Active Safety Management for Managers – 3 Days

Introduction –

This course is for the Core Senior Management Team and explores both the understanding and opportunity to lead the Organisational Safety Management System SMS Processes throughout the business.

Have you noticed that EASA does not identify the Safety Manager as the responsible person for the SMS? Moreover EASA identifies that it is not a requirement for the Safety Manager to attend top level meetings – all of this leads us to an understanding of the Management Team in particular the Accountable Manager and Post Holders (Nominated Persons) in respect of their specific responsibility to ensure an active and dynamic SMS which clearly benefits the organisation.

Perhaps not uniquely but without question “pivotally” Aviation Safety Management System is a “Top Down” system and it is essentially that it is “Managed in a proactive way by the “Senior Management”.

This 3 day course focuses on an understanding of Safety Performance within the Organisation as well as a deep understanding of the Management and Measurement principles of a performance based system.

The training explores the responsibility of the Management Team to deliver an exceptional SMS together with an understanding of how this may be achieved.
