Well there you have it. In the words of Mr Harris the policy and procedures don't need to be followed they are just a guideline.Although a CASA requirement all can be ignored. YIPEE !
Theft of company property policy - ignore
Equal opportunity & Harrassment policy - ignore
Drugs and Alcohol policy - ignore
Cardinal Rules - ignore
OH&S policies - ignore
The guys been out of his depth for years, now he's proved what we've known all along. QF have never followed their own procedures, they make them up as they go.
Can someone wake up CASA, or are they in the chairmans lounge.

What are you referring to?

He's saying that the proc's manual only applies to some employees who stuff up, not management if and when they choose not to follow it for whatever reason.

As a rough guess, I assume it has something to do with:
Qantas under pressure over alleged breaches - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-02-22/qantas-under-pressure-over-alleged-breaches/3847140)

Qantas has not followed it's own procedures related to Change Management. It forms part of the new CASA Safety Management System that sits in various Qantas Procs manuals.
For Engineering it is the E & M Procs and in all cases requires management to attain a commitment from all stakeholders after consultation and before endorsing the change. The stage puts a fresh set off eyes on human factors issues, training etc... and ensures that all persons associated with the change understand why it is taking place and do not get really fkn pi$$ed off and do bad stuff that could ground an airline.
It is all supported by ISO and EASA standards and is compulsory. So, lets see if CASA also think like Qantas who told us it was just a guideline. The Minister may have to remind them why they put Regs in place.

I guess the new enterprise agreement 'job security' clause
is getting tested here.
Well, that didn't take long...:yuk::yuk::yuk:

One thing thats really starting to get on my nerves is where exactly is QSRM in all of this. For an example, look at the A380 modelling. How many B2 guys are there compared to the original system. You train up a few framies who then supposedly know it all in regards to the aircraft, yet the real experienced guys are under-utilised in order to save a couple of bucks. And the same will eventually happen with type-A licences and us B1's. And then there is this LAME-less tarmac fiasco.
I guess it's more important these days to go around auditing toolboxes.....:ugh:

lmo management ffs. way out of touch with coalface reality.
