SMS Implementation & Risk Assessment Review

Courses top banner 18

Brochure ButtonSafety management should be about more than just protecting your organization against undesired safety outcomes; it may also add value by supporting the optimization of organizational processes that drive efficiency and, when managed correctly, lead to financial savings.

SMS differs from other mandated systems. Why? Because SMS is a performance-based system, as such, it is driven by internally set organizational criteria.

While this will be challenging for the regulator to audit, the whole point is the recognition that it is an organizational system.

The needs of the organization should exceed its obligations to comply with any set of regulations.

Are you able to develop real and meaningful performance metrics? It is through such “deep and effective” measurement techniques and processes that we can demonstrate our internal and external assurance regarding our safety exposure.


Participation in the course would be extremely beneficial for the company’s accountable managers, as well as for their directors, managers, and stakeholders.


a) A practical assessment of the status of your SMS implementation, with a focus on gap analysis, measurement of current status, and practical implementation challenges, including the identification and management of hazards.

b) A full understanding of the current position identifies the organization's focus and considers a road map and time line to achieve the stated objectives.

c) Build this understanding into a range of opportunities that may be used to take the organization forward by delivering outcomes, identifying roles and responsibilities, and agreeing timelines.

d) Understand effective methods of identifying and controlling risk, which is an essential element of safety management.
