Air safety management focuses on delivering an "acceptable" level of safety to stakeholders with a limited amount of resources. All managers recognize the need to prevent human injury and loss of life while also avoiding damage to property and the environment.
Air safety management has grown increasingly more complex during the past ten years due to regulatory demands that all aviation service providers incorporate a formal aviation safety management system.
Most operators had some form of air safety management in place before the 2006 ICAO regulations. These aviation safety management tools were rarely a concern for regulators as they have become today. When auditors visit flight operations, safety managers become frantic as they struggle to find the necessary documentation to support auditors' requests. There are even hired consultants who coach/mentor aviation service providers for the civil aviation authority's visit. When aviation safety auditors come and say, "Prove It," the mentors provided guidance, much like the legal profession.
SMS Pro™ was designed to "Prove It!" without the need for mentors or coaches. Safety managers can focus their energies on air safety management on a daily basis and easily answer auditors' requests for documentation because SMS Pro™ stores all documentation within one integrated safety system.
The previous video discussed risk management modules as safety management tools within the SMS Pro™ framework.
