SOAR Safety Occurrence Alert System
Safety reporting is the filing of reports and collection of information on actual or potential safety deficiencies.
Safety occurrence is the term used to embrace all events which have, or could have significance in the context of products, people, processes and aviation safety, ranging from accidents and serious incidents, through incidents or events that must be reported, to occurrences of lesser severity which, in the opinion of the reporter could have safety significance.
A common process (SOAR) for reporting, analysis and communication of product safety occurrences is deployed across our company, including safety alert reports, in-service reliability bulletins, and product safety reviews. The reporting system is used to make better management decision making and supports continuous improvement efforts.
Safety occurrence reporting aims to improve safety of products, processes and people operations by timely detection of operational hazards and system deficiencies. It plays an essential role in accident prevention enabling the identification of appropriate remedial actions by prompt analysis of safety data and by the exchange of safety information.
The purpose of this Safety System is to define product management processes related to product safety and manufacturing processes to ensure that the product functions as intended without causing damage or harm. This Safety System applies to all processes that have or can potentially have product safety issues. The purpose of this Safety System is to provide information and resources for the management of Product Safety during and after the production process.
Product Safety – Definition
The state in which a product is able to perform to its design or intended purpose without causing unacceptable risk of harm to persons or damage to property.
Product Safety Program
A product safety program is implemented at Aerosystems, including methods of continuous improvement throughout the product lifecycle. The product safety program includes predictive, proactive and reactive processes that are planned, resourced, communicated, evaluated, efficient, innovative and improved. The product safety program includes promoting a culture of safety and the lessons learned (ALLISS) from the events that occurred.
This Product Safety Program ensures that all Aerosystems employees are aware of Product Safety and that prompt Reports are made if any problems relating to the safety of Aerosystems products emerge. All operators must report their reports with the SOAR. The reporting system for acquiring events relating to product safety and voluntary reports takes place in a confidential form.
All Aerosystems teams, people and departments are welcome to use the SOAR.
