Best Risk Assessment Tools For Airline & Airport SMS Programs

After issues or hazard reporting has occurred in your aviation SMS system, your next step is for the safety manager to pull out his arsenal of risk assessment tools. Most aviation safety professionals imagine the 4x4 or 5x5 risk matrix as the risk assessment tool of choice. While the risk matrix is an important risk assessment tool, the risk matrix by itself would not be a complete, nor the best solution for an airline or airport safety program. SMS Pro™ has a very complete risk assessment tool that is very easy to follow. The process is repeatable, but yet flexible enough that one is able to adapt the process to the reported hazard.

Risk assessment tools are not the only tools that make up a complete aviation SMS program. Many competing aviation safety management software products for airlines and airports fall short here. They believe that if they manage the hazard reporting and provide rudimentary risk assessment tools, then they have an SMS suitable for any airline or airport. This is far from the truth.

Most operators neglect the fourth ICAO pillar, "Safety Promotion." The last video covered the gap analysis tool and Issue Validation portion of the risk assessment tools featured in SMS Pro™.

This next video works on the fourth pillar, "Safety Promotion" and an outline follows:

  • Issue Validation/Review Ensures Corrective/Preventive Actions Remain Effective
  • Auditor Reports Available to Managers
  • SMS Induction Manager Documents User SMS Training
  • Proves to Auditors Users Know Their Role in Airline/Airport SMS Program
  • All Employee Letter Announcing SMS Implementation
  • Meeting Manager
