Understanding and Implementing an Effective SMS

Many aviation operations are already far along in establishing a formal safety management system (SMS)—they just don’t realize it. Most people are aware of personal safety issues in the workplace. However, aviation professionals must also have the tools to recognize situations that would elevate risk as well as the ability to implement controls to effectively mitigate those risks. Learn to foster a positive safety culture for future success.
Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, participants will learn:
•    The principles of SMS, including planning and measuring safety performance
•    How to identify hazards, and evaluate and manage risks
•    How to conduct an operational safety assessment
•    How to review and update risk mitigation strategies
