Frontline operational personnel are often in the best position to observe and identify operational hazards and conditions that could lead to accidents or incidents. Experience has shown that personnel will not provide information if there is apprehension or fear that such reporting will result in disciplinary action.

The reporting policy is typically documented in operations manuals or other controlled documents that are accessible to and used by personnel at all stations. To be effective, an “open” policy would typically be non-punitive and assure employees that reporting unpremeditated or inadvertent errors would not necessarily result in disciplinary action being taken against the reporter or other individuals involved unless such errors result from illegal activity, willful misconduct or other egregious actions, as defined by the provider. Also, employees need to be assured that the identity (or information leading to the identity) of any employee who reports an error under this policy is never disclosed unless agreed to by the employee or required by law.

ORM-S 1.2.4 ​The Provider shall have a policy that commits the organization to ensuring the health and safety of personnel engaged in the conduct of station ground operations, and which takes into account and addresses:

i) Operational risk assessment; ii) Equipment design and maintenance; iii) Training and competence of personnel; iv) Continual improvement of processes and procedures. (GM)

Management review is a necessary element of a well-managed company and provides a process through which organizational control and continuous improvement can be delivered. To be effective, a formal management review takes place on a regular basis, but typically not less than a minimum of once per year.

A review of the station management system would typically focus on ensuring station performance is consistent with the provider’s goals and objectives, and also include an assessment of opportunities for improvement and the need for changes at the station level.

An appropriate method to satisfy this requirement is a periodic formal meeting of the station management team. The agenda of the meeting includes a general assessment of the management system to ensure all defined elements are functioning effectively. The review also includes an assessment of operational performance to ensure the station management system is producing the desired operational safety, security and quality outcomes.

Station management ensures deficiencies identified during the management review are addressed through the implementation of organizational changes that will result in improvements to the performance of the system. Input to the management review process would include, but not be limited to:

1) Risk management issues 2) Safety and security issues 3) Quality assurance issues

4) Provision of resources 5) Operational feedback 6) Incident and near-miss reports

7) Changes in regulatory policy or civil aviation legislation 8) Changes in company and/or customer airline policies or requirements

9) Process performance and organizational conformity 10) Status of corrective and preventative actions

11) Follow-up actions from previous management reviews 12) Feedback and recommendations for management system improvement

13) Regulatory violations

Output from the management review process would include decisions and actions related to(:

1) Improvement of the effectiveness of processes throughout the station management system

2) Improvement of the management of risks

3) Ensuring the provision of resources necessary to satisfy operational safety, security and quality requirement

Management review is a formal process, which means documentation in the form of meeting schedules; agendas and minutes are produced and retained. Additionally, the output of the management review process would include action plans for changes to be implemented within the system where deemed appropriate.

1.6 Provision of resources

ORM-S 1.6.1The Provider shall ensure the existence of the station facilities, workspace, equipment, supporting services, as well as work environment, necessary to satisfy operational safety and security requirements. (GM)

[Insert check]

Auditors Comments

Add media

Station facilities, workspace, equipment and supporting services would typically include:

1) Buildings, workspaces and associated utilities

2) Facilities for people in the organization

3) Equipment appropriate for ground handling functions

4) Support equipment, including tools, hardware and software

5) Support services, including transportation and communication

Where infrastructure or equipment is under the responsibility of the airport authority, the provider would typically have a process to liaise with the owner to ensure the availability and serviceability of such infrastructure or equipment. A suitable work environment satisfies human and physical factors and considers:

1) Safety rules and guidance, including the use of protective equipment

2) Workplace location(s)

3) Workplace temperature, humidity, light, air flow

4) Cleanliness, noise and pollution

ORM-S 1.6.2The Provider shall have a policy that ensures station positions that affect operational safety and security are filled by personnel that possess the knowledge, skills, training, and experience appropriate for the position. (GM)

[Insert check]

Auditors Comments

Add media

For example, the position of station manager would typically have special prerequisite criteria an individual would have to meet in order to be considered for assignment to that position. Similarly, special prerequisite criteria are typically required for other positions that affect safety and security (e.g. front line supervisor, quality control manager).

Positions that require the implementation of security functions typically require completion of a background and criminal history check. A corporate personnel selection policy that applies to all operational areas of the company serves to satisfy this requirement at the station.

ORM-S 1.6.5The Provider shall have a policy that addresses the use of psychoactive substances by operational station personnel, and ensures:

i)The exercise of duties while under the influence of psychoactive substances is prohibited; ii)Consequences for such behavior are defined. (GM)

ORM-S 1.7.2 The Provider should have processes for setting performance measures to validate the effectiveness of risk controls in station operations. (GM)

[Insert check]

Auditors Comments

Refer to the ITRM for the definition of Performance Measure. A performance measure, which is a short- or long-term objective, typically identifies a target number or rate of occurrences in any operational area, and then tracks and compares the actual performance against the target rate or number over a period of time (usually one year

Creation of performance measures is typically an effective method for measuring operational performance to determine if desired outcomes are being achieved, and for focusing attention on the effectiveness of the organization in managing operational risks and maintaining compliance with relevant requirements.

