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

This course was designed to provide Safety Management Systems (SMS) refresher training to regulatory inspection staff and industry safety managers to reflect recent SMS regulatory changes and to share lessons learnt. As SMS understanding and implementation continues to evolve the CAA SMS evaluation tools and processes have also been updated. This includes increasing the focus on Human Factors as part of an organisation’s SMS evaluation.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for regulatory inspectors engaged in SMS oversight and safety managers or those performing SMS assessments that would like to refresh their knowledge on SMS and SMS regulations.

Key topics

This training course will include the following topics:

  • SMS issues and challenges
  • EASA and ICAO SMS updates (Annex 19 2nd edition and Doc 9859 SMM 4th edition)
  • Changes to CAA SMS tools and procedures
  • What to look for in an effective SMS

Course objectives

To provide regulatory staff and safety managers or those working in a safety team with an update on regulatory changes including updates to ICAO SMS regulations and guidance and EASA changes to implementing rules. It will also provide updates on CAA SMS evaluation tools and oversight processes.

Delegates attend a one-day classroom course facilitated by a UK CAA SMS expert. With a combination of presentations, open discussions and case studies it provides an opportunity to discuss SMS implementation and oversight challenges and the sharing of lessons learnt.

 

By the end of this course delegates will demonstrate an understanding of the following:

  • Recent regulatory changes to SMS requirements and guidance material
  • What to look for to assess the ‘effectiveness’ of an SMS.
  • Changes to the CAA SMS evaluation tools
  • Management of change evaluation tool
