Oceania Aviation’s parent company Salus Aviation is excited to be introducing their new Safety Management platform across all subsidiaries. IQSMS (short for Integrated Quality Safety Management System) is an intuitive and user-friendly software that has been developed specifically for aviation organisations. The platform, developed by ASQS and already used by major aviation providers such as Lufthansa, Thai Airways and Cargolux, complies with ICAO, FAA and EASA frameworks which will allow the Salus group to continue to expand its operations across the globe.
“This web-based system increases the flexibility of our operations personnel to be able to access and interact with real-time safety information whenever and wherever required, from their tablet or smartphone” says Salus’ Head of Safety and Compliance, Armin Sadafi. The IQSMS Risk Module proactively monitors risk trends for the organisation, which enables management to continually make informed decisions for safety improvements. The Management of Change (MOC) feature tracks all changes within the organisation to ensure and verify that proper risk management processes have been applied. The Quality Management module is an industry proven tool that supports the entire Quality Assurance and Compliance Monitoring processes - from managing the audit plan and conducting internal and external audits and inspections, through to corrective action tracking and closure of findings.
Salus Aviation has been working with the developers of IQSMS, Advanced Safety and Quality Solutions (ASQS), for over three months now to ensure optimal integration and customisation of the software within current operating requirements. The new software is being rolled out in a stepped process with Salus Aviation’s New Zealand-based MRO business Oceania Aviation currently going through training of the system for a Q2 2021 roll out. The group’s USA-based organisation Heli-Parts Nevada (HPN) will then undergo training and roll out later this year. Says Jonathan Frey, ASQS' Director of Business Development Asia-Pacific, “We are incredibly excited to have Salus Aviation on board as our first customer in New Zealand, moving IQSMS into a whole new time zone, and look forward to supporting the organization in the optimization and synchronization of the group’s safety and quality management processes”.
The adoption of IQSMS will allow Salus Aviation to continuously improve and optimise their management of safety and quality across all group businesses using a consistent approach. This underpins Salus Aviation’s commitment to improving safety and quality within the aviation industry and is just one example of their ongoing investment in systems and processes that will set the business up for future sustainability and growth.
