Sector Safety Risk Profile Program Review

Closed 29 Jul 2020

Opened 1 Jul 2020


We want your feedback to help improve our Sector Safety Risk Profile (SSRP) Program.

The program identifies safety-related trends and safety risk factors through the development of safety risk profiles for aviation sectors. It provides a framework for CASA and industry sector participants to examine risks and to identify where improvements can be made, sector by sector.

The SSRP Program forms part of CASA’s contribution to Australia’s State Safety Programme.

Since it commenced in 2013, the program has conducted fourteen SSRPs. These include the following SSRPs (previously known as ‘Sector Risk Profiles’) published on the CASA website:

More recently, CASA has undertaken work on SSRPs for the small aircraft maintenance sector and flight training sector.

Learn more about the program in this article published in Flight Safety Australia.

We are seeking feedback to evaluate the effectiveness of the SSRP Program. The survey asks you to provide feedback on the benefits of the program, industry engagement, uptake of risk treatment actions, and areas for improvement.

Whether you have participated in the program or not, your input is valuable to us.

The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete. Your response will not be published.
