Safety Gap Analysis Checklists & Software Tools for Aviation Safety

A Safety Gap Analysis helps uncover shortfalls in some process or characteristic. They are done against a template or model, such as SMS Pro's model adapted from various SMS guidance documents published in Canada, The United Kingdom and The United States. At the core of safety gap analysis checklist tools are two questions:

  1. Where are we?
  2. Where do we want to be?

Safety gap analysis checklist tools are often used to discover where to focus an aviation service provider's efforts on improvement. Safety gap analysis gapanalysis checklist tools compare characteristics of an organization's operations against an appropriate model. Safety gap analysis checklist results highlight areas where requirements of the model are not fully realized and details necessary changes.

Required changes indicate existing gaps between aviation service organizations' current operations and desired states and which areas are likely to be the most responsive to improvement efforts. Managers can then judge which areas, when improved, would be most beneficial to the organization.

The best aviation SMS safety gap analysis checklist tools have historical reporting to monitor continuous improvement.

Recommended usage:

  1. Perform initial GapAnalysis.
  2. Analyze where most improvement can be made with least effort.
  3. Perform another GapAnalysis.
  4. Determine whether improvements have been made.
  5. Use graphs to note improvements or degrading processes.
  6. Repeat as necessary.

SMS Pro™ has the following aviation SMS safety gap analysis Checklist Tools integrated into the Web-based database program:

Furthermore, SMS Pro's Gap Analysis tools have:

  • Charts and graphs;
  • Historical reports;
  • Enhanced documentation retention; and
