Aircraft and Airport Operator Safety Assessments

Are you concerned that you may have gaps in your management systems?
Litson and Associates is able to carry out an Operational and Technical Assessment of your organisation and identify gaps in your structures, systems, policies, procedures and practices.
An Assessment of this nature could be considered a ‘friendly audit’ and in the same way identify the gaps (Findings) and make suggestions (Recommendations) regarding the manner in which these can be corrected (the Corrective Action Plan).
A comprehensive report is drafted, identifying not only the Findings and Recommendations but also making Observations on any issue, often complimentary, that is noteworthy. It is always good to know that a chosen work practice is regarded as positive.
Contact Litson and Associates for an unbiased Operational and Technical safety assessment of your Operation and move forward with confidence.

Safety Reviews on behalf of non-aviation Clients

Do you have need to use an Aircraft Operator – fixed wing or rotary wing, on-shore or off-shore?
Litson and Associates conducts Operational and Technical Safety Reviews internationally on behalf of Clients such as oil and mining companies and VIP clients requiring the use of aviation service providers.
