Safety Management Systems for Operations 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 for 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 work place.
We deliver SMStraining 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 work place. We understand the issues which challenge your business and with our experience we can help you to mitigate, and determine appropriate solutions.
