Safety Management Systems for Cargo Operations Staff – 1 Day

Introduction –

An effective SMS is an essential tool to raise the understanding that the cargo operators faces in respect of the various risks affecting the aviation cargo business.
An ICAO compliant Safety Management System provides a mechanism to proactively seek, identify, quantify and mitigate risks and potential hazards which exist in the business.

Moreover it provides for a mechanism to deliver a safer working process and environment in every facet of your day to day business.

There is an overlap between Compliance (Quality) monitoring and Safety and we well understand the importance of bringing together Compliance (Quality), Safety and Human Factors in the cargo operations environment.

We deliver SMS training for all elements of your business from a need to know overview for Cargo Managers and Supervisors, through specific training for cargo loaders and handlers.

We all talk about the need for safety, but often fail to take full account of the benefits of an effective proactive SMS as the means not just to deliver this safety but to introduce a systematic approach to identify hazards within your organization.
