Course Description

A Safety Management System (SMS) is now a requirement for international commercial aircraft operators, international airports, and air traffic services. The standards and implementing procedures for SMS have been established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). All 191 countries that are members of ICAO have established or are establishing regulatory requirements for the implementation of SMS. This course teaches how organizations can establish a SMS within the context of their current safety system that meets the basic international standards of ICAO. The SMS Framework serves as a central foundation for this course.

SMS is a safety system by which an organization takes a more active role in the identification, analysis and mitigation of safety issues that occur in the normal operation of their organization. SMS requires that organizational management take responsibility for the company’s safety program. The SMS approach requires the safety/quality team be educated in their duties and responsibilities. This course will provide you with the essential skills needed to manage an organizational Safety Management System (SMS). The attendee will be able to manage a Safety Management System that includes risk management, audits, data collection, analysis, and incident investigations.

This course is designed for the individual responsible for planning or directing an aviation Safety Management System program. Fundamentals in systems organization and structure provide the individual with the essential skills and methodology needed to plan and manage an effective program. Emphasis is placed on understanding the principles of risk management, identifying program development strategies, audits and applying the knowledge toward effective management systems and interoperability with Quality Assurance.
