The repair stations approved training program
The Safety Performance Analysis System (SPAS) is the organization’s primary source of comprehensive, integrated safety information that is used by inspectors, analysts, and managers in developing and adjusting field surveillance,
investigation, and other oversight programs. SPAS interfaces with key fielded oversight programs (such as ATOS, SEP, and the NPG), as well as other government and industry sources, collecting raw performance and operational data, analyzing and summarizing the data, and providing critical information in the form of graphs, tables, and reports. These SPAS outputs are then used to (1) identify safety hazard and risk areas; (2) target inspection efforts for repair stations, and to areas of greatest risk; and (3) monitor the effectiveness of targeted oversight actions. SPAS repair station profile and repair station analytical model (RSAM) are available for use. This data provides additional information on performance and risk associated with individual repair station facilities.
