R.G.W. Cherry & Associates Limited is a U.K. consultancy company formed in 1992 from widely experienced Aeronautical Engineers. The company has achieved an excellent reputation for the quality of work delivered to airworthiness authorities, academic bodies, aircraft manufacturers, equipment suppliers and aircraft operators. In particular, it has longstanding relationships with the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, Transport Canada and the European Aviation Safety Agency, having fulfilled many contracts for them.
The company has provided System Safety Assessment training courses to industry for a number of years. We provide bespoke 25.1309 training at the customer’s facilities and have now launched on-line courses, with Cranfield University. The courses specifically address the techniques involved in carrying out System Safety Assessment. They have a large emphasis on delegate participation so that the participants can actually understand how to use the techniques. The subjects addressed include: Functional Hazard Assessment, Zonal Safety Analysis, Fault Tree Analysis, Enhanced Fault Tree Analysis and Failure Mode and Effect Analysis.
The course is aimed at engineers and managers that may be involved directly or indirectly with the System Safety Assessment process, although it is formulated on the assumption that the participants have had no previous formal instruction on safety analysis techniques and processes. It will, therefore, be of interest to both the experienced practitioner and the novice.
