SMS is a management system for integrating aviation safety activities into normal day-to-day business practices. ICAO & FAA envision aviation service providers will integrate SMS into their operations and management as a systematic risk-based and process-oriented approach to managing safety; including changes to necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, policies and procedures. ICAO has mandated and FAA has been considering SMS rulemaking to enhance the practice of managing safety and oversight of that management. Such an approach stresses not only compliance with technical standards, but increases emphasis on those aviation risk management systems that ensure risk management and safety assurance.

The Need

Aviation service providers face potential loss each day due to failures in processes, personnel, technology and/or external environmental factors.

Service providers need continuous monitoring and improvement of risk control measures to mitigate risks posing the greatest potential for loss and to keep abreast of regulatory requirements.

Most aviation service providers lack a centralized data management strategy to store and mine risk exposure data.

Service providers need to easily classify and prioritize risk exposure and to efficiently communicate those risks to the entire organization.

Operators require the capability to easily plan and manage activities that uncover risks and ensure controls are implemented to mitigate or transfer those risks.

SMS Pro has enabled a geographically dispersed charter company to effectively consolidate and manage a functional safety program. Now, our safety program is completely horizontally and laterally transparent throughout the organization and issues can be reported and tracked in near real-time.
