Safety Management

We simply could not have attempted what we did without CDS. Their consummate knowledge of the UK MoD ILS, Safety and Training requirements was second to none.

Functional and Systems Safety Management

A serious workplace injury or death changes lives forever – for families, friends and for communities.
And for those that manage people, the responsibility for ensuring safety is clear, particularly for the Defence industry.
CDS offers comprehensive support services in the field of functional and systems safety management. Many of our Safety Engineers are ex-military personnel with significant experience in the delivery of safety and risk management advice.
We provide clients with clear, comprehensive, compelling and auditable arguments that their chosen systems and equipment are safe for use. All our activities are conducted in accordance with industry best practice and prevailing military and commercial standards including: DEF-STAN 00-56, DSA 01, JSP 454, 520, 430 and guidance given in the MoD’s Project Oriented Safety Management System (POSMS).
