There was no correlation between the results of the operator’s Flight Operational Quality Assurance and Air Safety Incident Report investigations.
18 October 2011
Qantas Airlines is currently reviewing its protocols relating to Flight Operational Quality Assurance and Air Safety Incident Report investigations. As part of this review, Qantas Airlines will explore if it is possible to correlate these investigations.
The ATSB notes the review by Qantas of the interaction between its FOQA and ASIR systems. Whereas the correlation by Qantas of its FOQA and ASIR investigations would address this safety issue, the residual safety risk in respect of this safety issue without that action remains as low as reasonably practicable.
