Safety is a core value at Cobham

At Cobham there is nothing more important than the safety of our people, customers and passengers. We uphold safety as our first priority above all other business outcomes.

Our Safety Management System is the cornerstone of our excellent safety track record. This is underpinned by our safety culture. Our goal is to achieve Zero Harm through a commitment to continuously improve the management of safety and safety performance outcomes.

We empower our people to make a positive difference to improve safety processes and protocols and we work closely with our customers and suppliers to ensure that clear standards of safety competence, cooperation and communication are strictly observed and upheld.

BARS Gold Level accreditation

Cobham was a founding member of the Flight Safety Foundation Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) program, having held Gold accreditation since its inception in 2010. The BARS program was established to meet an industry-identified need for a common global aviation safety standard for application to onshore resources sector aviation support activities.

The BARS Standard has been adopted by many of the world's largest resource companies to assist them with the management of their aviation risk.

We continue to maintain BARS Gold Level accreditation, and have fully approved and audited Regulatory compliance and Safety Management Systems in place across our operations.

CASA approvals

Cobham has developed a mature Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) approved Safety Management System (SMS), which is aligned to ISO 45001.

We also have a High-Capacity Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and CASA Certificate of Maintenance approvals.

We maintain a strong relationship with aviation regulatory authorities. We are regularly audited by CASA and other third-party organisations to provide the assurance that safety standards and regulatory compliance are always maintained.
