How SMS Pro Fulfills Aviation SMS Requirements

1) Has aviation safety officer been appointed?
Your flight-deparment needs to answer this. SMS Pro has a placeholder in the "My Safety" menu item to hold aviation safety officer information, thus making it easy for members to discover who the appointed safety officer is. 
2)Have details of aviation safety officer appointment been included in aviation safety management system?
SMS Pro encourages and offers a page under "My Safety" for Aviation Safety Officers to include their contact information. This page is titled: "Our Safety Officer." It includes:
  • Location (in case company has multiple divisions;
  • Name;
  • Formal title;
  • Phone;
  • Email;
  • Who aviation safety officer reports to; and
  • Date of appointment.
This page flexibly accommodate any organization size.  Use any terminology you like. 
3) Does aviation safety management system provide for aviation safety officer to have open line of communication to Chief Executive Officer?
This must be answered by your organization. Just by filling out the "Our Safety Officer" encourages this open line of communication when the "Who aviation safety officer reports to" is managed.
4) Are roles & responsibilities of aviation safety officer clearly defined & documented?
SMS Pro provides a template for the duties and responsibilities of aviation safety officers. Of course, we recommend you modify it to your organization's specific needs.
5) Does aviation safety management system include process to ensure staff & management will understand the roles of aviation safety officer?
SCSI is SMS Pro's training partner.  They are suitably qualified to train staff and management in all facets of aviation safety, including the role of an aviation safety officer.
Furthermore, by openly displaying the duties and responsibilities of the avaition safety officer in SMS Pro, this information is made available to the entire organization.  This leaves no ambiguity as to what role the aviation safety officer plays in the best aviation safety management system.
6) Has an aviation safety committee been established?
Not all organizations require an aviation safety committee. This question is left to you to answer.
7) Are details of aviation safety committee included in aviation safety management system?
Not all organizations require an aviation safety committee. This question is left to you to answer.
8) Are roles & responsibilities of aviation safety committee clearly defined & documented?
Not all organizations require an aviation safety committee. This question is left to you to answer.
9) Does aviation safety management system include process to ensure staff & management will understand the roles of aviation safety committee?
Not all organizations require an aviation safety committee. This question is left to you to answer. However, SMS Pro's framework easily incorporates the management of communicating this information.
10) Does aviation safety committee include representation from across the organization?
Not all organizations require an aviation safety committee. This question is left to you to answer.
11) Is there a documented process to ensure minutes of aviation safety meetings will be made available to all employees?
One of SMS Pro's premier modules includes the Meeting Manger. Safety minutes are easily documented and PDFs are generated and emailed to all invited members.  Managing meetings with SMS Pro is easy and we encourage organziations to use this feature not only while managing avaition safety programs, but also for meetings that don't specifically involve your aviation safety management program.