In addressing the safety and security of operations, meaningful measures typically focus on lower level occurrences or conditions that are considered by the provider to be precursors to serious events. Performance measures may be specific to a certain area of operations, or may be broad and apply to the entire system.

1.8Operational Planning

ORM-S 1.8.1The Provider shall ensure the management system includes planning processes for ground operations that:

i)Define desired operational safety and security outcomes

ii)Address operational resource allocation requirements

iii)Take into account requirements originating from applicable external sources including, but not limited to, the customer airline(s), regulatory authorities and the airport authority. (GM)

[Insert check]

Auditors Comments

Add media

Management system planning processes are necessary to ensure sufficient resources are in place to meet station operational safety and security requirements, as well as to meet requirements from external sources, such as regulatory authorities and equipment manufacturers. Resource requirements would typically be determined through risk assessment, management review or other management processes.

Planning processes may result in the generation of goals, objectives or other types of performance measures that would represent the operational outcomes a provider plans for and desires to achieve.

Planning processes are typically part of, or associated with, the budgetary process, which normally takes place prior to the start of the following calendar or fiscal year. Such process generally results in a plan for capital and operating expenditures to support operations.

2 Documentation and Records

2.1 Documentation System

ORM-S 2.1.1The Provider shall have a process to ensure documentation and/or data used directly in the conduct or support of station ground operations is managed and controlled. (GM)

The primary purpose of document control is to ensure necessary, accurate and up-to-date documents are available to those personnel required to use them, to include personnel of external entities that conduct outsourced operational functions for the provider.

Examples of documents that are controlled include, but are not limited to, operations manuals, checklists, quality manuals, training manuals, training syllabi, process standards, policy manuals, and standard operating procedures.

An electronic system of document management and control is an acceptable means of conforming to the specifications in ORM-S 2.1.1. Within such a system, document files are typically created, maintained, identified, revised, distributed, accessed, presented, retained and/or deleted using computer systems (e.g. a web-based system). Some systems specify immediate obsolescence for any information or data that is downloaded or otherwise extracted (e.g. printed on paper) from the electronic files. ---Have a back up system/process

Auditors Comments

Add media

Refer to the ITRM for the definition of Operations Manual. A provider may not be required to maintain an OM for all customer airlines, or may be required to maintain only part of the manual for certain customer airlines. Based on customer airline requirements and the types of ground operations conducted at a specific location, only relevant parts of applicable manuals may be necessary.

Availability of only the provider’s manual may be sufficient when such manual is accepted by the customer airline(s) or when a customer airline does not provide a manual. A current edition of the DGR would include any Addenda that are applicable. Equivalent documentation would contain information derived from the DGR that is relevant only to the specific ground handling functions conducted at any particular location. Also, the ICAO Technical Instructions for the Transport of Dangerous Goods would be considered equivalent documentation. Applicability of dangerous goods requirements to ground operational functions is defined in DGR Section 1, Table 1.5.A. Guidance with respect to ERP requirements may be found in AHM 620.

2.3 Records System

ORM-S 2.3.1The Provider shall have a system for the management and control of station operational records to ensure the content and retention of such records is in accordance with applicable regulations and requirements of the customer airline(s), and to ensure operational records are subjected to standardized processes for:

iv)Designated qualified Individual to develop & manage the plan (4.1.2)

v)Procedures & assigned responsibility to appropriately trained persons (4.1.3/4)

[Insert check]

Auditors Comments

Add media

Refer to the ITRM for the definitions of Emergency Management and Emergency Response. An ERP would be designed to address events that could result in fatalities, serious injuries, considerable damage or major disruptions to operations. The plan would typically be based on an assessment of risk appropriate to the size and type of ground operations conducted at each location.

In some locations, a governmental, airport and/or other relevant authority assume emergency or crisis response. In such case, the ERP of a provider would normally focus on and address the scope of interaction with and/or participation in the response implemented by the authority. Likewise, where there is a common ERP that has been developed jointly by the airport authority and customer airlines, a provider might either use the ERP of the customer airline(s) or have its own ERP that is the same as that of the customer airline(s). In such case, a provider would typically ensure the responsibilities and duties assigned to its personnel satisfy all requirements of the plan.

Of particular importance, an ERP would have to ensure an appropriate level of coordination and communication is established and maintained with customer airlines during an emergency response situation

An ERP includes industry best practices and ensures community expectations are addressed. Additionally, an ERP typically:

1) Specifies general conditions for implementation;

2) Provides a framework for an orderly implementation;

3) Ensures proper coordination with external entities at all potential locations;

4) Addresses all potential aspects of an event;

5) Ensures regulatory requirements associated with specific events are satisfied;

6) Provides a scenario for the transition back to normal operations;

7) Ensures regular practice exercises as a means to achieve continuous improvement.
