As a leader in aviation safety in Canada, Jazz Aviation LP (Jazz) is pleased to announce that it has once again successfully completed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), the benchmark for global safety management in airlines. Jazz was one of the first airlines in Canada to achieve IOSA registration in April of 2005. Jazz has completed the process every two years as required, and the 2013 audit marks the fifth successful audit.
„Safety is our top priority at Jazz and is one of the reasons our operational performance is industry leading,” said David Deveau, Vice President of Safety, Quality and Environment. „The IOSA audit is an important recognition of the safety culture and the dedication to proactively managing risk at every level of the organization.”
The IOSA audit is designed to assess operational management and control systems of an airline, using over 900 internationally harmonized standards and recommended practices. These IOSA standards were developed by more than 100 highly experienced airline professionals with assistance from Transport Canada, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, all under the guidance and direction of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Airlines that have been audited to full conformity with IOSA standards make a clear, positive statement about the integrity of their operations and their ability to manage the associated risks.
Jazz was also awarded top prize at the European Safety management Symposium in London, UK in 2012 – winning the first Innovation in Aviation Safety Management Award. Jazz’s selection for this award resulted from their progressive integration of several existing systems into one holistic safety program that continues to enhance its safety culture and produce tangible results.
