Safety begins from
both the top down and the bottom up. Everyone from administrators, students,
CFI's, dispatchers, mechanics, managers, and FAA inspectors have a role to
perform in a safe flight operation.
How do we gather
data regarding hazardous situations within the BSU flight operation? By
everyone utilizing and completing a Hazard Identification Tracking System (HITS) report on paper form or filling out the form online.
The online link is
preferred for record keeping purposes however the paper HITS form
located in the briefing room is acceptable and can be dropped into the
wall mounted black box. Although this program is designed to be voluntary and non-punitive in nature, students and staff must be accountable for their actions. Gross negligence and disregard for general safety as well as FAA regulations will not be tolerated.
