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

B.Physical inspection. While physically inspecting the repair station, verify that the facility diagram(s) and description in the repair station manual are accurate. This includes any facilities used for spray painting, avionics, engine or airframe repair, or any other work that would have special requirements. Close attention should be given to specific information detailed in the manual, such as the type of heating, lighting, equipment location, electrical, and compressed air outlets.
C.Segregation and protection. Verify that each workspace has areas for the proper segregation and protection of parts and subassemblies during all phases of maintenance, preventive maintenance, or alterations. Inspect for the following:
The differences between serviceable and unserviceable components, parts, and materials must be clearly distinguishable throughout each process. This
