Daily tailboard meetings and our “Stop Work” policy gives authority to any person on the crew to stop a project for potentially unsafe conditions, ensuring all Haverfield employees are aware and safe. Periodic unannounced on-site audits of our operations confirm process, procedure and execution compliance. Monthly Safety Committee meetings provide a feedback and learning loop for ongoing improvements and a continuous commitment to safety. Additionally, Haverfield holds a bi-weekly
Every other week Haverfield holds an “All Call” Safety conference where every employee participates. This call gives the entire Haverfield Team a forum to openly discuss ongoing safety policies & procedures, as well as the presentation of formal safety lessons.
At the core of Haverfield’s Safety and Training Department is a robust Safety Management System (SMS), evidenced by Haverfield’s achievement of International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Stage II Certification. IS-BAO is a code of best practices that have been developed by the aviation industry. IS-BAO performance criteria is intended to build upon the excellent safety record of already established business aviation operations, and the goal of an SMS is to effectively manage safety risks associated with Aviation and other operations. Every project goes through a thorough Risk Assessment & Risk Analysis prior to starting the project. No project is too big or too small, and none are exempt from this process. Having this depth of project expertise from the aviation vantage point is invaluable.
Haverfield maintains full-time dedicated maintenance instructors and staff, and supports a regimented aircraft rotation refurbishment program of one aircraft at all times. The combination of Haverfield’s robust in-house maintenance and refurbishment capabilities ensures the Company maintains some of the highest key operating metrics in the industry.
