionics adhere to an independent quality system to monitor compliance with CASA and other regulatory requirements. Our quality audit program in which compliance with all maintenance procedures is reviewed at regular intervals, in relation to each type of aircraft (or component) is maintained. Our internal quality system includes regular monitoring of procedures, process reviews and internal audits.
Safety is the first priority in all our activities. We are committed to implementing, developing and improving strategies, management systems and processes to ensure that all our aviation activities uphold the highest level of safety performance and meet national and international standards. We manage safety in a systematic, organised way in order to minimise risk. We operate in accordance with our organisational safety system manual and provide our staff with regular safety education and training. Monitoring all civil aviation orders (CAO’s) and civil aviation advisory publications (CAAP’s) ensure our compliance with all safety regulations.
Human factors takes into account human capabilities and limitations at work and at leisure. It includes social and personal skills such as communication and leadership, as well as the physical and psychological factors that influence interaction with our environment. Human Factors are considered in conjunction with technical skills, both of which are important for safe and efficient aviation.
