Aviation News in the Spotlight

Posted By IRMSAInsight, 29 July 2014

Aviation news in the spotlight

Aviation incidents have made a number of appearances in the local and international media over the last few months. From the disappearance of flight MH 370 in March 2014 to the shooting down of MH 17 last week, as well as other less catastrophic incidents being reported, many Risk Management topics are forming around the incidents and some lessons or  conversation points are open for discussion around our risk management processes whatever industry we are involved in.

What is the value of managing and monitoring near-misses?

Earlier in July, a YouTube video was posted demonstrating a near-miss at the Barcelona-El Prat airport. This video has enjoyed enormous popularity with over 25 million views highlighting a potentially catastrophic incident that fortunately did not materialize.

Section 2.17 of the ISO 31000 standard defines an event without consequences as a "near miss", "near hit" or "close call". A near-miss could highlight a potential failure in controls and if reported timeously and managed effectively could prevent further incidents from occurring. 

As a Risk Manager:

·         Does your company record and monitor near-misses?

·         Do you see the value in near-miss reporting?

·         Have you experienced any challenges in implementing near-miss reporting?
