RAMP AUDITS Ramp LOSA uses structured observa- tion checklists. The system for ramp comes complete with ready-to-use database and data analysis tools that are kept with the operator. There is no need for outside data storage and anal- ysis. This ensures that company data are secure and that analysis does not require external consultants. The accompanying illustra- tion shows the character- istics of the LOSA systems used for ramp environments. As you can see, LOSA is a joint effort by company management and labor to recognize early indications of threats and errors. SMS DATA TYPES SMS regulations encourage us to take our data collec- tion to the next level. Here's what we mean: • When looking at reactive data, the event has already occurred and the damage done. Companies usually have accident/event procedures in place and are prepared to launch an investigation team and establish fact- based contributing factors. Afterward, the FAA and any number of industry organizations and publications help disseminate accident/event data. This helps reduce the chance that the event may be repeated by another company. • Collecting, analyzing, and applying proactive data isn't new, only the emphasis on the term is new. Aviation organizations have auditing, quality, and safety departments that apply a multitude of operational measures gsm_18-21_RampSafety_V4.indd 20 3/11/14 9:02 AM
