Course overview

What is a Safety Management System?

A Safety Management System (SMS) within any organization provides a systematic approach to managing safety. For an SMS to be effective, there must be the necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, responsibilities, policies and procedures.  An effective SMS should enable an organization to identify hazards, assess risks and can be the mechanism to continuously improve safety performance.

Course Overview

In our Safety Management Systems (SMS) Principles and Applications course, you will have learnt how to implement and assess a basic SMS. Building on those foundations, in this advanced course, you will develop the skills and knowledge to competently evaluate the effectiveness of an organisation’s SMS.

This course draws on the ICAO SMS Framework, EASA OR.GEN.200 Rules and UK CAA SMS Guidance Material, along with case studies, experiences and observations from the UK CAA’s current oversight activities. You will benefit from the latest thinking on SMS, examples of best practice and the latest regulatory changes and policies towards SMS, delivered by UK CAA experts.

This training course is highly interactive and uses group activities and discussion to help develop your Safety Management skills.

Our Bahrain courses are delivered in cooperation with the Gulf Aviation Academy. Please visit the GAA website for upcoming dates.
