Speakers Kevin King and Steve Elliott, BAE Systems – Whiteley, Solent

In the 21st century, safety assurance in the defence industry in the UK has had to evolve to encompass the
provision of services in safety-related environments. When considered in the context of upkeep and
maintenance of assets ranging from the 800 year old HM Naval Base Portsmouth to the state of the art HMS
Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier, how such services are safely-managed is paramount. This presentation sets
out an approach to Product Safety management when the product is the “provision of a service”. Of importance
is the organisation’s recognition of their accountability for the services they provide throughout the period the
service is being delivered. The work underpinning this paper has contributed to the ongoing efforts of the SCSC
Service Assurance Working Group and the guidance being developed.
