Vector Aerospace UK broadens and strengthens approach to safety management
Vector Aerospace UK, a leading provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has selected Atkins Global as a collaborative partner in producing a Safety Management System (SMS) which will enhance the support of its operating processes. “We are looking to optimise and widen our current practices to ensure that we have a single, flexible and appropriate approach to Safety Management across all areas and locations of our business”, said Chris Hosking, Quality Director at Vector Aerospace. “We see SMS as something more fundamental to the way we operate than mere compliance; it is integral to how we work and correlates with the company’s core values in terms of the responsible behaviours and culture which we have historically cultivated”. The SMS will build upon the company’s successful pre-existing strategies, such as its ‘Quality & Safety 1st’campaign, which have helped to place health & safety, airworthiness and flight safety at the centre of all that it does.
