SMS for Accountable Managers, Nominated Post Holders and Key Executives

Courses top banner 18

Brochure ButtonWith SMS we have a set of regulations, which allow Industry to establish best-practice that fits different cultures and place the main emphasis and duty on improving safety performance. This requires a real “team effort” as regulator and airline are all part of one large system. Working as a team it will be possible to improve an already highly impressive safety record, and allow organisations to conduct more of their own oversight and assurance.

This training course develops the understanding of the organisations responsibility and how the key managers and executives can play a role in assisting to support and deliver a strong SMS system. In addition we should understand the opportunities presented by SMS as a “Management System” which can be used to improve and develop the business as well as optimize for risk exposure.
