Course overview

What is a Safety Management System?

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

Course Overview

Organisations across the aviation industry are required to have a Safety Management System. But what is a SMS, and how does it work?

This course provides an introduction to SMS, based on ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices. On completing the course, you will have the skills required to develop, implement, manage and assess a basic SMS.

The course draws on the ICAO SMS Framework, EASA ORO.GEN.200 Rules and UK CAA SMS Guidance Material, along with experiences and observations from the UK CAA’s current oversight activities. The course is a combination of presentations, group discussion and practical exercises, delivered by UK CAA experts.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for individuals working in the Aviation Industry who require an introduction to Safety Management Systems to fulfil their role in contributing to safety.

Tangible benefits have been identified by Safety Managers, Quality Managers and industry and regulatory personnel with a safety remit.
