Safety Management Systems for Maintenance Staff – 1 Day


An effective SMS is an essential tool to raise the understanding that the organization faces in respect of the various risks affecting the business.
An ICAO-compliant (as opposed to the current EASA required) 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 a mechanism to deliver a safer working process and environment in every facet of your day-to-day business.

We understand the difference between quality and safety auditing, also the importance of bringing together Quality Safety and Human Factors in the workplace.
We deliver SMS training for all elements of your business from a need-to-know overview for Accountable Managers and Post holders, through detailed and specific training for Safety and Quality Managers.

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.

Sofema Aviation Services is a solid and reliable provider of services to the European Aviation Community. We are able to support you to understand and implement an effective SMS system in your workplace. We understand the issues which challenge your business and with our experience, we can help you to mitigate, and determine appropriate solutions.

The primary goal of this training is to focus on understanding of the role of Maintenance Staff within your company SMS.

This training assumes a minimal understanding of the SMS requirements.
