Safety management systems (SMS) are a formal risk management framework to improve safety.
Interested in leading an SMS workshop?
The Civil Aviation Authority is looking for experienced aviation educators to co-facilitate the recently developed safety management systems workshop.
This will be delivered in early 2020 as part of a group of courses the CAA will be offering, providing safety education and guidance. The workshop will be led by both an industry representative and the CAA: an example of collaboration and partnership for better safety outcomes.
Industry educators interested in working with the CAA on the delivery of the programme should visit the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS)(external link) website for further information.
Tenders close 17 October 2019.
Under SMS, organisations have systems for hazard identification and risk management, safety targets and reporting processes, procedures for audit, investigations, remedial actions, and safety education.
Implementing a SMS will provide an organisation with a simple and organised approach to preventing accidents or incidents, and is considered smart business management. A successfully implemented SMS will drive better safety performance. In turn, this will lead to a more profitable business.
See what great work is being done by other organisations on the road to SMS implementation.
Part 100 Safety Management, which came into force on 01 February 2016, prescribes requirements for SMS.
AC100-1 Safety Management provides explanatory information and examples of how to comply with Part 100.
