Flight Safety Foundation Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) audits

The BAR Standard is centred around a risk-based model against actual threats in everyday aviation operations; aiming to provide an objective overview of an organisation’s safety systems and processes.

There are a large range of participating companies that utilise the information and resources of the BARS Program, from major mining and resources companies to government departments and humanitarian organisations.
